Description:

Tyler Perry’s Love Thy Neighbor, the new situation comedy by writer and director Tyler Perry is a wonderfully fresh show about a middle class family, and their daily joys, struggles, triumphs, and fumbles. Hattie Mae Love (Patrice Lovely) lives in the simple home that she and one of her husbands bought some time ago. Linda (Kendra C. Johnson) her daughter, splits her time between Hattie’s home and the apartment she sometimes shares with her on-again off-again husband, Lionel. Danny (Andre Hall), Linda’s son, is his mother’s pride and joy. He is young, handsome, smart, and looking for a job. After graduating from college, Danny finds himself on his grandmother Hattie Mae’s sofa. Floyd (Palmer Williams, Jr.), the uncle, through his late brother’s marriage to Hattie Mae, is an ever-present thorn in the family’s side. Like old luggage, they can never seem to get rid of him.

In the first season of this comic tale, Hattie Mae has had enough of grown people living in her house. She puts her foot down and shows the toughest love there is by sending Linda and Danny to the door. Danny moves in with his friend Sam, and Linda eventually helps out down at Hattie Mae’s Love Train Diner.

The Love Train is an old locomotive car converted to a diner that serves up all of Hattie Mae’s old recipes. It is the neighborhood hang out spot that, along with great food, serves up a whole lot of fun. As Linda and Floyd commit to help Hattie Mae with the family business, blessings abound. Soon the customers multiply, and so do the laughs, the drama, and the love of a very comical family.

With the help of Danny’s new roommate Sam (Jonathan Chase), Danny soon lands a job at an internet design firm. Danny proves to be a star there. However living and working with Sam, a 30-year-old who is trapped in his teens, will prove to be more of a nightmare than Danny could ever imagine. As the parties get wilder, the women get crazier, and Danny’s young life becomes a humorous tale of dodging fanatical friends, and eccentric family members.

Nevertheless, Danny begins to excel at his new position when the Chicago office sends the beautiful Marianna to take over as boss of the Atlanta office. Marianna quickly falls in love with Danny’s work ethic and virtuous character. As a close knit team and family, the young twenty & thirty something’s embark on a number of adventures that go along with being young professionals in a contemporary & technical society.

All in all, Tyler Perry’s Love Thy Neighbor is a collection of stories that warm the heart, provoke thought, and always serves up a heap of laughs. Through all the changes, there is one constant, and that is the universal language called Love. It’s all about love.

    The show is too over-the-top with comedic situations that lack true humor. The characters are too extreme in their roles as momma's boy (Danny) and the freak-deaky player (Sam). I understand that it is making a statement about things that are prevalent in families but the "extremes" of the characters cause it to lose its effect. The best parts of the show is when you come to the serious note when Hattie drops a little wisdom showing that she actually cares...but those moments are short-lived. I am still on the fence about Linda's character, but thus far she just comes across as unnecessary to the show and its progression. Poor Drew just comes across really insecure and desperate...annoyingly so. I've heard comments on the OWN commercials that this is the funniest show produced by your company, but nothing will ever top the comedic timing of David Mann as Mr. Brown. That inspired real laughs... real hilarity because you think of a neighbor or family member who really does bungle words and dress in a style of their own. Tone Sam down and take away some of Danny's silly, foolish, child-like behavior that makes his character seem weak and like a trifle. Otherwise, many props to you and your endeavors.

    This is the absolute worse endeavor thus far. Too slapstick, too silly and not funny. Not too late to revamp.

    I hate the laugh track!Danny acts gay. Drew is crazy. It's not really all that funny. Linda is boring. Sam is taking over the show and he's not that funny. Please rethink this show. I do love Patrice Lovely, but I enjoyed her more in Madea Gets a Job. She was funnier then.

    The actors on this show with the exception of Floyd and Ms. Hattie are Bad!!! Should re-write and try again or pull the show.

    I love Tyler Perry and I have all of his plays and movies on DVD. But this show is not pleasing to me. The younger cast members are the poorest actor I have ever seen. Drew, Danny, and Sam need to lighten up on the factual expressions and the men need to stop acting like women. I can only watch the show when there isn’t a lot of focus on those three. I hope there will be some change to the acting and if not this will go down as the worse program sitcom I have ever watched. Patrice and Walter are the best actors in the program. If it wasn’t for Hattie I would have stopped watching from the second episode.
