Scott 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, 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 (Jennifer 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. Significant Others treats
serious topics with smart dialogue and enough of a light touch to
make the series feel comforting and familiar.
