21 JUMP STREET: NEMESIS

Olivia Barash guests on 21
Before shrugging your shoulders and screaming at the top of your lungs in a bedroom full of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN posters, “Where’s Johnny?” take a look at this tensely entertaining episode of 21 JUMP STREET titled NEMESIS where Depp has little screen time... yet it's still pretty good. 

Richard Grieco takes center stage going undercover in a group of high school druggies including REPO MAN ingénue Olivia Barash, who scowls and grins with a sexy, sinister prowess.

Grieco’s gritty Officer Booker gets in deep when the gang realize a narc's in their midst. The best moments have Grieco staying cool as the clique eventually blame the people around them, and then each other. And although TV standards keep the kids from being realistic, uttering lines like "Bodacious," they all seem crafty and crass. Especially after the death of the most logical suspect where, during a funeral scene straight out of TRUCK TURNER, each punk spits on the grave.

A sultry Kristina Errickson plays the ingénue – falling deeply for Booker, she hopes to God he ain’t the rat. The most intense scene has everyone checking Booker’s bedroom. Olivia Barash merits the essential suspense here; as the most curious of the bunch, she almost finds the truth.

Once suspicion mounts, Booker fakes an argument with his mother: like any druggie would do. The ending has a neat melodramatic twist in the Femme Fatale Film Noir fashion, and both Johnny Depp and Peter DeLuise appear for separate brief chats with Booker who, in over his head, has to take on this do-or-die mission completely alone.

  1. 21 Jump Street is as fresh and original a comedy you'll ever find that is based on a totally stolen concept. If only all Hollywood rip-offs could be this good.
