An all-star cast including Taye Diggs, Amy Brenneman, Audra MacDonald, Tim Daly, Paul Adelstein, KaDee Strickland, and Chris Lowell is tested at every turn by the moral and ethical dilemmas that accompany their clinic’s unique medical cases. Addison learns a huge secret about her past while dealing with new feelings for a friend, Sam and Naomi receive a life-changing announcement from their daughter, Copper’s personal life is affected when Charlotte joins the practice, Dell struggles to raise a daughter on his own, and Violet realizes she has an important decision to make regarding the well-being of her baby.
Own all 23 episodes of Season Three in this 5-disc DVD collection, along with never-before-seen bonus features including bloopers, deleted scenes, and Kate Walsh’s personal favorite moments. With a prescription for a healthy dose of romance, drama, and heartwarming moments, Private Practice makes perfect.
Over the season, love triangles expand into rectangles and maybe even pentangles as Addison, Sam, Pete, Violet, Sheldon, and the rest trade partners more often than square dancers. Addison is stunned to learn secrets about her parents, Sam and Naomi are shocked to learn secrets about their daughter, and pretty much everyone reveals a secret of one kind or another at some point in the series. And it ends with a dramatic operation on a pregnant woman as she's simultaneously giving birth--and a central character dies! Fortunately, these emotional high jinx are carried out by a ridiculously good-looking cast; honestly, being a guest star on Private Practice is downright cruel. (If Taye Diggs isn't the handsomest man on television, he's at least in the top three.) The combination of gloss and angst may turn some viewers away, but others will dig into this show with delight. --Bret Fetzer

The second season really didn't explore too much of the characters and focused more on the medical cases and those sort of stories which did make it good but the characters seemed somewhat shallow and hard to watch sometimes since we couldn't understand their intentions.
However, this season pulls us MUCH more into the character's history and actually lays down a whole case for everyone. Everyone had their shining moment and story which were pretty well written in my opinion and was much better than the previous two seasons. Especially jumping off Season two's cliffhanger. In my opinion, it was a strong show but there were times where I wished there was more.
I'm still a loyal fan and watcher.
For the second season, viewers were promised a much more exciting season and sure enough, Shondra Rhimes and crew were able to take the series to different heights this time around.
The premise of the series is that Dr. Addison Montgomery has left Seattle Grace Hospital and moved to California to work for a private practice, Oceanside Wellness Center. In the first season, Dr. Addison Montgomery had to win the respect of her fellow doctors and relationships were examined in the first season.
In the second season, Oceanside Wellness Center is not exactly in the best circumstances as the center faces major financial problems, a new rival practice trying to steal their clients, more relationship problems and drama, cross-over episodes with "Grey's Anatomy" and to cap things off, a dark and twisted season finale that viewers were probably not expecting.
For the third season, "Private Practice" was all about personal challenges and taking things up a notch. For Addison, we know that her promiscuity comes from her father and she knows she has to deal with it. This season, she finds herself in more complication situations and also having to decide where she stands with Pete and Sam.
Naomi is also put into an interesting situation as her move to another center tests her friendship with Addison but also her business/personal relationships with the men she works with.Read more ›
This season of Private Practice, Naomi has moved to the 4th floor. Violet is ignoring her baby because it reminds her of the crime. Violet also has slept with someone's father. Naomi's ex-husband doesn't really do anything and Pete spends his time waiting on Violet to come around. Addison is not dating anyone and is delivering every distressed baby in town. Imagine my frustration when one of the babies had a terratoma. ENOUGH with the terratomas.
What I find interesting or odd is Shonda Rhimes' storytelling. On her shows, family is NOT important, only friendships. The emphasis is always on "best friends" which makes the shows feel juvenile. These people are grown with kids of their own, saying best friend over and over again sounds stupid. As adults, most people have a close friend or closest friend.
I am going to give this show one more season, but as it stands it is not that interesting of a show.
