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 an awful show. It's not funny at all, half the time you can't understand what Ms. Hattie is saying . The young man that plays Danny Linda's son acts retarted and the other cast members are just awful. when is for better or worse coming back on. Now that's a really good show. I hope it will be back on soon, please don't tell me that love thy neighbor has replaced it....

      To me she's a female Mr. Brown (lol). If you don't like show STOP watching duh!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Thanks Gloria, I too think this show is horrible. I try very hard to watch and I find Ms Hattie unable to hear her lines. Danny seems g** and too babyish yet trying to be macho??? His friend, Drew and the uncle are the only ones that seem to carry the show. The story line with Linda seems a little interesting. Hopefully she will wind up with the guy with the two kids. I do hope it gets better. The laugh tracks for this show is so unbearable!!! I honestly don't see how others are finding this show all that Funny!!!

    Mr. Perry, I have the utmost respect for you and your work. Love Thy Neighbor is just not funny. I love Hattie and Floyd, but the rest of the characters are not memorable. You need better casting and new writing. The Haves and the Have Nots on the other hand is supberbly done. I can't wait to catch a new episode every week. It it just that good. You are talented, bold, innovative and brilliant. You have what it takes the make a great sitcom. Please brainstrom it, regroup and come out swinging with a new, better, hilarious, gutrenching sitcom. I'm rooting for you. I declare even greater projects shall come forth from you." Why? Because you Tyler Perry are one of the sons of the "Most High God." You are destined for continued greatness. Remeber, You are blessed and highly favored.

    Mr.Perry I can't wait to watch the new love thy neighbor tonight 2-19-14 keep up the good work me and my grandmother laugh so hard especially at Ms.Hattie thank you keep up the good work


    Time, money, and energy spent on this nonsense (LOVE THY NEIGHBOR) would be better directed toward creating more episodes, and longer seasons of the epic hit THE HAVES AND HAVE NOTS. If ANY show should have "ONLY THREE EPISODES LEFT" it should be LTN NOT THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS!

      I am so glad to hear someone else believes "Love Thy Neighbor" is a complete waste of time. I want to see the pictures Tyler Perry has of Oprah Winfrey. There can be no other reason Tyler Perry is able to produce these horrible shows on OWN. All three shows with "Tyler Perry's" name attached are probably the worst shows on TV. The problem is amplified by the fact we have to watch the million commercials for these stupid programs. If anyone important is reading these emails please have an intervention with Tyler, convince him he should go paint homes for a living, and leave sitcoms to people with talent.

    Hate it!

    Hello, I am truly enjoying show Love Thy Neighbor. I have read some of the comments about the show, Hattie voice to me is just right, where I grew up in the fifties there were plenty of bossy women, they could not help it because of the role they had to do raising a family without a man and had to be strong to keep children in place and out of trouble. Our children had to be spoken to like that, it was the only language they understood in those days and it got through to them, Hattie is playing her role just right and her voice should not change. The people that watch this show is probably not from the old school because this was the way it was. All my friends in NJ and here in SC love, love, this show and all the rest of them. Keep up the good work it is truly a joy watching your shows.

    I love the show , But I think Linda's son is too old to act the way he does, It makes him look slow. Everyone else I love to watch. Tyler you need to make his character more mature.
