No Punches Pulled
28 August 2002 | by (brighton, ma) – See all my reviews

This is a brilliant, corrosive little play by Arkady Leokum of about an hour's running time that was adapted for television by Fielder Cook. Its simple plot concerns a well-to-do, smugly liberal white couple entertaining their black neighbors, who don't, as things turn out, like to be entertained this way. I have not seen this one since it was first aired but remember it as one of the best hours of TV drama I have ever seen. At times Neighbors plays like a very serious, upper middle class version of All In the Family, but ten times better. There are no illusions in this one, at least none that the viewer can see, as the well-intentioned but innately snobbish and patronizing white couple were and are a perfect symbol of a certain variety of liberalism one seldom sees portrayed on television, probably, one suspects, since show business people tend to be on the Left on most issues, it cuts too close to home for comfort.
