Jem features three music videos spaced evenly throughout each episode breaking up the action nicely, the 80s style mix is the best soundtrack to a television show I've ever heard. The show has a talented voice over cast featuring Britta Phillips (singing voice of Jem), Samantha Newark (Voice of Jem/Jerrica), and Charlie Adler (Eric Raymond) as well as others. Episodes usually involve the rival band the Misfits and their attempts to thwart Jem's plans out of jealously. They are assisted by Eric Raymond whose goal is to regain control of Jerrica's business which he lost early in the series.Read more ›
Now, we have Jem. As with the recent reruns on The Hub, Shout! Factory has completely discarded the Rhino DVD masters and gone back to the old 1" broadcast masters. This works even better for Jem, because in addition to re-take issues, the Rhino Jem DVDs had horrific color timing, with Pizzazz's hair being a dull pea green instead of the loud neon green seen originally, and on the doll itself. However, three episodes ("The Beginning", and the first two episodes of Starbright) use versions of the episodes from earlier airings, so there are some extended scenes missing. Most likely, it's because the masters for the final versions of those episodes have the much-reviled "Jem Girls" opening instead of the original version of the theme song. Additionally, the opening and end credits for one episode, "Alone Again", look terrible, and there is dropout of the picture in one shot during the first song. These issues could have been quickly fixed, and are easily the biggest negative features of the whole set.
The sound is a stereoized version of the original mono, which has none of the issues the 5.Read more ›
I URGE EVERYONE with questions, concerns, and complaints about as well as praise for the Jem complete series set to visit the "Truly Outrageous World of Jem" KJEM online radio show website at [...]
Show hosts Craig and Amy welcomed Shout Factory producer Brian Ward for a lengthy and GRATEFUL interview about the creation of the Jem set a couple of nights ago. You can listen to Part 1 of this great interview by selecting it from the past shows list. All your questions will be answered by listening to this show. I'm sure Part 2 will be posted soon. As an original fan of Jem since '87, I teared up just listening to Brian's stories of the Jem project and the pride he took in producing it.
I received my dvd set the day of release from Amazon. I love the packaging (especially the iconic cover image) and the special features. The set is well-organized and colorfully worthy of the world of Jem. I am particularly pleased with the video jukebox as it plays the videos seamlessly with quick fade ins and outs rather than the glitchy way the Rhino set played them via search for chapters. AND the special feature documentaries are fantastic tributes to Jem.
As an owner of the Rhino sets, I admit I was surprised and a little disappointed at the obvious difference in quality of the Shout set. It's NOT bad but is different as it came from video masters rather than film as Brian explained. The colors sometimes appear either overexposed or faded and the image is often slightly blurred.
Eagerly searching for answers regarding the quality, I discovered a thread about the Jem set on Shout Factory's message board ([...]) and read every posting last night.Read more ›
