My Obsession With “Jem And The Holograms”
“Jem and the Holograms” was my favorite television show as a kid. The show tells the story of Jerrica, a rich girl whose dad leaves her a record company when he dies. He also leaves her a pair of earrings that allow her to communicate with Synergy, a holographic computer. Synergy allows Jerrica to create an alter ego, Jem, to front a band to save her father’s record company. Goofy, yes. But I loved the over-the-top ’80s costumes and the fact that the show featured two kick-butt female bands, Jem and the Holograms in addition to The Misfits. So I am totally thrilled that on October 11th, the entire series comes out on DVD. To get you excited, behold. The first 10 minutes of the iconic show. Enjoy.
