Editorial Reviews

Review

Crass, foul-mouthed and very raunchy, THE LEGEND OF NEIL is also one funny series geeks and nerds everywhere will want to check out. Recommended! --KDVR (Fox Denver, Colorado)

The Legend of Neil is legendary in the fact that its cheapness and awfulness helps make it so damn charming and hilarious that you re drenched in nostalgic glee. --Next Projection

Product Description

Beer-guzzling slacker Neil Grimsley accidentally finds a code that sucks him into the fantasy video game The Legend of Zelda. Neil is immediately charged with the task of defeating the evil Lord Gannon and saving Princess Zelda, armed with nothing but a shoddy wooden sword and a gigantic hangover.

Created and directed by Sandeep Parikh (The Guild, Community), THE LEGEND OF NEIL follows our reluctant hero (Tony Janning, The Temp Life, Machinima s Prank Lab) as he traverses the world of Hyrule encountering sarcastic wizard mentors (Mike Rose, The Guild), sex-starved fairies (Felicia Day, The Guild, Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog), half-horse dance crews (Robert Hoffman, Step Up 2), whiny giants (comedians The Sklar Brothers) and much more!

This unrated DVD contains all three seasons of Comedy Central's smash hit web series and includes never-before-seen bonus footage including a behind-the-scenes featurette with insider tips on how to make your own web series!

DVD is Region-Free.

No doubt you've heard of Comedy Central? Back in 2008, Comedy Central launched THE LEGEND OF NEIL online. Quickly, it went viral, and it became an internet sensation with over 10 million views. If you never heard of it and were hoping for the chance to explore it further, there will never be a better opportunity than this DVD release by Flatiron Film Company.

(Warning: the following review will contain spoilers for the purposes of discussing plot and characters. If you're the kind of happy reader who prefers living your life sheltered from all that is good and noble, then feel free to skip down to the last two paragraphs. Otherwise, buckle up and read on.)

Neil (played by Tony Janning) is your typical slacker. He works at the family-run gas station, but, in his free time, he's looked on that original Nintendo staple, "The Legend of Zelda." While engaging in some deviant behavior while ensconced in the game, Neil is unwittingly sucked into the world of Hyrule. Reluctantly, he accepts the guidance and advice of Old Man (Mike Rose) and, later, his twin Ooooold Man (also Rose) to rescue the Princess Zelda (Angie Hill). Along the way, he'll make plenty of friends and enemies, reluctantly rising to challenge the evil lord Ganon (Scott Chernoff) and his minion of questionable sexuality, Wizrobe (Eric Acosta).

For my tastes, THE LEGEND OF NEIL is a delight. It's an inspired yet mildly sardonic look into one merry world that's not too awfully far away from our own. The characters are all a bit nutty, shackled with their own quirks and misgivings, be it Neil wanting to prove himself while still having a beer or Old Man restlessly prattling on with his endless asides and quips about Neil's inattentiveness.

Remember a few years ago when it suddenly became fashionable to make video game parodies like it was no one's business? Meet the series that inspired them all and continues to kick their butt, The Legend of Neil. Packed full with unbridled imagination, crass and (sometimes risky!) humor, a stellar cast and even better direction, and you have an indulgently low brow comedy that will make you laugh again and again. And watch out particularly for the awesome MUSICAL episode!

This is a series that I regularly return to for some great laughs. If you played the original Legend of Zelda, you will crack up at all the parodies, and the "embellishments" that fill in some of the gaps of the story, necessary or otherwise. You'll learn how the faerie heals Link, and more about Moblin anatomy than you ever wanted to know.

I felt that the first 3 or so episodes of Season 1 start out fairly rough, but the series quickly gains steam and the production quality improves significantly. Don't let the juvenile intro turn you off; as long as you're still okay with dirty humor, it will get better--much better.

You'll see a lot of familiar actors from The Guild and some other web series / podcasts (with many great performances), but TLoN has its own unique brand of humor. I'm not sure how women will react to the misogynist humor (really -- women serve pretty much one purpose in the series), but it's clearly done from Average Joe Neil's perspective.

I feel that younger audiences will really enjoy this series, but immature adults in their 30's such as myself will get the most out of it. The references are really tailored toward that demographic.

I definitely recommend this series, but make sure to keep watching through the first four episodes or so when it really gets legs.

Kill Link!

"The Legend of Neil" is a delightfully profane and madcap web series courtesy of Comedy Central and some of the creative forces behind "The Guild." Although hysterically cheap looking (that's part of its charm and it acknowledges the fact at every opportunity), the series actually works quite well. While drug use is not a prominent theme, it plays like a quintessential stoner comedy. Our slacker hero Neil auto-erotic asphyxiates himself into the video game "The Legend of Zelda." His adventures in this wondrous new land expertly skewer the game in a spot-on way. It's been years since I've played the original Zelda, but the series brought back such terrific memories of the game's silliness and strengths. Unapologetically profane, Neil and his crew balance sweetness (that's a strange word, maybe it's innocence) and shock value surprisingly well.

The Complete Series DVD Collection has all three seasons of "The Legend of Neil." As these are web episodes, each of the 20 segments is only a few minutes long so an entire season can be viewed in less than an hour. I watched it in three sittings as the entire presentation comes in at slightly over 2 1/2 hours. The set itself is two discs. The first disc has all the three seasons plus associated bonus interviews for each episode. The second disc is loaded with some amusing extras as well. There are 6 mini-sodes, a music video, gag reels, behind-the-scenes footage, scripts, commentary, galleries and a featurette about how to make your own web series. When we started watching "Neil," one of my friends commented that they had made it "with our budget" so we really liked this feature!

If you are a fan of video games (or Zelda in particular), this is a must-see as long as you appreciate rude and crude humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super crude, super funny, plus the mandatory excellent musical episode
It's terribly crude and terribly funny. I wasn't even a fan of the Legend of Zelda or a Nintendo generation kid, and I usually prefer my comedy less raw. Read more

Discs worked perfectly! Show is hilarious, though in my opinion, not for children under 13... Language, sexual content, innuendos, and violence.
