Valeria – TwoCents Reviewer
When rewatching (or perhaps watching for the first time) the premiere episode of 21 Jump Street one can’t help but only imagine how Johnny Depp must feel about the job that made him a household name.
The show is dated, the dialogue, at times uncomfortable to listen to, but after sitting through the entire premiere, I began to realize, 21 was really a kind of starting block for modern cop dramas and outlandish teenage behavior on television – so maybe the show looks dated just because now I have Law & Order to compare it against. Not to mention, it introduced JD to the world – which is something I’m sure we’re all grateful for.
