Private Practice has become so, so, so bad. I can't put my finger on what it is, but I can say that I don't enjoy watching it anymore.
I think that the biggest reason to why it has become so bad is the predictability. I can always tell what is going to happen at the end of the episode or even in the season finale. It's simply boring.
Let's take the story line about Erica's illness; She gets really bad, she suddenly get better and worse again until she dies. Private Practice ALWAYS kills off characters. It's getting pretty damn annoying. They've killed off Dell, for example. An amazing character that they could have kept and still made the show better.
Now that I think about it, the show started getting worse and worse after Dell died.
I don't even have the energy to write more. The show is just bad, I can't think of a good reason to keep watching it.
