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.

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

By Edward L Zimmerman TOP 1000 REVIEWER on November 29, 2012
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.

The team of Tony Janning (Actor), Felicia Day (Actor), and Sandeep Parikh (Director) are back together again!

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.

Well done!

In service,

Rich

I ordered this the other day because I have been eagerly awaiting its release on DVD. While not the highest quality show in terms of budget, you'll find lots of laughs to be had with it otherwise. I've only seen the first couple of seasons, so the third season does have me interested in what I have missed. The first season, while short, has some of the most hilarious sequences between old school Zelda characters that I've ever seen. Even though most of this show is based around the original Legend of Zelda game on the NES, don't be afraid if you've never played the game. This show is entertaining enough to please fans of all kinds.

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.

No need to be a "Legend of Zelda" fan to enjoy this web show. The show makes fun of the commmon game conventions (quests, puzzles, end of level battles etc.) which can found in many of the games of this era, so thats why you don't need to be a "Zelda" fan. The raw language, suggestive sexual themes, really makes this one for the adults.

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.

Brilliant. Everything compiled and ready to go instead of crappy internet versions, out of order and redirected. If you enjoyed the original Zelda game (especially as a depraved teen) and want to see how other depraved kids viewed this game turned "real", look no further. Felicia Day as a perverted sex-crazed fairy... how can you resist that?
