'The Neighbors'

<b>What we said then:</b> "The <a href=¿http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/09/the-neighbors-review-we-watched-it-so-you-dont-have-to.html¿><b>best thing we can say</b></a> about 'The Neighbors' is that ABC's new alien sitcom isn't as offensive as last season's 'Work It' ... we think its expiration date passed long before good alien-integration family sitcoms like 'Alf' and '3rd Rock From the Sun' took to the airwaves."<br><br>
<b>What we say now:</b> Weird as it is, "The Neighbors" has become one of the silliest -- and funniest -- shows on television. High-end acting smoothes over the occasional rough patch, and the "outsider" comedy of aliens trying to understand human society and family really works. Also, you haven't lived until you've seen an alien try to make sense of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey."<br><br>
