The Legend of Neil is a raunchy and irreverent web series that was later picked up by Comedy Partners for television broadcast. The show stars Robert Hoffman as Neil, a slacker who spends most of his time playing video games and masturbating. One day, while playing the classic NES game, The Legend of Zelda, Neil finds himself sucked into the game world and trapped there. With the help of a fairy named Tink (Felicia Day), Neil sets out on an adventure to defeat Ganon and find a way back to the real world.

The show is full of crude humor, sex jokes, and pop culture references that will leave any gamer laughing out loud. From Neil's encounters with the scantily clad Fairy Queen to his run-ins with a pot-smoking Gandalf, the show takes a decidedly adult approach to the classic Legend of Zelda story.

The production values on the show are surprisingly high given its humble origins as a web series. The special effects are impressive, particularly in the show's numerous fight scenes. The show also benefits from a great soundtrack, which includes a number of classic video game themes reimagined in new and hilarious ways.

One of the standout performances on the show comes from Felicia Day, who brings both humor and heart to the role of Tink. Despite her diminutive size, Tink is a badass fairy who's not afraid to kick some ass when necessary. Day's performance is particularly impressive given that she spends much of her time on the show interacting with a green screen and imaginary creatures.

Robert Hoffman is also great in the lead role of Neil. He brings a likable slacker charm to the character that makes him easy to root for despite his numerous flaws. Neil is not exactly the hero you would expect to save Hyrule, but somehow Hoffman makes it work.

In addition to Day and Hoffman, the show also features a number of great supporting performances. Mike Rose, in particular, is hilarious as the voice of Ganon. He brings a over-the-top campiness to the role that perfectly fits with the show's tone.

Overall, The Legend of Neil is a hilarious and irreverent take on the classic Legend of Zelda story. The show is full of great performances, impressive special effects, and a killer soundtrack. It's not for the faint of heart, but if you're a gamer who appreciates dirty humor and pop culture references, this show is an absolute must-see.

The Legend of Neil is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on December 4, 2012.
