Lovers Disparage Marriage

Shout! Factory and NBC Universal Television release the DVD of the critically acclaimed comedy series, “Significant Otherstoday, appropriately enough… on Valentine’s Day.

Originally broadcast on Bravo in 2004, the unscripted series stars a talented ensemble cast of improvisational actors and comedians as four young couples undergoing marriage counseling.

Brian Palermo as James is all business — a financial analyst who has it all except the confidence to believe it, something his more spirited and free-loving wife, Chelsea (Andrea Savage), finds endearing… sometimes.

Faith Salie is the scholarly and pregnant Eleanor whose husband Ethan (Herschel Bleefeld), is finding the pressure of impending fatherhood more than a little challenging.

Jane Edith Wilson plays the organized and seemingly predictable Constance, who finds her world unraveling when her husband Bill (Fred Goss) loses his job in full midlife free fall.

And Chris Spencer and Nicole Randall Johnson are Devon and Alex — two parents doing their best to balance the demands of work and the needs of their nine-year-old son; they are fairly sure that they don’t have issues but are checking-in, just in case.

Special features on this 2-Disc set of “Significant Others” (The Complete Series) include producers’ commentaries on five episodes. SRP is $29.98, but you’ll find this available online for about $21.00.
