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 ›
The premise is that Tony, playing a slacker & gamer, is magically transported to Herule, the Land of Zelda.
There is a tremendous amount of geeky humor and clear, tongue in cheek ad libing.
It was cool to see Sandeep's creative hand at bringing the characters inhabiting Herule to life.
The series pokes loving fun at the various denizens for all the contrived (and highly neurotic) reasons that that might have been in their positions for Link to attack in the Zelda series.
Tony as Link also lampoons the benefactors of Link for providing help in the way of substandard, crappy wooden and limited use ties when they clearly could do more if they chose to do so.
One caveat, this is adult humor. So, if you are a gaming mom or dad, every scene of every episode might not be appropriate for the youngsters.
The second season was a little bit of a letdown to me. Yes it retains the same actors and the same progressing story (not to mention a higher budget), but I was expecting them to get a lot more mileage out of the 9 or 10 dungeons Link explores in the original LoZ. Unfortunately, a lot of these dungeons are "skipped over" in short, montage-like sequences. This isn't to say that the laughs are decreased as a result, but it's almost like the creators wanted to move onto something else, which is why I'm surprised this includes a third season.
Overall though, this is a group of people you definitely want to support. Not only is this an amusing web series, but you've got the talents of fun actors like Felicia Day lending their talents here. I would like to see more from these guys, which is why I'm supporting this release. And even if you're not sure about it, head over to their website and check out the videos online. Trust me, by the end of the first season you'll be hooked.
My personal highlight is the appearance of Felicia day as a "sexed up fairy" who helps our hero in his quest to win the princess.
