21 Jump Street S1
Best known today as the series that helped launch Johnny Depp to stardom, Stephen J. Cannell's 21 Jump Street was also one of the first hit programs for the fledgling Fox network, a status that lasted for most of its five-year run (1987-91), thanks to its engaging mix of youth culture and police drama. As outlined in the pilot, Depp's baby-faced Ofc. Tom Hanson is transferred to the special Jump Street division, a unit that utilized young cops to infiltrate juvenile crime. Unlike many of Fox's youth-oriented shows of the period (i.e., Beverly Hills 90210), Jump Street took its stories seriously, and addressed numerous social issues in its episodes; though some of the fashions and slang seem dated, the program remains entertaining decades later. The Jump Street set compiles all 13 episodes of the debut season, including the two-part pilot; the solid extras feature commentary by co-star Peter DeLuise, as well as interviews with fellow Jump Street officers Dustin Nguyen, Holly Robinson Peete, and Steven Williams (whose Captain Fuller replaced Frederic Forrest's Jenko halfway through the first season), as well as the prolific Cannell. --Paul Gaita --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

That said, I'm quite annoyed with the people who put it on DVD... I've experienced "music-changes" on the Quantum Leap Season 2 box set and I admit that in some occasions it REALLY made me mad... what the h**l are people thinking??? Just put the ORIGINAL music and UNCUT episode d**n it!!! I AM WILLING TO PAY A BIT MORE SO THE STUPID MUSIC INDUSTRY GETS THEIR SHARE, BUT I, AS A CUSTOMER, WANT THE COMPLETE (!!!!!) SHOW. Sorry for shouting.
And as far as the word "ass" being dubbed over... I read somewhere that THAT had been done already when the show aired. If that's the case, ok. If not... we get shows for teens like Dawson's Creek and Charmed (no offence to either show), nowadays... they have pretty heavy stuff there: do we really need to dub over the word "ass"????
Still, buy the dvd, I think it's worth it.
For me the show still holds up even today, i've watched old reruns of the dukes of hazzard or the a-team and ask myself what the heck i use to like about them, but with 21 JS i didn't feel the cheesiness as i did with the others. Of course the show is not as dark or violent as if it would be if it was made today, but change the clothes, the hair and the music and i think the show would still fit in today.
The only thing i didn't like about the set was the menues because it keeps playing the first 15 seconds of the team song over and over and over and over... Which kind of gets on your nerves when your looking through the episode, scene and extra selections.
