Captain Fuller Becomes The New Head
23 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode entitled "Gotta Finish the Riff", we get to see Officer Tom Hansen and Officer Judy Hoffs get assigned to monitor a school principal after he gets death threats from the leader of a gang. Apparently,the leader has a score to settle something with him as the latter once humiliated him.Later,the gang managed to held the principal in hostage inside the school of 300 students which includes Hanson..Meanwhile,the Jump Street division is now headed by Captain Fuller after the death of Captain Jenko.Together with their new head,Hoffs,Penhall and Ioki try to save Hanson and take down the gang leader.

It was the last episode of Federic Forrest as Captain Jenko.Apparently,he was written out and replaced by Steven Williams,who now portrays their new head,Captain Adam Fuller.With their new head,the viewer gets the feeling that they team is now a police unit.Also,we get to treat them to capture criminals despite the fact that they maybe young High School students.Apparently,Williams is vital to the show's success.

Aside from the introduction of Captain Fuller,we also get to see Hanson playing the nerd and Hoffs becoming more assertive as a bad girl during their undercover.This definitely made the show a lot more interesting as well as both Johnny Depp and Holly Robinson were able to pull through a better persona of the characters that they are portraying.
