      “Best Years Of Your Life,” is a weird title for this episode about suicides, mainly teenage ones.

      When Penhall and Hanson are undercover they arrest a young boy named Walker Stevenson. A few days later, after getting out of jail and talking to Hanson, Walker kills himself with a rifle in his parent’s living room. Hanson is upset that he might have had something to do with it and tells Captain Fuller that he needs to know why Walker did what he did. He also does not want to have to worry about every teenager he arrests committing suicide. Penhall does

      not seem to care and even makes weird and very un-funny jokes about suicide.

      After Hanson helps a young girl at school who is thinking about committing suicide, he goes to Doug’s house and tells him about it. Doug is not impressed and he and Tom argue. Penhall finally admits that his mother committed suicide when he was 6.

      Later on, Hanson is with Fuller at Jump Street when Dorothy, Penhall’s girlfriend, shows up. Dorothy is frantic because she cannot find Penhall and turns to Hanson for help. Hanson finds him and they talk again. Penhall admits that he ...

      • tried to commit suicide when he was a kid. Even though he used vanilla extract, the intent was there. Tom apologizes for not having seen the signs and suggest that Doug get help, which he does at the end.

        Peter DeLuise did an impressive job of acting in this episode. Yes, we know that he is great at comedy but this episode proves that DeLuise can do drama as well. He had me crying when he told Johnny Depp about his mother’s death and the after effects it had on him in his life. It also makes the viewers realize

        that there may be some childhood issues in Penhall’s life that makes him act like a child every so often.

        This episode gave us a sense of what families go through when loved ones kill themselves. The little brother of Walker yelling that he hated his brother and would kick him in the ass for what he did if he was here is very real life. Not everyone mourns the ones who commit suicide as the sister did in this episode - some get very angry and have to work through that anger so they can begin to mourn and heal.

        Very good episode.
