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.

    Tyler Perry, I am really enjoying your latest show, "The Haves and the Have Nots" and I must say I believe it is your BEST work to date . The show takes viewers on a whirlwind roller coaster of emotions all the while teaching them life lessons through each character that they can use in their own lives. I am really looking forward to all that this show will unfold and how much it will continue to grow. On the contrary, "Love Thy Neighbor" is some of your WORST work to date. If you don't have it already, you really need some honest friends in your corner to tell you the truth even when you do NOT want to hear it. If you had anyone on your staff, in your friend circle, or family that told you "Love Thy Neighbor" is a good show, you need to FIRE them from your life. The show lacks every and I mean EVERY necessary ingredient essential to being a good comedy: REAL COMEDY for one (the comedy is absolutely HORRIBLE), it lacks a connection with each of the characters (the acting seems forced; none of it seems natural or realistic), and most importantly, it lacks any life lessons or strong themes that can be taken away. I was blown away at how HORRIBLE the show was when I watched the first 5 or so episodes because I couldn't compare it to ANY OF YOUR PREVIOUS WORK. I think once the shows finishes airing, you need to either allow someone else to take over the show by rewriting, rearranging, and reforming these characters to be something that is believable in front of camera. The whole direction of the show needs to change or it should just be cancelled. I have NEVER saw you put out something SO HORRIBLE. However, I am a writer Mr. Perry. I have written several plays, scripts for school theaters, and churches in my local community throughout Houston, TX and I believe I could take over this show and help you get it to where it could be pleasing to your fans. I would love to hear from you! Best wishes in your continued success and we appreciate you for giving us a platform on your website to voice our HONEST opinions about your work. God bless you! Gregg

    Now, Mr. Perry I will support anything you do, but this show is driving me crazy, now where do I start? Ms. Hatte Mae I love, I think she is funny and I love her voice and what comes out of her mouth, lol, Floyd I love and I think he and Hattie timing is great. Ok how do I put this without putting down new actors but I'm trying to a viewer to this show, Pls DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT DANNY HIS VOICE I CAN'T STAND AND HIS CHARACTER I CAN'T STAND, HE'S JUST AN POOR EXCUSE FOR A YOUNG STRONG BLACK MAN , DON'T UNDERSTAND HIS CHARACTER AT ALL! MAN-UP FOR GOD SAKE! Now LINDA not to bad but pls act your age not a 10yr. old pls you are killing me and I'm trying so hard to like your character just not connecting at all. Now SAM I think is funny and has been since the first episode keep up the good work. (ho) lol. And the lastest character that was added the boss MARRINA I like she appears to have some acting skills because she just shows good timing. I think young black lady sorry I don't remeber her name , her character good be better if her lines were better, she's not to bad. It's unfortunate she has shown interest in Danny , Danny have said he's not gay, REALLY! YOU CAN'T TELL, HE MAKES ME WHAT TO THROW UP, HIS VOICE , EVERYTHING ABOUT HIS CHARACTER I CAN'T STAND, AND HE'S SUCH A CUTIE TO LOOK AT AS LONG AS HE IS SEEN NOT HEARD, PLS DO SOMETHING ABOUT HIM OR GET RID OF HIM OR YOU WILL BE GETTING RID OF ME! AND HATE TO LEAVE BECAUSE I LOVE FLOYD AND HATTIE AND CAN TOLERATE EVERYBODY BUT DANNY ! LINDA THE VERDICT IS STILL OUT ON YOU! MR.PERRY I KNOW YOU CAN'T PLS EVERYBODY BUT I'VE MENTION THIS SHOW TO SOME CO-WORKERS AND MANY SAY THEY DON'T WATCH BECAUSE OF DANNY AND IT'S NOT FUNNY WELL I DON'T AGREE IT'S NOT TOTALLY FUNNY ALL 3O BUT IT HAS STRONG MOMENTS! PLS FIND ANOTHER SHOW FOR DANNY! AND FOR HATTIE'S BIRTHDAY PARTY IT WOULD HAVE BEEN FUNNY IF CURTIS OR MR.BROWN WOULD HAVE SHOWED UP AS HER OLD FRIENDS JUST A THOUGHT. Mr. Perry I'm trying to support this one, pls help me with this one. Be bless always!

    I love Tyler's work. I enjoy watching the Haves'. It is a wonderful drama; however, Love thy Neighbor is okay. I don't think that it will hold my attention to long because the cast does not support the main characters. I agree that I watch it to support Tyler and Own! I miss House of Payne; there was a moral to the story and my children learn a life lesson from it; it was the modern day Cosby show. Which is what our black families and children need more of because it show a positive side and teach moral lessons.

    Please change the cast so, I can laugh again, like I did when I watched the Browns,and Paynrs except for:Floyd, Hattie Mae,Marianna, and maybe Linda,but the rest of the cast is horrible. Cont

  • Vickie Memphis, tn

    On Love Thy Neighbor, the canned laughter is nerve racking. Everything is not funny. So please tone it down. The people who portray Danny, Drew and Sam cannot act, especially Danny. They are really boring. Hattie and Floyd are my favorite characters. Some revamping needs to be done to improve this show.

  • BreAnna E. Zachary, La

    Can you PLEASE make it possible to watch full episodes of The Haves and the Have Nots and Love Thy Neighbor online? Sometimes I can't watch the shows on their original air date and they don't re-air throughout the week.
