Transit on film: 21 Jump Street

A classic clip: Rob Chew passed along the intro to season 4 of 21 Jump Street, which features a Flyer trolley bus (“14 Hastings”) and a Flyer diesel bus passing by an Army & Navy store. As well, the clip’s got Johnny Depp and a killer theme song! Thanks Rob!

(By the way, it’s been confirmed by several people that a CMBC bus can be seen in ABC’s new series Defying Gravity. Can anyone point me to a clip online? I haven’t managed to catch it yet.)

    From that season there was an episode which took place in an unnamed US city where crime was an issue on a “Hastings” Street.

    The shots of coaches displaying “14 Hastings” were used as establishing shots, and these are the same shots used in the title sequence.

    Did you ever see Johnny Depp in the city?

    They filmed some bits of the show at my high school (John Oliver) a couple times. Never saw Mr. Depp personally, but a bunch of my female classmates in the drama club who got to be extras all managed to get him to sign their posters/t-shirts/arms/etc… he was really nice even back then :)

    I remember “The Piedmont” being a bad neighbohood of whatever city 21 Jump Street was supposed to be set in… with Josh Richman of “The River’s Edge” http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0725042/

    I wonder if transit ever was represented in “Wiseguy”, paticularly in the Kevin Spacey arc which was actually set *in* Vancouver, as was the 1987 Sidney Portier movie “Shoot To Kill”…. where the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal was magically located on the Vancouver Waterfront.
