Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
The landmark television series which catapulted the success of the FOX TV network and the career of Johnny Depp is now available in for the first time its entirety! All 103 episodes from the 5 season run of this groundbreaking drama are now available in this 18 DVD collection.
Co-created by Patrick Hasburgh and Stephen J. Cannell (THE A-TEAM, THE ROCKFORD FILES) not only dealt with timely social issues, but also featured a cavalcade of guest stars including:
Brad Pitt, Vince Vaughn, Jason Priestley, Josh Brolin, Christina Applegate, Bridget Fonda, Dom DeLuise, Rosie Perez, John Waters, Shannen Doherty, Thomas Haden Church, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Don Rickles and many more!
Officer Tom Hanson (Depp) leads his band of agents in the special Jump Street division by going undercover to infiltrate local schools to put a stop to crime and keep students safe from corrupt influences. The 21 Jump Street team is a mixed group including the wise cracking Officer HT Ioki (Dustin Nguyen), the brilliant Officer Judy Hoffs (Holly Robinson Peete), the streetwise Officer Doug Penhall (Peter DeLuise) and, in latter episodes, the renegade Officer Dennis Booker (Richard Grieco).
Bonus Episode: "Deals and Wheels: Part 1" which is a cross-over episode from the series Booker.

First, the DVD set Pros...
-The set is decently affordable at about sixty to seventy bucks (especially compared to the season by season box set cost.)
-The quality of the transfer is pretty close to the original Anchor Bay DVDs. The original source material was rough to begin with though, and there's only so much you can do to pretty it up. It's not the nest looking show on film.
As far as the cons go...
-The packaging is medium to subpar. Mill Creek is the king of budget DVD releases, and over the past year or so they've changed the style with which they box their DVD sets. Though the sets are packaged in clamshell-style cases, the DVDs themselves aren't housed on individual pegs or spindles. Instead they're individually wrapped in plain black paper sleeves which stack together and sort of snap into a frame on one side of the case. That means that when you want to pull out DVD #17, you have to pull them all out and sift through the sleeves, which can be a pain. With a smaller set it's not that big of a deal, but with these complete series sets it really gets to be a pain.
-There are no liner notes and no DVD booklet. You want to know which episode guest star's Brad Pitt? Go to IMDB and find it that way. Again, with a smaller or season set this wouldn't be that big of a deal, but with a complete series set it's really a pain.Read more ›

Non-sense talk from here on out:
I only have one complaint. Stop picking on Penhall. He is one of the most endearing characters I've ever seen(I own over 2500 movies, and 200 different complete TV shows) and they always give him the short end of the stick. Sometimes they even ignore continuity to give him an extra kick.
For Example(SPOILERS AHEAD):
The did an episode about suicide, and it comes out that Doug's mother committed suicide. That's terrible enough, but then later on in the series(less than 12 episodes), it comes out that his mother and father basically didn't care about him and that his father died when he was young too, and that he was raised from the age of 12 by his uncle. It's just mean. I could literally go on forever, but it really is said. Peter DeLuise did a great job with the character, and easily stole the show for me. I'm hoping something good happens for him before the end of the series.

|Is there an international release with the original music intact?||
The only international release that has the original music is the complete series released in Germany. It should say something along the lines of Die Komplette Series.
