* CompleteMonster: Colonel Ivan in "Did You See the Sunrise?", arguably the worst in the show's history. Not only did he torture Magnum, Rick, and T.C. in Vietnam, but he comes back years later simply to [[ForTheEvulz finish the job]], eventually [[spoiler: brainwashing T.C. to kill the others]]. Is it any wonder Magnum does what he does in the end?

** Magnum, Rick, and T.C. calling Lady Ashley a "dog" from her photo in "Computer Date" comes off as horribly sexist now.

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Episodes like "Wave Goodbye" deal with the PTSD of Vietnam veterans.
** "Blind Justice" unflinchingly deals with domestic abuse.
** "Find Me a Rainbow" centers around a black-market baby adoption operation.
** "The Aunt Who Came to Dinner" made ''Magnum'' one of the first television shows to address the subject of Alzheimer's disease.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: In "Past Tense", Higgins explains that telling T.C. his stories after T.C. had been shot was meant to keep him from slipping into a coma. In "Under World", that's exactly the thing that rouses T.C. out of his coma.

** Higgins in "Let the Punishment Fit the Crime" stages a production of ''Theatre/TheMikado'' with a traditionally all-white cast, which goes on with no problem[[note]] (save for an unrelated assassination attempt on his friend Sir Cedric)[[/note]]. Nowadays, he wouldn't be able to do so without public outcry.
** "Luther Gillis: File #521": Good luck seeing [[OnceAcceptableTargets an old woman]] being punched out cold for comedy on TV today.



** Edwin Clutterbuck in "Black on White" casually uses the "W" word to refer to Kenyans, and while done intentionally to highlight his racism and SmugSnake character, such usage could never happen today. Unsurprisingly, his uses of the word have often been [[EditedForSyndication edited out of UK airings.]]
