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.

Amazon.com

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

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.

I only started watching this show out of boredom along with Grays Anatomy, but I fell in love with this one and dropped the other.

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!

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.

I have watched all seasons of Grey's Anatomy even though I found the show annoying. The show was annoying because the patients only had the following conditions: neurological problems, terratomas, perforated bowels, etc.. I liked being caught up in an occupation unlike my own. After Grey's was over, I decided to watch Private Practice. Private Practice is an exact copy of Grey's Anatomy. In the Second Season of Private Practice, you actually saw Grey's Anatomy actors/actresses. One promiment cast member is Krevner; she is now on Grey's Anatomy as Jackson's wife but on Private Practice she played a college student who gave up her baby.

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.

if you love drama, you will love private practice. even though these are professional people running a successful business, they still have plenty of time for romance and their lives and everyday is a different day with exciting twists and turns.

Nice off-shoot of "Greys Anatomy". The actors characters have diverse personalities and interactions that makes each episode different and interesting to watch. Tends to be a bit too serious at times.

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.
