Silly series with plenty of cool cameos
This series wasn't around too long but had some pretty cool moments while it lasted.

Gus, a loser who is having problems with his wife, creates a video game with himself as a hero called The Cold Steel Kid. He battles Jackal(played by Christopher), an arrogant and almost game show host-like villain, who always seems to defeat him. But once Gus finally masters Jackal, the unreal happens...Jackal becomes real! Jackal escapes the game and beings to terrorize Gus with other characters from the video game, all of whom Guz based on people who terrorized/traumatized him in real life, including a quarterback called "Killshot", his ex-boss(Lavar Burton with steel hands and cool contact lenses), a cover girl(Kathy Ireland in her bra & panties) and even his old camp conselor. Silly and definitely entertaining!
