    Finally, a good episode. Private Practice is a solid show, but it just has not been delivering as of late. Tonight though, I enjoyed myself when watching this show. It was funny, it was engaging and it really just was entertaining. Who would have thought that a plot involving Sheldon being someone all the women wanted to sleep with would be good? And finally Violet did something meaningful in her quest to save a man who wanted to stay in prison.

    Strong episode of the Shonda Rhimes medical drama tonight. Hope this is the start of the show getting back on track.moreless
  • Getting better

    One of the better episodes this season, Hopefully there will me more character developments rather that the repetitive, and some times very annoying, whining about the different relationship constellations. Recently, the only good things about it have been Amy Brenneman, Kadee Strickland and Brian Benben. Cooper was better this week. Not as needy or whiny as he has been lately. Also the cases are picking up. Last season ended well, after too much whining about relationships. Hopefully the series could get back on track with good medical cases, character developments, and less whining about unnecesary conflicts whithin all the romantic relationships.moreless
  • Far better than usual

    Like i said, its far better than the usual episodes. I absolutely love the way the subplots come together in this episode: Amelia and Sheldon, Addison and Sam, Cooper and Charlotte, Pete and Violet. This episode dont have Naomi, which is fine by me. What surprises me was Addison saying how wonderful Sam is. I mean, we know he started Private Practice being this guy who walked out of his marriage without any explanation. I remembered Naomi being kind of hurt by his action, at the same time puzzled. Isn't it weird that they make him to be this perfect boyfriend now? Hmmm.

    Anyways, I hope Private Practice turns out more episodes like this.moreless
