Re: I think I'm the only one here enjoying "The Neighbors"...

I have a short attention span where sitcoms are concerned. If they don't grab me right away, I abandon them. That is what happened with this show. The pilot was horrid.

Sounds like it may be worth giving a second chance.

It really is worth it, IMHO. Believe me, no one is more surprised then myself. My wife even likes it and she normally doesn't like these kinds of programs.

I love Amber Weaver! She's so confident and dead pan, so unlike the typical sit com teenager.

Still loving the show! The cast is really getting used to the characters.

Reggie Jackson brings such heart to everything. Loved how Amber, after turning Reggie down, looked at him kinda wistfully.

I missed the first couple of shows, but I've been watching it since I found it. I'm really enjoying it.

The first episode was so bad they should have banned it and pretend it never happened like the Star Wars Christmas special.

I like her and her characterization but she's not a very good actress. However she is getting better, thought the last episode was her strongest.

What's wrong with her portrayal? She's supposed to be deadpan and emotionless. I don't have any disconnect between the performance and the way it's written.

So, The Finale for season 1...

This show really has worked many of the kinks out. Every time I think a sitcom cliche is about to loom... *Bam* they hang a lampshade. Every time I think it's gonna zig then zag, they go from a full run to a dead stop and stare you down instead.

Going to be an interesting Summer indeed... I'm so loving this show.

I like all the fourth wall jokes.

"I think everything will be fine, we seemed to have gotten all the kinks out."

I love this show. I love Larry Bird. I will be crushed if they don't renew it!

Re: I think I'm the only one here enjoying "The Neighbors"...

my partner and i watch it too.

max charles aka max weaver is extremely talented. kinda lost on this show. although abbey just comes over as a stuck up little tramp in training but hey ho, cant have them all lol.

larry-birds just kinda creepy, he has all the charactaristics of someone who would enjoy a kids company but without any of the follow through, which is good, i just mean he's creepy in that way.

Re: I think I'm the only one here enjoying "The Neighbors"...

I really like it too. It reminds me so much of 3rd Rock from the Sun. It's a sitcom and it just happens to have the 3rd person viewpoint from someone like an exchange student from Japan or somewhere very foreign.

Good laughs.
They have been trying to make the daughter cuter and more in the story. It works better and gives them more storylines too.

FYI 3rd Rock from the Sun is being prepped for HD syndication and Blu-ray release by rescanning the 17 year old 35mm original camera negatives. also FYI even though they are not scifi but mentioned in that article:
That ‘70s Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Roseanne, Grounded for Life, A Different World, and The Cosby Show. The conversion will result in more than 1,000 episodes of high-definition content that will be available domestically and internationally as early as fall 2013.
Remastering the shows in HD requires going back to the original episodes and re-scanning all 1,000-plus episodes of the six sitcoms. All of the shows will be delivered in full-screen 16:9 format, and the color will be rebalanced and sharpened for each series.
I just made a TrekBBS thread for 3rd Rock from the Sun remaster for people that aren't seeing it from this sitcom thread.
