    I'm still trying to decide how I feel about this show. It's not that I hate it but I can't say I like it either. The Positives: it grabs your attention, it is entertaining, it is funny (mostly), it's family friendly Negatives: it's VERY VEERRY weird A LOT, I don't always GET it, in the end it might be more Weird than entertaining and funny. So in a nutshell, It's not terrible and I onlyI'm still trying to decide how I feel about this show. It's not that I hate it but I can't say I like it either.

So in a nutshell, It's not terrible and I only watched maybe 3 episodes so It could have gotten better. It's one of those that grows on you over time like sponge bob did for many people. It's more entertaining to me in a Weird way than funny but I think more people will like this one rather than hate it. Expand

    The Neighbors is a show with its own quirks, I personally like the idea of it. It's really a shame it wasn't executed correctly, it makes you want to watch it, but it doesn't make you laugh or want to know what will happen next.

    This season, ABC has Neighbors, one of the least funny things to air on television since the last Hitler documentary on History.

    The pilot for ABC's extraterrestrial silly-fest feels half-baked, and parts of it just sort of lie there, but this shouldn't be a deal breaker.

    The first two episodes of The Neighbors actually made me laugh more than once--and without the aid of mood-altering substances.
