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.

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!

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).

Additional - Many of these episodes are just not the same without the music used when they originally aired: The Rolling Stones, Depeche Mode, REM, Blind Faith. The distributing company did not get the music rights (for whatever reason), so music tracks have been substituted with cheesy studio band music in a bad 80's style. It really changes the tone of some episodes. The music was so much better when the showed originally aired on Fox.
This series is about young police officers whose youthful appearance makes them ideal to work undercover in high school (and later episodes, in college) to solve crimes that involve or threaten teenagers and/or young adults. Often the relationships between the officers, or the officers and their boss, parallel the issues that are part of their undercover work for that episode. Not all episodes are intense. These shows include a nice mix of comic relief with serious issues and lessons learned. Watching the blossoming of the talented young actors (Johnny Depp, Peter DeLouise, Dustine Nguyen and Holly Robinson) is an added bonus!
This is a good series, even if a little bland compared to today's standards (dubbed curse words which today probably wouldn't be dubbed...and don't seem as bad comparated to some of the junk on TV today).
We enjoyed watching the episodes together and can watch them again at our convenience!
As far as the container that is used to hold the DVDs...The DVDs are in paper sleeves and are all stacked on one another on a cheap plastic holder..Definitely not all that great. This is pretty much just for those that are either fans of the show or of Johnny Depp.. I would recommend it solely on those grounds alone.
