Today this cheesy bit of video seems a bit ridiculous, as '80s as big hair and synth pop. But hey, that pretty much sums up 21 Jump Street, one of the first TV series to put Vancouver on the map, according to Vancouver Sun. The movie is a spoof, but the original series was dead serious. Filmed here between 1986 and 1991, it introduced TV audiences around the world to the gritty back lanes of Gas-town, the gritty hallways of Vancouver high schools, and a bunch of not-so-gritty young actors and the blue neon "21" makes a zzz sound as it springs to life, followed by the fffffttttt of a spray can writing "Jump Street" graffiti on a brick wall. Jump Street has almost faded from the public consciousness, but it's about to stage a come-back: Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum star in a 21 Jump Street movie that comes out next week.
