Editorial Reviews

Does any show--medical, legal, or plain old prime-time soap opera--cram in as much personal melodrama and high-stakes issues as Private Practice? Every episode is a staggering compilation of psychological knots and thorny ethical dilemmas. To pick an example almost at random, Violet finds her personal traumas interfering with her ability to objectively counsel a woman who's considering carrying her long-sought baby to term… even though that baby resulted from a rape that she and her husband are seeking counseling to leave behind. At the same time, Violet is avoiding giving any affection to her own baby, the baby that was untimely ripped from her womb at the end of season two, and the baby's father (it would be a spoiler to reveal whom) tries repeatedly to get her to even acknowledge the infant. That's only one story line in the season's fourth episode, which also features a homeless girl with a child trying to evade her possessive mother, financial strife, and interpersonal conflict between floors. Maybe seeing only one episode a week makes such a traffic jam of issues seem exciting, but when watching the series on DVD, the cumulative effect can be preposterous.

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

Product Description

Relive every moment of ABC’s hit drama Private Practice: The Complete Third Season – from the Golden Globe-winning creator of Grey’s Anatomy. The challenges that Dr. Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) and her co-workers at the Oceanside Wellness Group face every day have bonded them into a tight knit family, but big changes may be just around the corner.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than skin deep. August 25, 2010
By Alex
I've watched this season on live TV and followed it since the main character Addison left Seattle Grace (Grey's Anatomy) and lived in LA. Now I admit that the first season of Private Practice wasn't as amazing as it should have been following in the large footsteps of Grey's Anatomy. However, it was good enough to stand up on it's own.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars LOVED the show until... January 20, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I have fallen in love with Private Practice but it would be nice to know what happens after season 3 episode 6. Aparrently amazon cuts contracts to shows without notifying the customer that it is no longer included in prime. I am NOT paying the $80 plus 1.99 per episode or buying each season. Looks like amazon has lost my business, unless this show returns to prime before my year is up I will not be renewing.

In 2007, Shonda Rhimes (creator/executive producer of "Grey's Anatomy" and writer of "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement") developed a spin-off of "Grey's Anatomy" titled "Private Practice" based on the life of Dr. Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh). For the most part, "Private Practice" Season One lasted about nine episodes and received a so/so reception from fans.

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.

I began watching this season of Private Practice on my Amazon Prime account when it was abruptly taken off of Prime. What I was able to watch I enjoyed. Would like to have it and Grey's Anatomy back on Prime. Please do so soon!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Show - Amazon Edition Issue November 30, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Private Practice is great- this season was GREAT and it is definitely worth a watch.

However, after I ordered this from Amazon and watched through it when I went to "sell it back" to Amazon Trade-In it was denied. It returned under the "unauthorized edition" policy which states that the disc or contents are not the originals released by the publisher. I was really disappointed that Amazon would sell me this kind of version. I will think twice before ordering season 4 through them or any other box sets. Amazon really dropped the ball on this.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love this show September 11, 2014
Verified Purchase
I love this show. I've just gotten to season 3 and I plan to watch all seasons. I HATE Naomi, especially the way she treated her daughter, but Audra McDonald is a great actress to make me believe her enough to thoroughly dislike the person she plays. But Paul Adelstein and Amy Brenneman are so unbelievable in their characters that I simply cannot watch them anymore - I'm starting to fast forward through their scenes. Shonda Rhimes is creating some of the best television ever, but these two actors are the worst casting of any show she's done.
