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 I always like your work but to be honest is there anyway u can make it to wear there is not that long of a pause after they say something after each person talks its like they pause before the next person says something I feel like I'm watching a play not a show & there is so much laughter when stuff aint funny if u can change those I bet that show would be better but I do praise u for all your hard work

    Tyler, I'm sorry to say I really don't like Love Thy Neighbor that much, there is too much laughing, especially when some of the things they're saying isn't funny. But I really like Mama Hattie and Floyd.

    Another Tyler Perry flop. This program would slightly funnier if they got rid of the little drunk women (she slurs her words and you can't understand her any ways) but Tyler Perry seems to want to stereotype black people and he seems to think old short f** drunk black women are funny. This is why Tyler and Oprah need to get a divorce (I'm assuming they're secretly married or Oprah would've dumped him already).

    I would love to see Danny have more substance to him. Have him do more at his employment at least. He's too lame, I know he loves his mama but he's too attractive to be a mama's boy. Let him get into some kind of life.

    I have to say that I love the direction that "Love Thy Neighbor" is going this season!! The addition of serious acting with the comedy really makes it enjoyable to watch. I like the mystery of the new character "Will" played by Thai Douglas. Who is this brother? I haven't seen him before in any of your shows or movies. A fresh new face and he is really good!! He blends in very well with the original cast. I am hooked and very interested in where this relationship with Linda ends up! NOW!,I remember where I've seen this guy before! He's in a couple of commercials as the ING Grill Dude and the Dad on the Enterprise Car Rental one. Nice Find Tyler !! And keep up the Good work.I am a Big Fan and I love your movies and shows!
