Editorial Reviews

Significant Others is an innovative and irreverent comedy about couples in and outside of marriage counseling. On Bravo® for two seasons, these 12 episodes take an hilariously honest look at marriage and the rewards — and costs — that come with being in a committed relationship.

More real than traditional comedies and more imaginative than reality shows, this series features a talented ensemble of improvisational actors and comedians who, quite literally, script themselves.

Get to know James & Chelsea and Eleanor & Ethan and Bill & Connie and Alex & Devon. They’ll remind you of everyone you know.

5.0 out of 5 stars I fell off my chair. January 4, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Seriously, this is the funniest frigging show I've seen come out in the last couple of years. Can't WAIT to get this DVD. The concept is totally original--it alternates between seeing these couples in their everyday lives, and seeing them in the therapist's office--except you the viewer are in the therapist's seat, because the couples are talking right into the camera. The improv is relentlessly brilliant--if you're a Gen-Xer or thereabouts, they nail the humor. For points of reference, I'm a huge fan of SNL and Family Guy.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am sooooo happy this show is coming out on DVD!!!!! February 6, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you're a fan of shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development, The Simpsons, The Office and the like, you'll lurrrrve this show. It's largely improvisational, and every single episode had me wheezing with laughter-induced asthma.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shout! Factory produces gold, I tell ya! March 7, 2007
By BDT
Format:DVD
I happened upon this DVD purely by accident. I saw Nicole Randall Johnson (of MADtv) on the cover and I am becoming a big fan of hers. I also noticed the Shout! Facory logo on it and knowing the stellar series they have produced ("Freaks and Geeks," "Undeclared" and especially "The Job") I decided to take the chance. As far as I am concerned, Shout! is now 4 for 4, this show is simply fantastic.

This show is done in odd form (and I mean that in a good way). It follows the marriages of four separate couples. The only thing they have in common is the therapist they all go to, the four couples have NO interaction what-so-ever. Each episode focuses on three of the four couples.

The couples are all hilarious and mostly well-matched. My favorite couple is Bill and Connie. Bill (played by the, in my opinion, genius Fred Goss) is unemployed and in a dark abyss of depression. The opening scene between he and Connie is one of the funniest segments I have ever seen. The next couple (and the only couple featured in every episode) is James and Chelsea. It is easy to see why they enjoy most of the screen time as the actors, Brian Palermo and Andrea Savage, have the best chemistry of anyone on the show. Their back-and-forth is absolutely top shelf. The other couples, Devon (Chris Spencer) and Alex (Nicole Randall Johnson) and Ethan (Herschel Bleefeld) and Eleanor (Faith Salie) are fantastic but can pale in comparison to the others.

The topics range from infidelity to divorce to pregnancy to Fred Goss dancing around in skimpy underwear. It is completely hilarious and I could not recommend it any more. Only 12 episodes got made (Shout!, while maintaining a high quality, cannot keep a show in the air) which is a crying shame. If you like anything Shout! has ever done, you will not be disappointed here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad July 26, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I could barely watch the first three episodes before I trashed it. It is not funny, it is not well done, the acting is decent I guess but the characters are pathetic individuals with no depth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Significant Others - The Complete Series January 29, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great series. Smart, witty, and extremely well written. If only it had gained more popularity; I would have loved to have seen at least two more seasons to see how the characters were developed. Reminds me a bit of what Modern Family is today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant & Ahead of Its Time... December 21, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Before "The Office" and "In Treatment," Bravo put a group of comedian-couples on the couch for an inventive, improvised show about couples in therapy. You'll recognize some of the principals from commercials and from bit parts in movies and TV shows that have a quirky, improvised comedy feel. And others you won't recognize from anything, but you'll wish for more of them, somewhere, anywhere. This is a rare show about "attached life" that doesn't alienate single viewers and that tells all the couples out there, "it's not just you." Dysfunction leads to hilarity and occasionally the awkward laugh, but in a really good way. This is one of my all-time favorite shows, and if you're like me, you'll find yourself incredulous and disappointed that the show only lasted one season...like I said, ahead of its time.
