The adventures of JEM and The Holograms continue with a talent search for a new member, an Aztec mystery, a trip to meet the President, a Hollywood film and more! Jem and The Holograms are producing hit after hit on the music charts, but keeping Jem’s true identity a secret has been far tougher. Kimber, Aja, Shana and newcomer Raya are Jem/ Jerrica’s best friends as well as the musical force behind Jem — and the only people who know her true identity. Together, the girls provide cool cover-ups for Jem/ Jerrica while navigating some pretty sticky situations and battling their troublesome rival rock band, The Misfits!
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 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.
I own the complete series and I can tell you that owning the whole thing is worth it, so if you are a Jem fan, pre-order Season 2 today. Now bring on season 3!
