To take his mind off his divorce, antimatter physicist Gus Lloyd started programming an action video game where he was the hero, his ex-wife Lauren Ashborne was the sidekick, and his father Jordan Kenneth Lloyd was Sebastian Jackal, a satanic figure who wanted to destroy the world with an army of thugs based on the people who made Gus' life a living hell. The antimatter experiments Gus and his friend Peter Rucker were running went haywire, reading the game's villain file and sending them into the real world to act out their programming. Gus, Lauren, and Peter are then forced to play the game for real. Written by

The second villain, "Evil Shirley" who is based on Lauren's mother fires icicles at her foes and her weakness is mud because Lauren's real-life mother is such a compulsive neat-freak. The only way to kill her is to drop a house on her (she's later hit by a motor home). See more »
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!
