Storyline

The Neighborhood stars Cedric the Entertainer in a comedy about what happens when the friendliest guy in the Midwest moves his family to a neighborhood in Los Angeles where not everyone looks like him or appreciates his extreme neighborliness. Dave Johnson is a good-natured, professional conflict negotiator. When his wife, Gemma, gets a job as a school principal in L.A., they move from Michigan with their young son, Grover, unfazed that their new dream home is located in a community quite different from their small town. Their opinionated next-door neighbor, Calvin Butler, is wary of the newcomers, certain that the Johnsons will disrupt the culture on the block. However, Calvin's gracious wife, Tina, rolls out the welcome wagon; their chipper younger son, Marty, thinks the Johnsons could be good for the community; and their unemployed older son, Malcolm, finds Dave may finally be someone who understands him.

Ruined potential
5 June 2020 | by sarahpuff144See all my reviews

I normally don't give sitcoms too much thought, because the main point is comedy. But, this show just doesn't sit right with me. There's way too much emphasis on race. It's two men who come from different backgrounds, so of course they're different. I wish every episode didn't revolve around that, it gets old quick. The only characters that are not stereotyped are the two sons. It's pretty uncomfortable to watch to be honest. The actors are pretty talented, which is the only good thing.
