Is It Any Good?

Gamekillers (and some of its cast) got its start as an extended Axe deodorant commercial, and it's as much a vehicle for promoting Axe Body Spray as it is a reality game show. The series is peppered with "Axe Tips" about dating and women. And if the featured contestant still has game at the end of the date, his name is engraved on the Axe Gamekiller Chalice alongside notable names like Hercules and King Henry VIII.

Specifically targeted to the Axe-wearing MTV crowd, the series is a little silly, and the constant product promotion wears thin. But while you can't help cringing at some of the uncomfortable moments, it's also hard not to chuckle at some of the others.
