As much as I enjoyed season 4, I was extremely disappointed to find some scenes cut from the dvd. Actually scenes were also cut from the other 3. One episode in particular that really stood out was "Old Haunts in the New Age." There's a scene in this episode where Ioki, Penhall, and Hoffs hire a medium to channel the spirit of a man who's body was found in the basement of the chapel. While the medium invokes the spirit (pretends to), Hanson comes in and sits down. He listens to the farce and jumps up and pretends the spirit is coming thru him. Penhall remarks with amazement that Hanson's channeling Jim Morrison from The Doors. Afterward, Hanson sits down and tells the medium to give his coworkers back their money. In the dvd, You see Hanson come in, sit down, and tell the medium to return the money. The original scene that Johnny Depp performed was so excellent, it was memorable. It really aggravated me that it was cut from the dvd, as were other scenes in the whole dvd series. Yes! There were other scenes cut. This one stood out. I'm glad I taped the original series. Even though the scenes were cut, the show was still done very well. And the music. They made a mess out of that! They should have left the original music in. What they replaced it with was awful. It didn't fit the time period and you can tell. They should have left the music alone.
I've read in some of the reviews that Johnny Depp put in a lackluster performance in the 4th season because he wanted to leave the show. In spite of his desire to move on I found his performances to be no less stellar than the other seasons. I doubt very much if any actor of his caliber would jeopardize the potential to be offered other roles. If he hadn't moved on, we wouldn't be watching the films he's made since then. Regardless of the cut scenes and music changes, I'd recommend this dvd. The show was very well done.

this is from tvshowsondvd.com

We've received a number of emails from fans upset that 21 Jump Street season 4 is missing the final episode, "Blackout." We contacted Anchor Bay and were told that the episode would be part of the 5th season set, not the fourth. The episode aired between the end of the fourth season, and the start of the fifth, but Cannell considers it part of the fifth season.

Hopefully that clears up some confusion.

When at the end of third season,Harry Ioki was shot and Hansen was in jail. Season four starts off when season three left off. Dennis Booker and Doug Penhall try to get the guy who framed hansen and get him released-it seem almost like a 48 hours clone.

Depp tried to get out of his contract on jumpstreet to do movies, it did not happen. However his preformances on this season shows were less than stellar... and it shows.

There is a Booker spin-off with this season's episode (the 2 part Wheels & Deals) which set up a Booker spin off which lasted one season.

This was Jump street's last season, the fifth season was with out Nguyen and Depp). This was the shows winding down, there was good story lines with Holly Robinson and Peter DeLuise.

One of the best episodes in the futuristic clip show called Back from the Future. The highlight of this show is watching the cast in old age make up...trying to act 50 years older. Most of the makeup work look tacky. It is a cute clip show, directed bvy DeLuise, BUT Penhall as a priest..oh C'mon, someone make it more believeable!

This Jump Street season is the Jump the shark that TV shows are made of. BUT It is worth it? YES, as bad as it is at times, it better than most stuff out there today

Overall very good season, isn't as good as season 3 due to the lack of effort on Depp's part. The one thing that they did with the dvd that disappointed me was that they removed the song With or Without You by U2 from the episode La Bizca, and replaced it with some generic song. That song really made the scenes in this episode very emotional, this new generic song, however, doesn't do that at all. I was very disappointed as I have been waiting for the episode for a while. Oh well what can you do. This dvd claims to have every episode from season 4, but in reality they only have 25. They put in Wheels and Deals part 1 which was actually an episode from the spinoff show Booker (Dennis). They also axed the last episode of season 4 (though not the last episode filmed in order) Blackout, which was also Depp's last show. I'm guessing that they are gonna put it in the season 5 dvd to capitalize on Depp. Oh well. All in all a good set just wish they hadn't made those pointless changes.

I love the show and was pumped to see the fourth season. Unforturnately, it lacks something. It could be that it was Depp's last season on the show and his heart just wasn't in it. Perhaps the story lines were forced, rather than natural. Who knows? It is disappointing that the very last episode Depp was in, isn't on this collection.

If you are a 21 Jump Street fan, you'll want it for your dvd collection, but not for the entertainment value.

This is one of the best seasons of the series of 21 Jump Street.

It had very moving storylines - such as Doug and Martya (who was sent back to El Salvador and disappeared) to Judy being made detective and then raped. Ioki also had to deal with coming out of the coma and Tom - he was just the same as always.

This is also one of my favourite seasons as it is the last one before a couple of episodes in the next that Tom leaves the series unexplained.

I have already sat down and had a marathon to watch it all and I just can't get enough of it - if only TV shows were still as great as this! Go and buy it!!!
