Did You Know?


The show is set in the US, but was shot in Vancouver, Canada which becomes apparent at times. In one of the earlier scenes in the episode "Mean Streets and Pastel Houses", a teenager is spray painting the word "Neighbours" on the side of the building. In the same episode, one of the leaders refers to the 3rd grade as "grade 3". See more »


During the scene where Tom first meets Lancer at the coffee shop, the spoken dialogue does not match the character's lips, and was added in at a later date. Tom refers to "kicking tail", but his mouth clearly says the word "ass". The spoken dialogue is louder and clearer on this part, indicating it was edited in at a later date. A few scenes later, Doug also refers to getting their "tails kicked", which was also dubbed in at a later date. See more »

Officer Hanson Goes Undercover As A Punk
6 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mean Streets and Pastel Houses is the finale of the 21 Jump Street's first season.We get to witness awkward scenes as we get to see Officer Tom Hanson goes undercover as a punk to go after the suburban rival gangs that have been providing a lot of destruction on the streets due to waging war against them.

This was definitely great episode.We get to see Johnny Depp portray Hanson extremely well as a punk as he does a lot of funny scenes that involved slam dancing,stage diving,jumping off speakers and crowd surfing.It will definitely one of the most entertaining episode of the first season and probably the best.In addition to that,the viewer is presented with a lot of themes that involve teen-agers.
