They've been doing LON for a little while now and I'm surprised to find
no comments on it. Granted, it doesn't have the name Joss Wheadon and
the fame of Nathan Fillion or Neil Patrick Harris in "Doctor Horribles
Sing Along Blog" but it's every bit as funny. Considering the low
budget nature of LON the production values are amazing and when the
effects or the setting is obviously low budget it serves the joke and
delivers the laugh.
The series was created by Sandeep Parikh who is a director, some-times
actor and musician. The man is a threat on several levels and I hope he
ends up doing bigger and better things. This guy could very well be the
next Mike Judge if given the chance and he has a good start already.
The actor playing Link / Neil is Tony Janning who is incredibly funny
as the reluctant hero who accidentally gets sucked into the world of
The Legend Of Zelda (first game).
The rest of the cast is just as funny but obviously Tony Janning is the
star here and I hope like the rest of the cast he gets the recognition
he deserves. I want to site one other cast member in this series is
Eric Acosta who plays Wizrobe. He steals the scene every time he is on
screen which are mostly with Gannon. He reminds of a happier version of
Ben Stiller and just as funny.
Over all this small web based series is incredibly funny and despite
the fact that the episodes are generally under four minutes they manage
to pack every moment with jokes. Before I wrap up my interview I know
mentioned Joss Wheadon's "Doctor Horrible" and it is funny but LON did
it's own musical episode this second season. Felicia Day who was in
"Doctor Horrible" is also the nymph fairy in LON. This is not intended
as a spoiler but at the beginning of the musical episode when a male
fairy tries to get her to sing she says "Well, I'm not really into
online musicals" That's a very funny line considering what she had done
Bottom line, I encourage everyone to check out this series because it
will make you laugh every time.
