Like, wow- oh my goodness! Shout! Factory is like, totally releasing Jem! to DVD later this year! I know- isn't it totally bodacious? Who would've thought? I mean, gag me with a spoon!
(Okay, like I'm really getting way too much into this Valley Girl talk.) Laughing
Anyway- check out this totally awesome link for more info- http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Jem-early-word/15159

Hopefully, Shout! Factory will be able to complete the DVD set Rhino Entertainment started some years back. And by the way, series creator Christy Marx will be doing some commentaries for the DVD set. Very Happy Cool
All right- that's all the news I have for this right now. Now back to rocking with Jem & The Holograms. Smile

I was so disappointed in the trailer for the movie. I was expecting something outrageous, but instead I got something outraging. Jem wasn't my favorite cartoon from my childhood, but I have come to embrace the awesomeness through repeated viewings over the years. From what I hear the Misfits are not even going to be in the movie.

Yeah, this is the word I seem to be seeing online from a number of the fans. From what I understand, Christy Marx wasn't even asked to be involved with the movie- and she actually already had her own treatment prepared for a possible movie! It's pretty crazy. Too bad- it would have been nice to see a good "Jem and the Holograms" movie- don't know that this movie is going to be it, but I will try to be optimistic until I have a chance to actually see it before deciding it's all bad.
(See this site for more info about the making of the movie- http://www.rockjem.com/movieinfo.html)

I'm not necessarily a huge Jem fan either, but I do remember watching it some as a kid and it was a pretty fun cartoon. Hasbro did a good job of making it enjoyable for girls and boys, though it was obviously mainly aimed at girls- but boys could still enjoy the action and the music too though.

For me, Jem was a filler cartoon. Something to watch to pass the time between M.A.S.K., Transformers or G.I. Joe. I enjoyed the shows but do not consider myself a fan. So a movie is of no interest but it would be nice to see the old cartoons rebroadcast again on television.

Jem and the Holograms actually was airing for a while on what is now the Discovery Channel for Kids cable station. (That was as recent as I think the last year or so.)

I believe is still on Netflix. I know it is not the same as being on a television station, but it might be worth checking out.
