In a TV trope as old as "The Addams Family" and "The Munsters," minimally updated by animation, much crudity and current pop culture references, TBS' new series "Neighbors From Hell" seeks to lampoon human depravity by contrasting it with the more reasonable behavior of supernatural beings, in this case demons.
The hell this time around may be full of requisite flames, but the preferred method of torture is lame irony — sinners must listen to Britney Spears, Satan looks like Hellboy run amok but acts more middle management than Lord of Darkness, and demons are allowed lunch breaks, signaled by the screech of a creature that bears a passing resemblance to the bird who provided a similar service in "The Flintstones."
The Fred of this piece is Balthazor (voiced by "MADtv's" Will Sasso), a well-intentioned demon with a weakness for humans. Within minutes he is banished from hell for the crime of watching TV for pleasure when rules clearly state it should be used only for torture because, as Satan informs him, "it rots the mind. And that's a fact."
So right away, you pretty much know the level of humor you're in for.
As luck would have it, Balthazor's knowledge of TV culture makes him perfect for the job at hand — infiltrating the human ranks to prevent an American company from completing a drill so powerful it would reach the center of the Earth, i.e. hell.
