I only can say: NOT WITH ME!!!!!!

In spite of the one episode "Blackout" that Hanson is in (from season 4), I tried to watch the rest of the shows, and it felt like so much was missing.

Sure, Johnny and Dustin are gone, and Peter doesn't last long, but the new cast members were great.

It should first be noted that Johnny Depp is not a member of the cast of 21 Jump Street during the 5th Season. He left the show after the 4th season. The show was then cancelled by Fox and was produced for one more season in syndication. The only reason Depp was included on the cover of this season set was because "Blackout", a 4th Season episode, was held back from the 4th Season DVD Set for this one. So be forewarned when buying this set that Depp appears in only one episode, and following that he and Dustin Nguyen leave the show, followed soon after by Peter DeLuise. Only Holly Robinson and Steven Williams remain from the original cast. Michael DeLuise joins the cast for a bit as Joey Penhall and Michael Bendetti joins the cast as Tony "Mac" McCann. The formula of the show largely remains the same, though the show's production values descrease with the move to syndication, and the cutting of the budget per episode. This was not a bad season, as per usual with this series, some storylines were weaker than others, but overall the season is entertaining, with Holly Robinson being the focus of most of the episodes, especially after Peter DeLuise and Michael DeLuise leave. However, again let me just repeat that Johnny Depp appears in only one episode and buyers of this set should know that, so there is no confusion on this matter.

The biggest problem I have with season 5 is that ALL 4 of the other seasons were done on single-sided discs with nice cover art, and on this one, they took the cheap road out with double-sided discs, which are more prone to disc errors. BOOOOO! They should have held the consistency throughout the series rather than just slipshod this one together the way they did. It's nice that the series is complete, but they really should have done a much better job putting this set together.

What a blatantly sleazy way to get Depp fans to buy this last season. What a marketing strategy! They must think the buying public is stupid! In spite of the one episode "Blackout" that Hanson is in (from season 4), I tried to watch the rest of the shows, and it felt like so much was missing. Ioki was gone too, and it just wasn't the same. They should have just renamed the show as a spinoff. Nope. Just wasn't the same.

I have to agree that showing Johnny Depp on the cover -- especially that prominently -- is misleading, however, as a fan who remembers that year I have looked forward to the season five collection possibly the most of all. That season never got the acclaim it was due, mainly because of the switch to syndication and the cast changes. Sure, Johnny and Dustin are gone, and Peter doesn't last long, but the new cast members were great. Even the ultra-short-lived new cops who only lasted the first couple of episodes and then disappeared are worth watching again. I remember having a hard time finding the show on TV when season five started, and now I can actually kick back and enjoy those "lost" episodes. However, I still wish the marketing people would have played up the existing cast rather than the absent Johnny Depp, because that's sure to incite furor from his fans -- many of whom are too young to remember Jump Street. Sure, his picture will sell DVD's, but why sell DVDs to people who are just going to be upset when they watch it? Doesn't seem like good marketing to me ... Anyways, this DVD is recommended to all Jump Street fans, although Johnny Depp fans will probably want to stay clear of it.

I received 21 Jump Street Season 5 over the holiday season and I just finished up watching it with my wife (this was the first season she has ever seen). Overall it was ok, but dissapointing. Judy Hoff and Cpt Fuller both performed admirably as the cast kept changing. The episodes focusing on each one of them were definitely the highlights of the season. Home Girls, Poison and the Education of Terry Carver were some of the better episodes. While Officer McCann performed admirably as a "Poor Man's Johnny Depp," the other cast additions were horrendous, including Joey Penthall (he had some chemistry with his brother, but outside of that, his character was annoying as opposed to being amusing).

The character switching in the 1st couple episodes was unexplained and distracting. To go from an episode with Johnny Depp to an episode is was a no-name cast was poorly done. They should have started with episodes starring Hoffs or Penthall and transitioned in some new characters. The episodes involving high school story lines were far superior to the episodes that took place outside of high school. Finally, seems odd that the last episode listed Doug Penthall in the credits, but he was not in the episode. Overall, the Jump Street dynamics worked best with multiple storylines and multiple actors. For the most part, the last season only involved 2 or 3 main characters as opposed to 4. It is still worth watching, but it does not live up to the earlier seasons.

Okay, let's clarify this. Yes Johnny Depp is on the cover and only appears in the one episode. BUT... the box does say that the Blackout episode (a very good one) is his last appearance. Now this episode was filmed for season 4 but for some reason it was not shown until the syndicated season 5. So it does belong on this set. Johnny Depp was so unhappy on the show by this time that he mumbled his lines, wore a patch over his nose and obscured his face with his hair. The rest of the episodes are hit or miss, with characters just disappearing, but it is nice to complete the set even without much resolution.
