“The Back Nine,” this week’s episode of The Neighbors, was very sneaky. I was pleasantly surprised it started bringing in one of the beauties of science-fiction; the ability to talk about arbitrary race and class issues.Now the show is really beginning to be what I thought it would be from the pilot.
This episode the Bird-Kersees got invited to a country club and they feel it’s because they are finally being recognized for being superior beings. They also think it’s because Earthlings finally accept them. The Weavers feel getting accepted into the country club could be their chance to finally feel accepted by others too, although they want the ritzy to want them to be a part of the hoity toity fold.
