Is It Any Good?

The energetic, testosterone-filled reality game show features lots of swagger as men show off their skills on the court. While some of the dunks have lots of flair, it's often the slow-motion replays that demonstrate the technical merit of each one. The host and audience reactions are also entertaining.

Watching people dunk balls over and over might get a little tedious for anyone who isn't a hard-core basketball fan. Meanwhile, the NBA-themed show excludes female competitors and only shows women in the audience. But if you generally enjoy the sport, chances are you'll still find it fun.
