* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Is Magnum good or evil? The show plays with both, as Magnum is a {{hero}}, but can be ruthless.
** 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.
* AwesomeMusic: The opening theme music by Mike Post.
** The original theme by Ian Freebairn-Smith is also pretty catchy.
* HilariousInHindsight: The bad guy in "Don't Say Goodbye" is played by [[spoiler: Ted Danson, several years before he and Tom Selleck were two of those ''Film/ThreeMenAndABaby''. Unfortunately Steve Guttenberg never appeared on the show to complete the set.]]
