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.

    The only characters, I like is, Floyd, Hattie Mae,Linda. The worst character in the show is Drew. I think, Andre Hall need to take acting classes are choose s diffefent career.Please add some very funny kids to the show.It would be nice to add a veteran actor to play along Floyd.

  • Jackie

    Please replaced Danny-Andre Hall. He cannot act. think if you add kids to the show it would be funnier and you would get a more viewers.

    I love the show,but there are some things I wishedwould be changed. Danny,Andre Hall can't act. He is boring and not funny at all. He cannot act, he seem too stiff I think if you add a couple of least one kid or two to the show for example mama Hattie realative become sick and need someone to take care of the kids. She becomes relucted at first buñut learns she csn get paid from the state for taking care of the kids.

    Oh and by the way to the people who are horribly cirtisizing this show DON'T WATCH IT!! your obviously wasting your time, we don't care if you don't like it either way u like it or not its still a popular show as you can see the episodes are getting funnier each episode well to me and the people who actually enjoy it but insteas of coming on here talking mess about it how bout you talk about a show that you actually like instead of wasting your life talking ,typing and blogging or doing what ever you guys do about the show horribly. GOD BLESS TYLER LOOOVEE LOVE THY NEIGHBOR!!

    I love the Haves and the Have nots and Love Thy neighbor, people keep saying oh Hattie's voice is annoying or the show isn't that good but i really disagree. Mama Hatties voice is very funny and tell you the truth everyone has a different type of humor so obviously some people will think its funny and some people might not dont stop what your doing and keep this show up I look foward to these episodes everyday seeing my two favorites Hattie anf Flloyed always keeps me up but mabey you should tone it down a little on the laugh track it seems a bit too much. LOVE YOU TYLER :D

    This is not Tyler's best work it doesn't even keep my interest. The actors are awful. Patrice Lovely (Hattie) and William (Floyd) are the only 2 actors worth keeping. Get rid of the rest and start over. The rest are horrible the actress who plays Drew acts as if she studied Under Erkle from Family Matters, the who plays Sam is not authentic he acts like a wanna be Jim Carey from his In Living Color days. The actress who plays Linda is boring! I can't even think of what to say about the actor who plays Danny except he can't act. I'm so disappointed.

    I would like to say I really Love this show and I want You to know that Mr. Tyler Perry you are a very gifted and talentef man God Bless You!

    As a white woman who admits Tyler Perry teaches and preaches a fine message. Family and God. That life is not about self.The world needs many more Christian directors like him. I find my self wondering why a man at the top in charge of trying to keep MLK dream alive equal rights for all would even consider having the only white role on Love Thy Neighbor portrayed as a total slim ball that no race of people world wide would be proud of.

    I greatly disliked this weeks 2 episodes (Marianna begins/Sam believes girl is dead). Neither was funny ! The laugh track is annoying. Hattie's voice needs to be more natural. The young people on the show are boring most of the time! This show needs an overhaul. Perry needs to add new people to the writing, producing, and directing of this show.

      I agree with this comment the young people on the show really are boring. And also is Danny ever gonna date/ have a life. I love the show but am getting bored. Floyd and Hattie are the funniest. You need a more compatible cast with them....

  • NICHELLE Barbados

    Hi just want to say that i love all of the new shows .Love thy neighbour. For better or worse and . These always make me laugh.

  • Rick Durham, NC

    This show is... AWFUL!! If the producers took away the laugh track, no one in the studio, including the actors themselves, would know where the funny parts are. The feeble attempts at humor, either with witless dialog or prolonged stares, leave my jaw agape and make me wonder which staff writer's 7th grader proposed that scene. The actors can do nothing to improve things as it appears the director is satisfied with the slow pace turning a half hour sitcom into 30 agonizing minutes in the dentist's chair. Perhaps a more rapid fire delivery of the lines would help (it sure couldn't hurt). I appreciate the attempt to get young actors an opportunity to work but that does not offset the pain inflicted on the audience.

      I am very disappointed with the new comedy "love thy neighbor" by Tyler Perry also. I have watched all of the episodes so far and none had made me truly laugh. I loved "the Paynes" and "the Browns" shows and this show is not even close to those. Sorry but I feel you lost this viewer. As far as the "Have and have nots" I didn't care for it since the beginning and never watched it. The name "Tyler Perry" means good clean laughter and I don't feel that for either of these shows.
