** "Stand by your Man" starts as a standard episode where the team investigates drug abuse. But that case itself is solved within 15 minutes and the episode turns out to be about Judy's rape, making her the victim here instead of the police officer.

** "Stand by your Man" starts as a standard episode where the team investigates drug abuse. But that case itself is solved within 15 minutes and the episode turns out to be about Judy's rape, making her the victim here instead of the police officer. It's much more dramatic and less crime/action oriented than most of the series (see also "Break the Cutie" above).

** Tom Hanson in season 4. He starts the series out as a well-spirited and motivated man. But during season 2 and 3 he is broken down by, amongst other things: having his girlfriend shot dead in front of him in a mugging and his guilt over not having been able to prevent it, causing him to slip in a PTSD-like state for a while ("Orpheus 3.3"); an undercover operation in a mental institution gone wrong causing him drugged off and lost in the system ("I'm OK, You Need Work"); an undercover operation in juvenile prison making him cynic/doubtful about whether what he's doing as a cop is actually making lives better ("Swallowed Alive"). But the straw is the season 3 finale ("Loc'd Out"), [[spoiler:in which he is wrongfully convicted for murder and sent to prison even though innocent]]. Beginning season 4, [[spoiler:he's proven innocent, released from prison and returns as a police officer]], but the rest of season 4 he seems a darker, broodier version of himself with a permanent expression of chagrin on his face. He keeps mentioning during season 4 that he wants to quit the police force. Beginning season 5, he's [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome suddenly disappeared without explanation and his co-workers seem unaware he's ever existed]][[note]]The character's "soullessness" and constant questioning of his job, reflected the actor portraying him. Johnny Depp had been trying to leave the series for years but was contractually bound to it. He clearly had lost all motivation for and enjoyment of the show by this point, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zs9Nubd_ImQ as he even openly told in interviews]].[[/note]].

Due to the drastic difference in tone and contradiction of the show's continuity, the movie is not necessarily recommended for fans of the series.

Due to the drastic difference in tone and contradiction of the show's continuity, continuity[[note]][[spoiler:Tom Hanson and Doug Penhall die in the movie]] (reportedly Johnny Depp himself demanded his character to die in the movie as a condition for accepting his cameo role) being middle-aged, working for the DEA in 2012, while in the "Back from the Future" episode of the series, they are shown [[spoiler:to have lived to be very old men in the 2030's after quitting police work]][[/note]], the movie is not necessarily recommended for fans of the series.

** Incidentally, this is one of the few Creator/StephenJCannell shows where the theme tune was ''not'' written by Mike Post (see also ''Hawkeye'' ([[MarvelCinematicUniverse not that one]]), ''Cobra'', ''Street Justice'' and ''Missing Persons'').

** This was also Nadia's motivation for going after every man she met in the first episode. She was hoping she could find a way to stay in America.

* BreakTheCutie: Season 4's "Stand By Your Man" does this to Judy, who gets raped by a med student she's been getting friendly with as part of her cover identity, and spends the rest of the episode dealing with the emotional and legal fallout of confronting her accuser.

* OutOfGenreExperience: While early seasons almost exclusively revolved around the Jump Street cops posing undercover in high schools, later seasons saw more episodes where the main plot didn't focus on a student, or students.
** In "Shirts and Skins," Penhall investigates the murder of a neo-Nazi leader with an adult son [[spoiler:who is eventually revealed as the killer]], while Hoffs and Aoki blend in with anti-racism vigilantes.
** Numerous later-season episodes which focus on the officers' personal lives, as opposed to campus or youth crimes.
