Years On: 1989
Did It Work? We'll give points for sticking with the game's main storyline: Link, Zelda, Triforces, Ganon, the fate of Hyrule, etc. But we also gotta levy demerits for Link being a smartass Han Solo ripoff. How many times are we supposed to believe a pixie-ish eunuch who sounds like a surfer every time he says "Well, excuuuuuuse me, princess!"? Apparently 29 times, since that's how many times he crammed that tired bullshit into 13 episodes before the show went out like an octorok.
