    A lot of perfectly good film show their cards early, establish a unique premise and let the audience explore a topic at a leisurely pace, without much in terms of surprise. this film is not one of those films.

    I think this is a new genre that they're all sort of working their way through it and haven't got all the kinks worked out yet but it's a genre that works for me.

    This movie tries so hard to be funny, yet it falls flat every time. Just another example of recycled ideas repackaged with women in an attempt to appeal to a certain audience.

    Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable

    What a groundbreaking show! Credit to the producers for casting Dustin Nguyen in a mainstream role in a mainstream and incredibly popular police drama. I commend the producers for not making an attempt to whitewash Harry Ioki's role (looking at you, the people behind the American series Kung Fu, which should have featured Bruce Lee).The first three seasons were solid, and there was a wonderful rapport amongst the unit, and they looked out for each other. Unfortunately the direction got a bit languid when Dustin Nguyen and Johnny Depp no longer featured. The chemistry was missing and something was lacking - the x factor I guess. I was impressed with Richard Greico's appearance, and his spin-off series Booker was very underrated sadly.It was a shame Officer Dean Garrett (David Barry Gray) and Officer Kati Rocky (Alexandra Powers) only appeared in a handful of episodes, as they had real potential.

    Not one of my favourite series. I only watch 21 Jump Street a few times. Predictable story lines. Clische type characters for the cop genre. Over acting scenes with added drama. Geared for the female audience. Depp became a big part of the show. Hard to believe Depp started out a few year earlier with A Nightmare on Elm Street. Howerer, there where some bright spots with characters and scenes. John Debt has a few charismatic moments. A few strong episodes left the viewer moved. 21 Jump Street had many forgettable 1980's cop style episode. Action films began to die in the late 80's. The genre became dated. I gave 21 Jump Street 5 out of 10.

    I remember this TV show when i saw it first with my sister in the early 90s and then really got into it when I watched it with a friend on DVD. Personally I think that the first and second season is the best. You can kind of feel that beyond that the episodes aren't so good anymore. I love to see this show cause its so 80s! The style is great, colorfully even when some bad thinks are happening. Compared to new Teen TV shows (the German ones I know), its got a serious act but packet in a easy going show. I like the fact that in every show there is a new band adding the music. When you watch the episodes one after the other you notice that the same actors keep coming up playing a different role. I don't mean the main actors, but such as the kids in school.

    I was so excited to see that Jump Street was finally released on DVD here in Australia. I went and got the first season and was really disappointed with the quality of it. The footage was compressed to the point where its blurry and pixilated. I know its 80s footage but the distributors ruin it by trying to fit too much on the DVD.Any one from Australia if your wanting to buy the Jump Street series I would recommended buying it from the US instead, you will no doubt end up with a better quality product!
