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.

    Please take the word "man" out of everyone's script. It sounds so dumb.

    I love "Love Thy Neighbor" but due to my work schedule I am not able to watch it when it airs. I can't seem to find a way to catch up on old episodes, because they don't show it On Demand and Hulu doesn't have the more recent seasons and episodes. I also tried to watch it on Oprah.com but that site only show bits and pieces of episodes. Tyler Perry please make your shows available to be watched after they air, it would mean so much!!!

      AMEN!!! I'm trying to find the last episode online now (2/4/15 airing). I really didn't want to wait until Wednesday of next week. This is ludicrous!!!!!!

  • Gwendolyn Jordan North Carolina

    The first season was so much better than the second from the script standpoint! This season it is common for an entire episode to be comprised of useless back and forth banter that accomplishes nothing! I hope the writers improve upon this soon.

      I AGREE 100%. I was do frustrated last night. The entire episode went nowhere. Just babbling . I felt like yelling....spit it out already !!! Just awful.

    I love your shows. Your characters are all so unique and Love Thy Neighbor is sheer genius with bringing Floyd and Hattie together in one show, never a dull moment full of laughs. I am a fan of all of your plays and movies, I own all of them. One question I had was why did you have Hattie and Floyd married in," I don't want to do wrong" but Hattie being married to Floyd's brother in the current show "Love Thy Neighbor? " I will continue to support your efforts to bring a godly themed show with real life situations to people of all ethnicities. thank you for your imagination and willingness to persevere when it was not the easiest situation for you personally. Thank you to all of your characters whether they are in your tv shows, plays or movies as they all are so talented in their acting and vocally. When God is in the midst it will always succeed far above anyone's expectations. God bless you and your entire acting and production teams!

    I really like this show BUT the story line totally doesn't make sense. The finale ended w/her telling them she was pregnant, Phillip coming in w/another woman saying he moved on. How does it pick up w/him dating her (Linda) when she said she didn't want to see him and he was dating a woman that lived in the same building with Danny and Sam? That made zero sense too me. Something was totally off. While I love everything you do Tyler I support 100% (except for better or worse I can't get into it) the writing is off. The episode where Linda got drunk and woke up in Phillip's bed, how is the same hill you gonna have sex and still have on your stocking and spanx? That made zero sense. She could have at least woke up and wrapped herself in the sheet to be more believable. I didn't think anything happened between them because of how she was dressed. Gotta work on those little things like that. But I will continue to watch because I do like the show and mama Hattie is hilarious. Oh.....can Danny PLEASE stop being so airhead(ish)?

  • Nicole United States

    Did I miss something? I thought Linda found out she was pregnant and was confronting Phillip. Where did this episode, Sarah, come from. I thought there was supposed to be a Madea cameo. I'm pretty sure that was the commercial that was airing. Confused....
