    This episode is one of my least favourites personally, I think a lot of time was wasted on Penhall and Hanson chasing those kids around, what was at the outset a potentially good substoryline running along side Ioki and Hoffs undercover turned into a silly nonsense chase of two kids who wanted to have "fun". I think it would have been much better to concentrate more on the prostitution/burgalary storyline and somehow interweave Penhall and Hanson into that storyline. The Scences with the two kids were tedious to sit through personally once you knew they had just run off with money they did attempt to redeem this with comedy towards the end however but for me it wasnt enough and they left this episode being one of the worse episodes of Jump Streetmoreless
