Capitalizing on Our Childhoods: Part 48(!)

…And now they’re making a 21 Jump Street movie.

OMG stop it! Just stop it!

21 Jump Street was one of my favorite TV shows as a child. For a while, when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would respond that I wanted to work for Jump Street. That’s right. Lil Baxter wanted to be a professional narc. Blame it on Johnny Depp’s sexy double denim look.

johnnydeppThis is one of those shows that does not stand the test of time at all. It is incredibly cheesy and heavily influenced by the Nancy Reagan era. Come to think of it, it’s a lot like Walker: Texas Ranger in its profound use of hyperbole. But with hotter, younger folk.

Since Jonah Hill is producing, I’m sure he will cast himself in the Peter DeLuise role. Maybe it’s because he stole my more talented friend’s career, but Jonah Hill kind of bugs me. Not unlike the way in which I am bugged by a movie version of 21 Jump Street!
