Storyline

Hoaky, but fun
18 August 2001 | by scrappybillySee all my reviews

21 Jump Street was a show where it showed cops as attractive, ultra-hip, stylish people. The time at which it came out was when cocaine and heroin were really cool, so this was kind of like a propaganda show, where it had the up-side to not doing drugs. Johnny Depp and Peter DeLuise were always fast-witted cool kids because they were drug free and upholded the law. It usually seemed corny, but something about it was fun, always seeing them having fun while doing their jobs was so cool.

I can understand how Johnny Depp wanted to quit, because it didn't show a lot of things, like police corruption, or that it was completely unrealistic and the plots were contrived. But, with adequate directing and campy script combined with good acting, it was a great show.
