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

Greys Anatomy is my guilty pleasure,so I was looking forward to this. It didn't quite hit the spot. It is more colourful being set in LA there is a lot of beach and beautiful people. It focuses more on the personal life of the doctors and less on patients. It is quite formulaic patients come into the practice and the doctors learn something from them about themselves and their own lives.It sometimes streaches belief, in some episodes a doctor will spend all day with one patient, maybe thats how it is in LA? One anoying thing for me is that one of the beautiful glamorous doctors says she uses food to feel better and is shown consuming vast quantities of cake and staying very thin, because she says she does pilates in the evening, really?
All that said it passes the time well enough for me to give the next season a go, maybe it will become more engaging.

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!
