21 Jump Street

Season 3

Released On: September 06, 2005
Region: 1
Production Company: Anchor Bay Entertainment

Description:
Although series creator and executive Patrick Hasburgh was gone by this season, episodes throughout continued to hold viewer intrigue.

Richard Grieco joined 21 Jump Street as Dennis "Booker" Booker. Booker is initially challenged by Hansen in the episode "Fun with animals" at the start of this 20 episode season (1988-1989). Booker's racist attitudes have inevitably lead Hansen to deduct that this new colleague must have raped a black student. Booker was supposed to have been killed at the end of this same season, but was later spun off into a very short-lived show called "Booker".

Another serious episode is "The currency we trade in". A popular sportswriter is suspected of being a child molestor by his ex wife. Penhall's subsequent belief of those same allegations complicates that writer's public life.

In "Whose choice is it anyway" Judy "Hoffs" Hoffs goes undercover as a pregnant teen to expose the threats which were being made against a family planning center by anti-abortionists. Before there was a federal law against clinic violence, owners and staff actually were at the mercy of their local law enforcement's priorities. This episode perfectly encapsulates then-present reality without boring the intended target audience.

The Jump Street division gets another hefty dose of politics when they attempt to bust the mayor's son for drug dealing. In 'fathers and sons' City Hall responds by trying to control who these cops can legally bust. The Jump Street cops are doing the right thing unless their actions hit too close to home.

Home is a visible theme throughout this season. Officer Harry "Ioki" Ioki (played by real life immigrant Dustin Nguyen) is an 'American cop' but continues to wrestle with Vietnam. During "The dragon and the angel" he learns of a way to get his grandmother out of Vietnam. After Ioki is seriously wounded in a dramatic two-part season finale "Loc'd out", Hanson honestly becomes motivated to seek revenge for that incident.
