I now understand where my infatuation with MUSIC comes from ... it's all from Jem and her gorgeous back-up all-female band, the Holograms. Let me begin first by saying, I have been longing for this series for a VERY long time and at long last, it has been released! For those of you who hear a slight "echo" on only some of the opening credits of some of the episodes or a slight variation in colour...please note that this series is from the 1980s and animation quality back then is nowhere near the level it is today. Please keep in mind that this is restored film from the '80s transferred to DVD. Yes, there is a lot of "high-quality" Jem episodes online on YouTube in HD but you will not find this sold on DVD anywhere. Thank you to the tireless efforts of Jem fans who have posted episodes online in HD quality that is absolutely stunning but if you are a true fan of the series, appreciate the quality of a hit '80s animated series as it was intended to be viewed! This DVD collection has all the episodes in pristine quality and you can tell the animation is brilliant in some episodes (no doubt, from the Japanese animation studios). All of the episodes are complete and present in this collection! The sound quality is very good and there is a "video Jukebox" at the end of each disc, so if you LOVE the tunes, you can listen to all the songs, one after the other, in succession!

Buy this series if you grew up watching it and love the glory that is Jem! This cartoon is my SOUL source of inspiration and I am glad that Shout! finally released it. I sing along to all the songs and dance to the upbeat tunes...I love Jem, she is TRULY OUTRAGEOUS!!!

I purchased the Rhino DVD release several years ago and have been waiting for the last part of the 3rd season to be released but they never did. So this box set is great b/c it has the complete 3 seasons with bonus materials all for a very reasonable price. Where I paid the same price for just season 1 and 2. I recommend this if you are a big Jem fan.

It's Truly Outrageous!!! I LOVE Jem And The Holograms!!! It's my favorite cartoon!!! I am a bit of a nostalgic and when I saw the DVD Box Set on Amazon, at that price, I jumped on it and ordered it right away! When I got it, I had a Jem Of The Holograms marathon and realized there were some episodes I hadn't even seen! I recommend this box set to all the Jem fans out there!!! You won't regret it! Yes, the imagine is a bit "pixelized" on an HD big screen TV since it's an 80's cartoon after all! However, on your laptop you won't have a problem. It's everything I remembered, I love it, I recommend it because I know your inner child will thank you and you won't regret it!

I originally purchased the Rhino versions of JEM, horrible, horrible mistake! I'm overjoyed that a complete series version has now been released like it should have been. Reliving my childhood has not been so much fun in a long time! I've even got my husband hooked. He thinks the Misfits are criminals and need to be locked up--lol!

To those who would like to know more about the technical specs, it looks exactly the way it did when we were kids--SD format with all the intro and extro bumpers in place. The extras are basically the music videos taken from the show. Lots of fun! Highly recommended!

I remember watching this on cable with my sister on Saturday mornings. Great cartoon from the 80's, for boys as much as for girls. Packaging it great, too!

Came intact. It was a gift for the gf so I don't know if the disc work but she'll let me know if they don't. So I'll give it a 4 right now and adjust after viewing if an adjustment is necessary! Gf is happy with the gift though so that's worth at least a 4 out of 5! And the package arrived two weeks ahead of the original delivery date, just in time for Christmas!

I bought this for my mom who used to watch it, and although it is way cheesier then she remembers it is still a fun little show. The songs are ridiculously catchy and any fan of the 80's would be missing out if they didn't at least try a couple of episodes. Fans of the show you will not be disappoint it has everything you remembered about it.

I love this show. I wish they would put it out on Blu-Ray. Good writing, cheesy music videos and fun times to be had all around. if you are nostalgic for the 80's, or just want to share this with your kids, its great for all ages. Its DVD, its 2.0 Stereo, it looks as good as the source material. lots of good bonus material too.
