My Future's So Bright I Gotta Wear Shades
28 June 2006 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

A night on the town mixed with partying, alcohol and drugs lands a young girl in the morgue, forcing Officers Hanson and Penhall to go undercover at the exclusive West Chadway Prep School where big time drug dealing is an extracurricular activity and enough money can buy your way out of anything even a triple rape and homicide. i really like this episode, iv rated it as though all 21 Jump Street episodes range between 1-10 as opposed to general liking of the show. i thought this episode was quite funny and the title was probably one of my favourite lines from the whole first series. Its was also the first really series crime that we see in the show and of course this brings extra thrills to viewers.
