Show Summary

Significant Others is a funny take on serious relationships. It is a unique, improvised show about four couples going through couples therapy. It chronicles their lives in and out of the marriage counseling offices, and features a cast of highly talented improvisational actors and comedians who, quite literally, script themselves. The ensemble includes Brian Palermo (writer for The Weekenders) in the role of straight-laced financial analyst James, Andrea Savage (Good Morning, Miami, The West Wing) as his free-spirited wife Chelsea, Herschel Bleefeld (Bruce Almighty) in the role of anxious father-to-be Ethan, Faith Salie (Sex and the City) as mother-to-be Eleanor, Fred Goss (South Park, The Man Show) as good-hearted, but not happy Bill, and Jane Edith Wilson (Curb Your Enthusiasm) as his wife Connie. Other regular cast members include Nicole Randall Johnson (Miss Match, CSI) as Alex, and Chris Spencer(Vibe, movies The Sixth Man and Sin) as Devon. Meet The Couples: Chelsea & James: The couple married after a torrid and all-too-short courtship. Now that they've tied the knot and things have simmered down, they'll have to find out who exactly this person really is that they've become committed to. Ethan & Eleanor: A pair of twenty-somethings who have grown older without quite growing up. But for this couple, a growth spurt may be coming sooner than they think. Connie & Bill: This couple, sadly, is hardly ever communitaing. Ever since Bill lost his job, something has been missing from their marriage; however, missing things often turn up in unexpected places. Alex & Devon: They are a successful couple seeking to be good parents to their son Rodney. That is, when they aren't too busy arguing with each other, their maid Carlotta, or most everyone else.moreless

  • Four couples, true to life situations, all performed by improv actors, with a healthy dose of insanity.

    So a friend of mine let me borrow the series on DVD. There were only 12 episodes, which made me expect the show to be great. It reminds me of Fawlty Towers, one of Britain's most critically acclaimed shows in the 1970s but only had 12 episodes. Funny how the best ones get away so quickly. I laughed a lot when I watched this show. Scenarios include a horny pregnant woman, a couple of control of freaks, a man who cheats on his wife with her sister, a 30-year old who is still 14 and runs to his mom when he gets in an argument with his wife, and a couple who are in denial about being less-than-perfect parents, with a son who hears everything. Being completely unscripted, the show takes hilarious twists and turns while remaining watchable and believable. I'm sad that more people have not watched it. I would hope for it to get picked up by Bravo again, but it probably won't. It seems as though this may have just been a side project for actors who already had a career and just wanted to do something fun. Love it!moreless
  • A great show. I wish they would put it back.

    I love watching this show entitled "Significant Others". It is really funny and has almost all kinds of couples there are. There are also parts that put the viewer in the eyes of the marriage therapist while the three couples tell you what has been happening in their lives.

    It's a blast to watch.

    Please BRAVO put it back.
