Zeus and Apollo were actually portrayed by several different Doberman Pinshers used interchangeably, and provided by professional Dog Handlers. While both dogs were clearly male, some female Dobermans were used to portray the Lads as well. See more »
Hawaii has some of the most stringent firearms in the United States and has since statehood. It is nearly impossible to obtain a handgun permit and as of 2017 less than 200 people on ALL of the islands of the state. Yet the entire series shows all of the major characters both armed with handguns and freely carrying and using them. This would not be possible. See more »
[Magnum is trying to tell one women why another is in his room]
It would take a 1930's movie to explain this and I bear no resemblence to Myrna Loy.

All episodes from the 1980-1981 season were altered for syndication. The original opening sequence and opening and closing themes were replaced by the more familar 1981-1988 opening sequence and opening and closing themes by Mike Post and Pete Carpenter. See more »
Magnum, where can I start? well, during a summer of inactivity and unemployment I stumbled across this gem on daytime TV, after just one episode i was hooked, the powerful theme and the twitch of the eyebrows,I rearranged my schedule (job centre appointments, job interviews etc, etc) to fit in around Mr Sellecks greatest moment, it got so bad that I had the theme on my phone and would get my friends to phone me, they never understood but when genius enters your life what can you do? I watched the repeats recently and felt alive again, I think there's a bit of Higgins in us all! I even remember falling off my sofa when Bruce Forsyth turned up on a game show Rick was on, if only modern television met such high standards
