Kate Walsh: Practice Makes Perfect -- Journey With Kate Through Her Acting Career To See How She Landed One Of TV's Most Sought-After Roles

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

UPC: 786936754216
DESCRIPTION: Private Practice is a spin-off of the highly popular ABC series Grey s Anatomy starring Kate Walsh as Dr. Addison Forbes Montgomery, a renowned neonatal surgeon. After realizing that her life isn t advancing at Seattle Grace, Addison packs her bags and heads off to Santa Monica to start a new life. She reunites with her newly divorced med school friends, Naomi (Audra McDonald) and Sam (Taye Diggs), and joins them in the chic private practice along with the other doctors on staff. END

Amazon.com

Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh, Grey's Anatomy) leaves behind McDreamy, McSteamy, and McSeattle to join California's Oceanside Wellness Center, a private practice that was founded by two best friends from med school. But if she's expecting a drama-free existence, she's in the wrong place. Naomi (Audra McDonald) and Sam (Taye Diggs) Bennett are the perfect couple who aren't together anymore. Pediatrician Cooper Freedman (Paul Adelstein) is a horny Peter Pan looking for love on the Internet. Violet Turner (Amy Brenneman) is a psychiatrist who can dish out the advice, but can't get over her own breakup to a man who has clearly moved on. And then there's Pete Wilder (Tim Daly), an alternative-medicine practitioner so good-looking and charming that Addison can't stop crushing on him, even though she dismisses his brand of practice as New Age-y. Created by Grey's Anatomy's Shonda Rhimes to capitalize on Walsh's popularity, Private Practice has some screwy moments that don't fall in line with Addison's cosmopolitan character. Are we really to believe that Addison is so messed up that she really believes the elevator is talking to her? That conceit would've worked on Ally McBeal's titular heroine, but on Addison Montgomery? We don't think so. The show, which was affected by the writer's strike of 2007, lacks cohesiveness in the truncated 10 episodes on this DVD box set. But still, the series shows promise. Though some of the plot devises are melodramatic at best (Sam has to deliver the baby of a woman who had been robbing the store just moments before), viewers end up rooting for the quirky characters to get their personal lives in order. Though we're supposed to be longing for Addison and Pete to couple up, and for the Bennetts to realize that their divorce was a mistake, it's really Cooper and Violet who have all the makings to be the show's most intriguing couple. The debut season showed some interesting plot devices: two couples whose babies were mistakenly exchanged at birth; a senior citizen with unexplainable bruising on his body; and one of the female characters dealing with her own infertility issues. But the thrust of the show is how the doctors work and play together. Talking to one of her patients, Addison says, "Everyone screws up once in awhile." That can also be the motto for the Oceanside Wellness Center. --Jae-Ha Kim

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE PrP!!! May 17, 2008
Format:DVD
This show just got better and better with each episode. It came into its own, finding a great balance between comedy and drama. The acting is wonderful, Kate Walsh is SPECTACULAR, she just keeps adding more and more layers to the character we have all come to love as the beautifully complicated Dr. Addison Montgomery. Amy Brenamann is wonderful as the talented and flawed Violet. Tim Daly is great as the sexy complex quack Pete. Taye Diggs is deliciously HOT, funny, somewhat dorky, but still manly Sam, Audra McDonald is great as the ex-wife who is trying to keep it all together but you can see that she is on the brink of breaking down completely, and Paul Adelstein is a maverick of talent. LOVE this show I definitely see nominations for the show and the actors in the near future especially for our AMAZINGLY talented leading lady Kate Walsh.

I am so excited for this series to come out. I miss this AMAZING show. I can't wait till it comes back this fall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addison starts a new life in LA....... May 11, 2008
Format:DVD
Private Practice - a spin-off from the ABC medical drama Grey's Anatomy - debuted in September 2007, with Addison Forbes Montgomery (the beautiful Kate Walsh) starting a new life in a private practice medical clinic in LA.

