Trivia

Episode 149 (the 22nd of the 7th season), where Magnum must be shot dead, was to be the last episode for the CBS channel on April 15, 1987. When fans learned this news, there was a Huge dispute movement, and this idea had to be modified by producers. Following the modification, Magnum is well felled, but in a dream. He left for a last season (the 8th), comprising 12 episodes.

The series began December 11, 1980, and ended on May 1, 1988 (in the USA). She was to start in May 1980, but had to be postponed until December due to GroĂȘve with Hollywood screenwriters.

Magnum was shot down at the end of the 7th season because the producers thought that the series should stop. When she finally continued, Magnum embodies for 1 or 2 episodes of this last season a ghost, then is brought back to life. Purist fans argue that throughout the last season, Magnum has never returned to life, and they support their words on the last episode, where Robin Masters' identity is revealed (completely opposite this that we could have imagined in the previous episodes), and where Magnum instantly changed to the Navy military. Another point of view tends to demonstrate that Magnum is really killed in the last episode, and that the last scenes take place in paradise.

The registration of the Ferrari de Magnum is: 56 e 478

Rick's full name is: Richard Orville Wright III
