** Is Higgins 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").

* 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.]]]]

* ThrowItIn: "Don't Say Goodbye": Magnum pushing Amy Crane into the water then jumping in himself once confronted with Stewart's boat hook was ad-libbed by Tom Selleck. It wasn't part of the script, but was left in at Selleck's insistence.

** Ivan calling T.C. by the "N" word in flashbacks was controversial even in the 1980s, but it certainly won't be said on U.S. network television now.

John Hillerman would later actually play Dr. Watson in the 1990 TV movie ''Hands of a Murderer'' alongside Creator/EdwardWoodward as Holmes.
