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 have to find a costume for the Halloween Party I attend yearly. This year I wanted something different and nothing no one would think of. So, because of your shows and plays I decided to go as my girl Hattie Mae. This character always have me on the floor laughing, but when she is giving some knowledge it is ALWAYS the truth and on point. Keep of the good work Tyler!!!

      Why is it that some people cant understand that mimicry is a great form of flattery. I see myself in momma hattie, my mom and my grandmother.. Its not insulting. It's plain and simply funny. I enjoy documentaries, I take my black history quite seriously also. THIS IS A COMEDY. Just enjoy it and move on. geez

    This week's episodes with Danny getting his love was hilarious. This is the first time in a long time, I've laughed so hard. But Linda needs to "cut that apron string". Lol

    The "Troy" series is by far my favorite. I'm so happy Danny is finally acting like a MAN!!!!!!!! I love this show and I hope Tyler Perry keeps making it and letting Danny act like a man. It's so much better than when he acts like a sissy. Tyler needs to let Danny have a girlfriend. Thank you Tyler. As I said, by far this episode is my FAVORITE. I've watched it 5x already.
