Incredible!
7 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

I stumbled upon The Neighbors by accident when I was setting up my PVR to record Modern Family--and it was the happiest stumble I have ever taken. This has to be one of the most original and odd shows ever to grace television. ABC has truly found a hit with this strange supernatural-comedy. The first episode drew me in immediately with its fluid dialogue, inexplicably different story line, and entertaining cast. There is nothing better than watching Simon Templeman as the hilarious, misunderstanding leader of the aliens, Larry Bird. I wondered at first how the writers could possibly carry on from the first episode, which seemed to contain everything someone could ask for in a comedy series, but they have pulled it off week-after-week. There has yet to be a substandard episode. The kids can get a bit irritating, I'll admit, but their roles are small and this is forgivable.

I was elated to find out that the show had received a full-season order and I hope that there are many more to come. Don't come into this series expecting a traditional comedy. If you like odd shows filled with subtle humour in the background to the entertaining foreground, you'll love The Neighbors.
