A blast from the past… Jem & The Holograms out on DVD! Review and Giveaway

Growing up my kid sister loved this show – so like many things I suffered though watching it (instead of Thundercats or Transformers)… But none the less any child of the last 70’s and 80’s will know this show all too well!

I’m sure I watched a lot of Jem and the Holograms on TV when I was a child. I loved her pink hair as I think I tried to paint my sister’s hair once or twice – just trying to torment her!

Dont remember the show? here is a clip from Jem and the Holograms the Truly Outrageous Complete Series. This is a blast from the past to the point of where it all begins!

“Jerrica Meets Synergy”

 

On October 11, 2011, Shout! Factory, in collaboration with Hasbro Inc., released the long-awaited JEM and The Holograms: The Truly Outrageous Complete Series! 11-DVD box set, sparkling with all the episodes in the order they were intended and an exclusive extra DVD packed with bonus features, including archival material rarely seen by fans! Poised to present a hard-to-refuse offer for loyal fans, this uncompromising 11-DVD box set is collected in a specially designed box and will be made available in stores nationwide. Also available to own on the same day is the single season DVD debut of JEM and The Holograms: Season One in a 4-DVD box set.

The series “JEM and The Holograms” ran from 1985-’88 in first-run syndication and still boasts a loyal and vocal fan base. It is frequently credited with influencing fashion in the late 1980s and beyond, and launching the careers of female pop-rock stars and music groups. The series follows Jerrica Benton, whose discovery of Synergy, a powerful computer companion, allows her to transform from co-owner of Starlight Music into rock star Jem. Teaming with her sister and best friends who form The Holograms, Jem sets out to make their musical dreams come true, even as she battles against the ruthless Eric Raymond and his musical protégés.
