Storyline

21 Jump Street is the headquarters for a squad of police officers who specialize in investigations relating to young people. Each of the Jump St. personnel was selected for their ability to pass for high school or college students, allowing them to operate undercover in areas where it is difficult for regular police officers to blend in unnoticed.

Goofs

Throughout the first season Hanson repeatedly says "tail" when his mouth obviously says "ass." This was a post-production change in response to network censorship, who thought the word "ass" was inappropriate. See more »

Quotes

Dave, the poet junkie: Save your preach, cop. I reject everything, man. And it's not because I'm unhappy or confused or afraid of reality. See, I can, I can, chew up the nastiest tastes reality has to dish out, man. And if reality serves me up some raw sewage, man - I'll, I'll slurp up a whole toilet-bowl full and call it ambrosia.
Officer Dennis Booker: You always had a way with words, Dave.

Hoaky, but fun
18 August 2001 | by (Phoenix, AZ) – See all my reviews

21 Jump Street was a show where it showed cops as attractive, ultra-hip, stylish people. The time at which it came out was when cocaine and heroin were really cool, so this was kind of like a propaganda show, where it had the up-side to not doing drugs. Johnny Depp and Peter DeLuise were always fast-witted cool kids because they were drug free and upholded the law. It usually seemed corny, but something about it was fun, always seeing them having fun while doing their jobs was so cool.

I can understand how Johnny Depp wanted to quit, because it didn't show a lot of things, like police corruption, or that it was completely unrealistic and the plots were contrived. But, with adequate directing and campy script combined with good acting, it was a great show.
