Watch The Neighbors

Most of us have neighbors we like, don't like or don't understand but how well do we really know them? For instance, the TV series starts out with the Weaver family - Debbie and Marty as the parents and their three children. They bought a home in Hidden Hills, a New Jersey townhome community that is gated and has its own golf course. This area is so private that not one house has been on the market for 10 years - that is, until the Weavers bought it.

It doesn't take long in this series to see that the residents of Hidden Hills are not the average kind of neighbors you would expect. Everyone has pro-athlete names like Dick Butkis and Larry Bird. Another strange thing that this family finds out is that their neighbors only find nourishment by reading books. Later on, they find out that "all" of their neighbors are aliens from a planet known as Zabvron. Another very odd thing they find out is that the men bear children and when they cry an ugly green glob pours from their eyes.

Another strange thing they find out is that the Zabyronians have been on earth for about 10 years and disguised as humans. They are longing to go home and that the Weavers are the first human they have ever known.

With such a contrast in human verses the Zabyronians, it is an interesting and humorous way to explore aliens and humans but as the show reveals, they have some things in common with us - mainly parenthood, marriage and taking care of children. It was a strange but highly interesting TV program. It was a humorous show that intermixed alien life with human life and the results that came from it were funny and highly intriguing.
