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
