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.

    When I first started watching your show I liked the fact that you are presenting new faces. This show reminds me of when the "House of Payne" started out. Once you get the writers on one accord then the show will definitely mesh. I think you are doing a great job in helping someone else realize their dream. Always remember to put God first.

I still watch them though nbc its u and bc i love Floyd. Thought he was suppose to be getting his own show.

    I am not impress with the Have and The Have Nots. I feel the writers are not tapping into their creative side. There is so much potential for this show. Think about new writers!!!!

      I love LOVE THY NEIGHBOR. Growing up most black families had a HATTIE, voice and all. Just wondering how funny it would be if the WAYANS, were writers on the show. Ralph and Hattie, what a duo.

      i agree the voice is too annoying for me to watch with the sound up. Maybe if she takes it down a notch or two and stop sounding like a cross between tweety bird and tweety birds owner she might sound better.

    what day of the week is "love thy neighbor" showing ? and is it on own?

  • Darnell Stone Mountain, GA.

    Love Thy Neighbor could be funny, but please stop Hattie Mae from talking in that unnatural sounding voice. Can't get through an episode listening to that voice. It is agitating!!! Please call for suggestions. Luv ya!!

    Love thy Neighbor is horrible. I loved every show that TP has produced, but this show is a step down! The lady "Mama" is annoying. I turn it off.

  • Raffa

    When I am feeling down I watch this show and it makes me laugh so hard I forget about my problems for a hour.

      Mable and Hattie Mae need to be in a episode of Love Thy Neighbor together. I would so love to see the interaction between them.

    • tylerperryisawsome Ideal Georgia #1847162

    • tylerperryisawsome Ideal Georgia #1847164

      I think Tyler Perry did a good thing no a great thing putting Love Thy Neighbor on Own I love this show but i wish that it would come on every day.Oh yeah this slipped my mind but you can also call me shauna and nice comment Raffa.

    Love Sam!! Sam is a free spirited urban sexual man who is outrageous and wonderfully funny. Dont ever clog him up. My 2nd favorite is Floyd also funny the Uncle/Brother. On the Have/Have nots - The whole show is very intriguing, havent missed an episode or hanging participle. Loving it!!

    • Linda Bell Guyton United States #1851356

      I love the show the haves and have nots. I hate the show love thy neighbor. It is not funny at all.

  • My two cents Carson, CA

    I am pleasantly pleased with The Haves and Have nots so far I am hooked. However, love thy neighbor is not working for me. It is like watching paint dry...and the laugh track (which is so very irritating) is the only thing laughing. I promise you I have suffered through every episode and have not laughed once. I will always be a fan of Tyler Perry and OWN. Can't win them all. Keep em coming.
