I was very excited that they released 21 Jump Street on DVD. It was a launching point for many careers and provided entertaining moral lessons. So I go to play the first show and within the first 15-20 minutes I notice something. They redid the music. Maybe it was just a couple of songs. Nope, it was pretty much all of them. And it was done in such a way that it was obnoxious and often detracted from the stories. I had a VERY hard time watching the remainder of the season because the the remastering was done so poorly.

21 Jump Street was that really cool hip show that had some of the latest music of the time. And whether it was record companies wanting to charge for using their music or someone deciding that the music needed to be less "dated" ... whatever the reason, they made a bad choice.

I highly recommend that people rent this DVD before they buy it to make sure they are okay with it. I am not and will not purchase any more seasons until they put the original music/soundtracks back in.

Later Gators!

21 Jump Street launched two careers: one, most notably that of Johnny Depp and the other would be that of the young upstart TV network called Fox. It premiered in 1987 and was, in a way, a 1980's version of the mod squad. But it was original in storylines and ahead of its time in storylines as well. The storylines were dark and gritty as was the subject matter that fueld the episodes back then. There were topical issues touched upon on this series such as AIDS, death, rape, even incest and abuse. But despite those subject matters the series had many great comical aspects to it as well due to the fact that the cast through seasons 1-4 had great chemistry. Two people on the series that had the best chemistry were probably Johnny Depp and Peter DeLuise and that shown through when their characters "Hanson" and "Penhall" donned the alias' of "The McQuaid Brothers" in episodes where their characters had to go undercover in high schools.

The series ran strong for 4 seasons as a first run show, but during his last season (season 4) it was well known that Johnny Depp wanted out of his contract to move on to bigger and better things, and he also disliked the concept of cops going undercover in high schools and had some sort of moral objections. Season 5 is easily forgettable as Johnny Depp and Dustin Nguyen had left the show and the ratings dropped drastically so the show was put into syndication. So that was pretty much the death of the show as it became a shell of its former self.

Another thing about this series, though it was a show about young officers that looked young and were able to go undercover in high schools, in actuality a lot of the episodes didn't even revolve around that type of scenerio.

A fantastic TV series should be:

1. Groundbreaking - There is no show like this on television. It is not some clammy rehash of a rehash like, for instance, "The OC".

2. Has a sense of gritty realism - Watching a kid do a speed ball, or watching a kid fleeing from the police, crash, seemingly not on purpose.(I'm saying to myself, someone got hurt doing that stunt.)

3. Advances on its own terms - 21 Jump Street doesn't succumb to political correct speak around. A pleasant surprise upon viewing will be how people talk to one another. The first episode displays this when a kid refers to another kid as a "Homo". What show in recent memory has that type of dialogue? I can't think of any that are geared toward the age group that are viewing 21 Jump Street. And not to say that it's good or bad either way, but at least the show allows you to make up your mind about what you are viewing. Most will buckle and just take a phrase like that out for fear of reprisal.

4. Acting sincerity - I can't stand people who can't act and or get miscast. They can ruin an otherwise decent film/tv show, see Rhada Mitchel in "Man on Fire". The acting in this show is superb. Everyone flows together seemlessly and no one actor feels out of place, with the exception of the Capt. Richard Jenko, played by Frederik Forrest; Who is a very good actor, whom I felt was miscast in the part, and mightily replaced(was this the case?) by Steven Williams.

My girlfriend had never even heard of this show when I told her about it and upon viewing the first 1/2 of the pilot episode insisted we finish it that night.

Unfortunately I cannot recommend the company that put this to DVD. They did an abismal job.

I just got the DVD for Christmas and just got done watching the first episode and it seemed like something was amiss (besides the music). The last scene is missing the beginning AND the end. I have them all on tape off of syndication no less and the DVD version has been cut even more. I don't understand this at all. It's worth owning the DVD if you don't have the shows on tape but if you have the tapes already, don't waste your money, and don't throw the tapes away!!! 5 stars for the show itself and 0 stars for the repackaging!
