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.

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

    PLEASE TURN OFF THE LAUGH TRACK SOMETIMES. IT IS SO ANNOYING!!!! Some things the characters say are funny but not EVERYTHING! It really takes away from the show. :(

    I would really like to see Madea show up in the show it will be awsome! they have met up in A Madea's Christmas, and Madea Gets a Job and they were sooo funny who knows what they can do in just one episode in Love Thy Neighbor please Mr. Perry bring the two ride or die friends together LOL

    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 like Love Thy neighbor with the following exceptions: Laugh Track is Fake. Same laugh through out the show. :( Ms. Hattie has Salon nails. Really for a lady her age ?

    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.

    Tyler I'm really emotional right now!!! Cause I commend you for the great work you've done in the past and coming in the future. I just want to know as a Loyal Fan of your work what in God's name were you thinking when you wrote Love thy Neighbor because I don't love and I'm not feeling the love right now.

  • dexter calif

    please don't let the jim carey impersonator take over the show. I stopped watching "Living Colors "when carey over that show

    Mr. Perry, Mr. Perry, Mr. Perry!! I LOVE YOU but I don't love this show. And I want to so badly!! No disrespect to you, but I think your time has been better focused on "The Have and the Have Nots". There are rules to story writing, especially comedy. You have to have your intro, the set-up, story development, the climax and the anti-climax. It's called a story arch. LTN has a story each week. There's no REAL set-up and definitely few climaxes and anti-climaxes. I get to the end of episodes and the credits are running and I'm thinking, "What? It's over? Where were the big laughs? Where was the story arch? The ending? For example, "Love Thy Baby" - What would have been funny is if Miss Hattie had been forced to take care of the baby for the day! And Marianna just comes and picks up the baby and leaves?! Really?! Why not have the mother come back for her baby? What happened to the baby? The baby's mother? Mr. Brown and Madea should have shown up at Miss Hattie's birthday party! I love Miss Hattie, Floyd and Sam, even if he's awfully sleazy! Marianna's not bad either. The rest of the cast, I don't know.... OK, I could go on and on for some time. If OWN is renewing this show, I'm going to have to write you some scripts. Where do I send them. I'm serious! I've worked in and taught theatre in my lifetime. I've even written a play or two. Don't worry, Tyler! I'm on it! I've got your back!! Scripts are on their way!!
