Intense Scene Followed by Jump Street Ridiculousness
27 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In what would arguably be the most intense scene of the series, Hansen is in the joint, lying on the lower level of the bunk bed. The whole prison is chanting, "skin the pig," again and again, and the floodlight lights up Hansen's cell. "Chilling." Intense." "Mind boggling." Only a few adjectives to describe the scene.

But then it melts into Jump Street ridiculousness. First, wouldn't Hansen go to PC in a Federal pen? Second, why do we see the normally sane Penhall going buggy to protect Hansen? Third, wouldn't the Warden bother to check that Ioki was dead, thus blowing Bookr out of the water? Fourth, why does Booker - who in the previous episode rightly note that Hansen ran himself up a rail - compound the same mistake by doing exactly the same thing? Couldn't Raymond Crane have taken over the area where Tower and Farrell were dealing guns by Eminent Domain rather than hoping gang bangers would kill each other off? Why did only Booker go down when Hanson was released? Penhall committed perjury and was in on the impromptu investigation with Booker and Hansen. Hansen should have demanded to be taken back to prison once he discovered Ioki was still alive. And even though Hansen was right about Tower and did not kill him, he broke every rule in the book breaking into his house. Why wasn't he taken to task for this instead of getting his badge back?
