Penhall And Hanson Work Together
22 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"America, What a Town" is the next episode after the two-part pilot of 21 Jump Street.In it,we get to see Officer Judith "Judy" Hoffs get assigned to look after a Polish exchange student that came to town.Meanwhile,Officer Thomas "Tom" Hanson and Officer Douglas "Doug" Penhall goes undercover to investigate a high school mechanic shop for their involvement in a car theft by enrolling in a shop class.

This was a great follow up to the pilot episode.In it,we get to see Penhall and Hanson work together awkwardly as they sometimes lose patience with each other while investigating an auto shop involved in a carnapping.It is also weird how both acted together as police officers acting as if they are first-time officers.It was great to see Johnny Depp,who portrayed Hanson and Peter De Luise,who portrayed Penhall,having great chemistry together in their comedic acts.
