Meet Officer Anthony McCann
31 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Buddy System is the third episode of the fifth season of 21 Jump Street.

Officer Anthony McCann becomes part of the Jump Street crew.He is a new recruit and is partnered with a mentally-handicapped teen-ager in a school buddy system.He is there to investigate the death of his former partner.Meanwhile,Officers Judith Hoffs and Douglas Penhall work together to check McCann or Mac's background.

The new officer once again does not hold up to the previous characters of the show.Obviously,Michael Bendetti,who portrays Mac,is definitely not comparable to the former cast just like the new members that were central to the story in the previous episode.
