Storyline

Jerrica Benton is the owner of Starlight Music and the Starlight Foundation, which is a foster home for young girls. But by using her earrings to project a holographic image over herself, she is transformed into her alter ego Jem, the lead singer for the successful music group, Jem and the Holograms. Other members of the group are Jerrica's sensitive little sister Kimber, the strong-willed Aja, and the creative Shana. The group's rivals are The Misfits, made up of the cold-hearted Pizzazz, the tough-acting Roxy, and the humble Stormer. Jem and her friends are always involved in glamorous and exciting adventures around the world, while touching people's hearts with their hit songs. Written by Anonymous

In the episode "In search of the stolen album", Jem and the Holograms get a ransom note. The first line quite obviously reads "In search of good times," but the girls read out loud and then repeat "In search of good tunes." See more »

Whatver happened to shows like this?
5 December 2006 | by QueerVamp20See all my reviews

Where did Jem go? Why did the last show end so oddly? Why was this the greatest show I almost didn't get to see, being that it came out 2 years before I was born and ended 1 year after my birth. Jem had it all:singing, quarrels, suspense, mystery, magic, and love. Heartwarming and magical for it's generation; and would still be for the new generations if it was able to be seen once again on television. Jem is the type of show that u would never have missed an episode, and if u did....someone would have recorded it for you. They have released the show on DVD though and it should be available someplace near you. I am unable to give anything away because if u really want to know, then go get your hands on the (now to DVD) series.