Many have tried to compare the show to Greys, which should be avoided as it has an entirely different tone - lighter, funnier & less OTT-angsty than Greys. It also benefits from being set where it is actually filmed & features location filming out-and-about in LA.

Kate Walsh shines as Addison & easily carries the show. She is surrounded by a small core cast of experienced & talented actors - Tim Daly, Audra McDonald, Taye Diggs, Amy Brenneman, Paul Adelstein, Chris Lowell & KaDee Strickland.

After a rocky first episode, the writing improved as the series progressed & the show started to find its own identity & distance from Greys.

It was the highest-rated new drama this year & one of the first freshman shows to be picked up for an entire 22-ep run, but sadly the US writer's strike shortened the season to only 9 episodes.

ABC have chosen to re-launch their successful new shows in Fall 08, which is when Private Practice will return with Season 2 to anchor the Wednesday night line-up.

The extras for this DVD release are -

1. Kate Walsh - Practice makes Perfect (Working Title) - spend some quality time with Kate Walsh & get a taste of her life beyond the confines of the Private Practice Set
2. Alternative Ensemble : Behind the Scenes of Private Practice
3. Two Extended Episodes
4. Deleted Scenes
5. Bloopers
6. Audio Commentaries

5.0 out of 5 stars The best new show of 2007 :-) June 4, 2008
Format:DVD
I absolutely love this show (I saw almost all of it when I was in America and thankful for that because Australia is last again). It's fantastic and addictive and funny and so enjoyable. If I'm going to be completely honest, the main reasons I began watching this is because of Tim Daley and Taye Diggs. Especially Tim - he's so cute. But I found myself getting really involved with the story lines and the characters and now have a new favourite show.
After the initial episode of seeing the crossover from Greys to Private, we see the first episode called In Which We Meet Addison, a Nice Girl From Somewhere Else (all the episodes are called In Which ...) where she joins the Oceanside Wellness Group where she was offered a job. The clinic is mostly owned by one of her best friends in college. One of the other workers there is Dr Pete Wilder (Tim Daley) who throughout the season, she has a strong strong chemistry with. It makes for very interesting situations. Some of the episodes are written by Shondra Rhimes so they still have a Greys feel to them.
I have to say that I really like this more than Greys. The characters are all fantastic and complex and that helps make this show great. I'm so lucky that I got to see a lot of this when I was in America last year because as usual, Australia is behind the rest of the world with most things and I have no clue when we are getting this. I just hope my copy of this dvd comes before we get to FINALLY see it over here. I love this program and can't wait to own the dvd. I highly recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced for the number of episodes September 6, 2008
Format:DVD
I rather like "Private Practice". It's often implausible, but that's one of the features of escapist entertainment. The cast is talented and attractive. I'm looking forward to watching the new season. But I can't give this first DVD set a good review, because it just isn't a good value.

Due to the writers' strike, Season One of "Private Practice" only had 9 episodes. A normal season is 22 shows. But this collection's list price is the same as for a full season. The producers, having taken a major financial hit by not having as much advertising revenue as expected, are trying to recoup some of their costs from us by overpricing this set. I can't condone that.

I rate this collection 3-4 stars for quality, but only 0-1 stars for value. That gives a combined rating of 2 stars: disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Frothy February 25, 2010
Format:DVD
Spin-offs of TV series are rarely as good as the original, and "Private Practice" is a perfect example. Some reviewers have cautioned us not to try to compare this to "Grey's Anatomy," but that is impossible--for me, at least. "Grey's Anatomy" was about the journey of five young interns on their way to becoming surgeons. The first two or three seasons were fascinating, but then it faded, and out of that fade was born "Private Practice."

Set in Los Angeles it is about doctors who treat people with holistic medicine, acupuncture, psychiatry, doctors who do not dress like doctors, doctors who drink white wine and look as if they just dropped in the office from the beach. The story lines are most often about people problems, rather than medical problems.

And as such, I just didn't find it worth watching when there are so many other better things.
