The Neighbors is about a family who moves into a community populated entirely of space aliens who are on a mission to observe earth. They forgot to bring the charger for their interstellar cell phone and have been out of communication with their home planet for ten years. The offspring of one of the alien families accidentally reveals himself in his true form to the humans. After the initial trauma wears off, the humans decide to help the aliens on their quest to learn more about earth. We must presume that future episodes will be built around their excursions into the popular culture surrounding their community. The aliens, for example, have never visited a shopping mall.
The premier episode was laugh out loud funny, at least for my wife and I. We recommend it for anyone who shares our tastes in comedy.
You can see the premiere episode in its full length on ABC.com.
