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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
