Show Summary

ABC's The Neighbors follows the story of Debbie (Jami Gertz) and Marty Weaver (Lenny Venito) who have recently moved with their three kids to Hidden Hills, a gated community with its own golf course. It's an exclusive New Jersey community that hasn't had a house come on the market in 10 years. They soon discover that the neighbors are ... a little odd. Larry Bird (Simon Templeman) introduces himself as "leader" of this little community with wife, Jackie Joyner-Kersee (Toks Olagundoye), and their two sons, Dick Butkus and Reggie Jackson. It seems everyone in the neighborhood is named after famous athletes. Pretty soon, though, the secret's out, and the Weavers learn that the whole community is made up of aliens from the planet Zabvron. The Zabvronians have been waiting for instructions from back home for the past 10 years and this is their first encounter having humans live amongst them. Although hesitant at first, the Weavers decide the house is a dream come true so they'll stay and help the aliens adapt to life on earth. The Weavers and the aliens soon discover that the struggles of everyday life are intergalactic and they're more alike than different.

  • Best campy sit-com since Gilligan's Island

    I love the writing in this show and the clean cut family values. It is nice to go through a whole show without blatant references to someone's genitals, recent bathroom break, last night's one night stand or which drugs they prefer for getting high. You can bet this one won't last long in the moral cesspool of Hollywood. Too bad for the wonderful actors. The decline of our civilization is becoming a freefall.moreless
  • Reunite Reggie and Amber and stop the sadness on this comedy

    5.0
    I really liked this, as a fun comedy with a quality cast when it first started, but now it is more sad than funny. Reggie Jackson and Amber need to get back together. If it doesn't happen in one more episode or so, then I'm a former "Neighbors" viewer, and that leaves me with only "The Middle" and "Sing Off" to watch.
  • Quirky and funny !

    I have to say this series was a very positive surprise. When I first saw the premise, I thought - oh no, another sci-fi take on alien-human interactions, another clone of 3rd rock from the sun. But after a few episodes, this series had me hooked. The writing is very good and sends a moral in every episode. And the acting is just amazing !! Each actor is very believable in his or her role. The point is - how would an alien see the normal human incidents we take for granted - some of the insights are very refreshing which we do not see in any other series. The standouts for me are the alien dad and mom, along with the creepy alien kid with the long hair.



    I watch a lot of TV comedies but there are very few that actually have me laughing out loud - this is one such when there are unexpected moments that have you guffawing.



    I am glad to see this was renewed for a second season - I hope it wins over its critics soon and keeps existing fans such as myself happy and laughing for longer !moreless
