* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Subverted. In "Blind Justice", Magnum discovers that the man on trial for murdering his wife [[spoiler: is actually innocent ([[DrivenToSuicide she had committed suicide after years of his abuse]]), but that he had also gotten away with a different murder years earlier. When confronted with this fact by Magnum, the wife's mother, whose reasons are totally sympathetic, coldly defends her cover-up of the suicide to get her son-in-law on trial. What even the episode itself doesn't touch on, however, is that the person whom the husband ''did'' murder [[FridgeHorror likely had a family themselves and who would be denied justice by the mother-in-law's actions]], though [[NoEnding the episode ends before the trial's verdict.]]]]

** Is Higgens a JerkWithAHeartOfGold or just a JerkWithAHeartOfJerk? He doesn't really seem to like Magnum and doesn't really try to help that much (see "Thank Heaven For Little Girls And Big Ones Too" and "Tropical Madness"). *** Felt Higgins more slowly warmed up to Magnum after all he is very British and Magnum is an American surfer-dude.
