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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Hey wassup Mr Perry. I am an admirer of Kendra C Johnson and I think she is the bomb. I don't know if she single but if she is I would love to get to know her. She is just the beez knees... anyway I am a fan and I love the show!! keep them coming.

    My first impression of "Love They Neighbor" when I first saw the previews was not positive. I think the acting can be a bit more realistic. Somehow I kept watching the episodes and inspite of the acting, the show is quite entertaining and funny as the d******* It took a new life. The actors are truly comical with their lines and the mother is hilarious with her down in the hood antics. You never know what Ms. Hattie is going to say next. I like that. Her character reminds me of one of my characters I wrote about some years ago. Keep up the good work people. Sincerely, Cherrrie

    Can I audition for a show . I need something to do hit me up T.P CHASIN A DREAM HERE .

    I think that Linda is Philip's one true love but I think that Linda doesn't deserve to feel like that. If Philip goes out on another date put Cheryl Pepsii Riley in it because Linda would get very jealous because she is beautiful
