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.

    Love Thy Neighbor is funny all away round. i enjoy all the actors, they compliment each other. Patrice Lovely is my best, i just love her in this roll, and love to hear her say(Ain't That Nice). Love Thy Neighbor is medicine. When you are feeling down, or have had a bad day, just watch the show, and watch your mood change for the better. Thanks Tyler and keep them coming. By the way, when is the next stage play coming to Fayetteville, nc

    Let Phillip date a woman about the size of Linda or larger. Linda is so insecure.I just do not know of women like her in this day and age. Linda get a backbone. You are the Queen. Let her go to talk with Steve Harvey before she lose this chance with a man like Phillip. I do not want her to meet another Will.Alot of them are out here too. Just waiting to run their game.

      I agree. This will be a great platform to show how a full figure lady can have a good man like anyone else. The process will probable take another session. Maybe a little Steve Harvey and Iyanla Vanzant clips mix with moma Hattie would help many.

    I looked at the show last night. Linda is not acting and reacting like a grown woman. Is she pregnant? Being that she still had her panty hose on I did not think they actually had sex.I didn't think that Phillip would want her drunk. A woman knows if she had sex so I am not fully understanding because of my unanswered questions.Can anyone reply back to me your thoughts?

      Panty hoses do get hoses.....He said she was touching and rubbing, and the way she was pulling on him anything can happen. Don't she went home with no panties on....

    I started watching the show just as Linda and Philip's connection became apparent. I love this storyline. Yet it could be tightened up a bit. I am not sure what is the purpose of Sam. The things he says sometimes don't make sense and leaves me wondering. Although the other characters are great. Looking forward to seeing what happens with Linda and Philip.

    I have tried to enjoy this show like all the rest but it's not funny at all. It's actually very boring to watch and I'm a very big fan of Tyler shows. The acting is terrible to watch. I miss the shows like Meet the brown's and House of payne they are cool to watch any day. We need more funny shows like that.

  • Beverly Texas

    I love this show very much but have not been able to watch it. So I was wondering if you have the series on DVD that I can purchase and watch as much as I want.

  • Tee Richmond, Va 23223

    I love this show. I hope you will let Linda & Phillip become a couple and later huband & wife. Linda is insecure and Phillis is good for her. He is all man. Where can I get me a Phillip? I too am celibrate and praying for my soul mate. I am so tired of getting the wrong man. I am not longer in that game.

Take a bow Tyler Perry and may God continue to bless you richly! I wish i could have the blessed opportunity to cast in one of your shows! Keep up the good work and bring Phillip and Linda back together again!!! Love yall!!

  • Veronica Brooks Zachary, Louisiana

    I am sooooo team Linda and Phillip. I'm a full-figured woman and this storyline has my acting like a crackhead trying to get the next fix. I have so many possible ideas about the Linda and Phillip characters.
