Product Description

From the creators of TV's "Party of Five" arrives this coming-of-age drama about thre twentysomething best friends living in Los Angeles and having the best..and worst>>times of their lives. Stars Jennifer Garner, Michael Weatherly, Eion Bailey, Scott Ba

Amazon.com

The 1998 Fox television series Significant Others amounted to six episodes (three of which never aired) before cancellation, but this two-disc set strongly suggests that the witty, nimble dramedy from the creators of Party of Five deserved a longer run. In a nutshell, PO5 went on hiatus in '98, and irritated fans of that series ignored replacement program Significant Others, which follows the career and romance hassles of three twentysomething best friends. Fox pulled the plug on Significant Others very quickly, but fans of actor Scott Bairstow (who went on to a recurring role on PO5) and two terrific actresses, Jennifer Garner and Elizabeth Mitchell (who next turned up in the PO5 spin-off, Time of Your Life), should definitely look into this truncated project.

Bairstow plays Henry, an aspiring writer reduced to churning out website pornography and inexperienced enough to enter, wide-eyed, into an affair with his older, married boss. Campbell (Eion Bailey of Band of Brothers), in defiance of his parents' wishes, stumbles through initial steps to become a producer of children's videos; he's also coping with the shock of discovering pals Henry and Nell (Garner) are getting it on and that an old girlfriend (Mitchell) is marrying his shallow, older brother. Talented Nell, destined for big things but afraid of commitment, hops from one important job to the next and develops an attachment to her absent father's best friend. As with PO5 (and Sisters, another primetime series from some of the same producers), Significant Others treats serious topics with smart dialogue and enough of a light touch to make the series feel comforting and familiar. Still, that's not enough for the irrepressible Garner (Alias, 13 Going on 30), whose enchanting, tragi-comic performance on this series is almost larger-than-life and reminds one of such Golden Age stars as Jean Arthur and Ginger Rogers. --Tom Keogh

I originally watched this series when it debuted in '98 because I adored Scott Bairstow. Only 3 episodes were aired & I have all 3 taped. I happened to have rewatched the show a couple of months ago. I had forgotten all about it until it was mentioned in a special about Jennifer Garner, who I didn't know anything about at the time. When I initially watched the show I found the way that the three lead characters (played by Scott Bairstow, Jennifer Garner & Eion Bailey) interacting in a love triangle, to be sweet & adorable. I was a teenager at that time. Now, rewatching it as a woman in my early 20s it has more resonance, because it's also about the characters' journey to find themselves. Campbell Chasin (Eion Bailey) is still looking to carve out a name for himself in a family where everyone else is expected to go into the family business, just like his brother Ben Chasin (Dark Angel's Michael Weatherly) has. Ben is also applauded by his parents, because he is getting married. He seems to have it all together, until we see him with regret at a missed female fling opportunity right after his wedding. Campbell decides that he can make a killing selling children's videos & tries to get either of his friends to go in on it with him. He's also upset, because he discovers that Nell Glennon (Jennifer Garner), one of his best friend's & ex, is now hooking up with his other best friend, Henry Calloway (Scott Bairstow). Nell is an excellent worker who is so afraid of getting stuck in one track for the rest of her life that she actually quits her job after getting promoted. Her major issue is committing to anything. Henry fancies himself a serious writer. However, he has to pay the bills & does so by writing soft core porn.Read more ›

This series is absolutly fabulous! I never watched this when it was airing because I never heard of it. I didnt hear about it until about a few weeks ago. I will admit the only reason I even bought this was because of Jen Garner and Michael Weatherly. I didnt exspect to fall in love with the characters. After you watch the last episode you will ask yourself over and over again "Why on Earth would such a great series get cancelled?" If you like Dramadys with an awesome cast this series is for you. But be warned if you like this, you will be sad that there is only 6 episodes.

I watched all six episodes over two nights and was amazed at how entertaining it was. The cast were perfect and the characters were people you cared about. Funny, dramatic, touching, all the elements that make a series memorable. Do youself a favor and buy this series now, you will not be disappointed.

I purchased this DVD because Michael Weatherly from NCIS was in it. Very young Michael Weatherly, but he was still a very good actor. I enjoy Jennifer Garner's work as well and she was very good in this too. It is surprising that this show wasn't picked up for another season. Network's never know when they have a classic in the making.

Perhaps these soppy love stories can entertain teenagers for a while, but I watched this series because I was a fan of Alias and I was sorely disappointed. Don't expect anything like action or good acting in this series.

I bought this series because I love all of the actors from more recent series'. I was sadly disappointed. The acting was truly terrible. The only good thing I could glean from watching this series is that I was able to see how all of these actors evolved to become the great actors they are today. Jennifer Garner has grown to become an incredible actress. Michael Weatherly has improved significantly, although I still wouldn't consider him a great actor. Eion Bailey has improved too. If you really want it, buy it for "historical" reasons. Otherwise, don't buy it at all.
