Overcome A False Charge
11 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Currency We Trade In" is the third episode of the third season of 21 Jump Street.In it,we get to see a popular sports writer get falsely- accused as a child molester.The accusations gets its bearing when Officer Douglas Penhall found the allegations of the ex-wife to be credible.Now,the 21 Jump Street crew must find a way to help him overcome the false charge given to him.

This was a decent episode as we get to see the crew do some detective work and provide the viewer that they can do it as well impressively aside from police work.It was also nice to see Sal Jenco in his recurring role as Sal "Blowfish" Banducci.
