Product Description

All nine episodes from the first season of the 'Grey's Anatomy' spinoff series. The series revolves around renowned surgeon, Dr. Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh), as she leaves the Grace Hospital in Seattle and moves to California, where she joins a group of her old medical school friends at a private practice in Los Angeles. Episodes comprise: 'In Which We Meet Addison, a Nice Girl from Somewhere Else', 'In Which Sam Receives an Unexpected Visitor', 'In Which Addison Finds the Magic', 'In Which Addison Has a Very Casual Get Together', 'In Which Addison Finds a Showerhead', 'In Which Charlotte Goes Down the Rabbit Hole', 'In Which Sam Gets Taken for a Ride', 'In Which Cooper Finds a Port in His Storm' and 'In Which Dell Finds His Fight'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh, Grey's Anatomy) leaves behind McDreamy, McSteamy, and McSeattle to join California's Oceanside Wellness Center, a private practice that was founded by two best friends from med school. But if she's expecting a drama-free existence, she's in the wrong place. Naomi (Audra McDonald) and Sam (Taye Diggs) Bennett are the perfect couple who aren't together anymore. Pediatrician Cooper Freedman (Paul Adelstein) is a horny Peter Pan looking for love on the Internet. Violet Turner (Amy Brenneman) is a psychiatrist who can dish out the advice, but can't get over her own breakup to a man who has clearly moved on. And then there's Pete Wilder (Tim Daly), an alternative-medicine practitioner so good-looking and charming that Addison can't stop crushing on him, even though she dismisses his brand of practice as New Age-y. Created by Grey's Anatomy's Shonda Rhimes to capitalize on Walsh's popularity, Private Practice has some screwy moments that don't fall in line with Addison's cosmopolitan character. Are we really to believe that Addison is so messed up that she really believes the elevator is talking to her? That conceit would've worked on Ally McBeal's titular heroine, but on Addison Montgomery? We don't think so. The show, which was affected by the writer's strike of 2007, lacks cohesiveness in the truncated 10 episodes on this DVD box set. But still, the series shows promise. Though some of the plot devises are melodramatic at best (Sam has to deliver the baby of a woman who had been robbing the store just moments before), viewers end up rooting for the quirky characters to get their personal lives in order. Though we're supposed to be longing for Addison and Pete to couple up, and for the Bennetts to realize that their divorce was a mistake, it's really Cooper and Violet who have all the makings to be the show's most intriguing couple. The debut season showed some interesting plot devices: two couples whose babies were mistakenly exchanged at birth; a senior citizen with unexplainable bruising on his body; and one of the female characters dealing with her own infertility issues. But the thrust of the show is how the doctors work and play together. Talking to one of her patients, Addison says, "Everyone screws up once in awhile." That can also be the motto for the Oceanside Wellness Center. --Jae-Ha Kim

Private Practice is a spin off of Grey's Anatomy created by Shonda Rhimes. The show follows the life of Dr. Addison Montgomery as she leaves Seattle Grace Hospital in order to join a private practice (Oceanside Wellness) in Los Angeles. The team at Oceanside Wellness consists of divorced couple Sam (internal medicine) and fertility specialist Naomi Pete (an alternative medicine specialist) who catches Addisons eye, Violet (a neurotic psychiatrist), Cooper (the playboy pediatrician) and Dell, (the office manager/ traniee midwife) who's love with Namoi.

Like any other spin off private practice will always face comparison to its parent show and in such comparisons private practice will always come out the lesser show. However viewed on its own, private practice is an enjoyable show; with some advantages over Grey's including the lack of a titular character and a litghter and warmer atmosphere. Fans of Kate Walsh and her Grey's Character Addison Montgomery will no doubt fall in love with the show, as the charater takes finally get more of a chance to shine. Each of the first seasons 9 episodes (shorten due to the writes strike) allows each of the characters to take center stage, establishing them and the nature of the show.

All things considered, Private Practice is off to a fairly solid start

Private Practice - a spin-off from the ABC medical drama Grey's Anatomy - debuted in September 2007, with one of Greys most popular characters, Addison Forbes Montgomery (the beautiful Kate Walsh), starting a new life at a private practice medical clinic in LA.

Many have tried to compare the show to Greys, which should be avoided as it has an entirely different tone - lighter, funnier & less OTT-angsty than Greys. You won't see any ferry disasters or ghosts on this show ! It also benefits from being set where it is actually filmed & features location filming out-and-about in LA.

Kate Walsh shines as Addison & easily carries the show. She is surrounded by a small core cast of experienced & talented actors - Tim Daly, Audra McDonald, Taye Diggs, Amy Brenneman, Paul Adelstein, Chris Lowell & KaDee Strickland.

After a rocky first episode, the writing improved as the series progressed & the show started to find its own identity & distance from Greys.

It was affected by the 2007/08 US writer's strike & therefore only 9 episodes of the 22 ordered were completed for Season 1. A full Season 2 has just finished airing in the US (& it starts on Living in the UK on 25 June 2009). Season 3 has been picked up for 2009/10 - the only new ABC show from the writer's strike season to still be on the air (RIP Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money, Eli Stone etc).

Worth watching as an introduction to the show & characters, but the storylines really start evolving in Season 2.

The extras for this DVD release are -

1. Kate Walsh - Practice makes Perfect - a 30 minute biography of Kate Walsh with friends, family & colleagues contributing. A must-have for any fan !
2. Alternative Ensemble : Behind the Scenes of Private Practice
3.

i havent got the boxset but i have seen the series and it is absolutely brilliant. I am a fan of Grey's Anatomy and thought this show wouldnt be as good, and at first i wasnt sure, but it's absolutely brilliant. It shouldnt be seen as a spin off from Grey's but a show in it's own right. I've just started getting into season 2 and i'm really loving it. Like many people, when Addison showed up in Grey's i really disliked her, but she softened and now i think she's a brilliant character and Kate Walsh is brilliant playing her. All the actors are fab in PP.

It is annoying that the writers strike affected this show, much like it did all the other American shows i love, so i'm looking forward to a lengthy season 2. Some people might not like the fact it is a small cast, unlike Greys. But i love how close knit it is. And they storylines are good, strong and addictive. I'm really glad they decided to keep the show going and i hope it goes on for many more years!

I have become addicted to Private Practice so quickly it is unreal and I am currently half way through season 2, with season 3 on my shelf ready for the finale. I was a Grey's Anatomy fan before this and at first I was expecting Private Practice to be exactly the same with a different cast... I was wrong. Private Practice has the same wit and likability that Grey's has but has a completely different atmosphere. The show is very glamorous (contrasting with Grey's which is a lot grittier)and makes for compulsive viewing. A great cast, Kate Walsh is very lovable as the lead Addison. Taye Diggs (Kevin Hill, Ally McBeal, Will and Grace) plays Sam aka Dr Feelgood and Amy Brennaman (Judging Amy, Frasier) plays shrink Violet. This season only has 9 episodes but it includes great special features including a video biography of Kate Walsh. Buy it, you'll love it... SERIOUSLY!

I know that some people do not like Grey's anatomy, I love it myself but friends that have come over and watched this have actually said they like it better. - It is easy to get into and you don't need to know anything about greys, It does help to be "in the know" but as I say it really doesn't matter.

I loved it, I recommend it to all..
