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!

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 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 series is excellent and by itself I would give it 5 stars, but the DVD could have been improved. So I gave it 4 stars.
The DVD is of the same quality as the original streaming videos were. Which is okay, but not great. On a large screen you will notice the video quality is not as good as a normal DVD. Also each "episode" is only 5 to 10 minutes and each one has an intro and credits. So a significant amount of the total run-time is seeing the same credits over and over again.
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.
Find some gaming buddies who haven't seen it yet and re-watch -- there are great visual gags you dont notice the first time through.
(Old post) Not sure if the DVD works (it's a gift), but item is exactly what I was looking for.
