In the original series Magnum, P.I.: Did You See the Sun Rise? (1982) centered around Magnum and TC's brief time as POW's during the Vietnam War and a friend's search for their captor/torturer. In the original, their friend Lt. "Mac" McReynolds was killed and not Nuzo. Nuzo (James Whitmore Jr.) was revealed to be an enemy agent who was responsible for Mac's murder.

Whilst waiting on the boat for Magnum, Rick listens to music by the Spice Girls. Perdita Weeks (Higgins) appeared in the Spice Girls movie.
In the final scene, the little boy is wearing a Detroit Tigers ball cap, an almost-literal hat-tip to Tom Selleck's wearing of one in the original series.
Jay Hernandez (Thomas Magnum) and Nadine Nicole (Emily) have both played major characters (Dmitri Havelock in season 1 and Clarissa Mao in season 3) in the SyFy/Amazon series The Expanse.
