Private Practice is a Grey’s Anatomy’s first spin-off. It was released in 2007 and ran for six seasons, ending in 2013. The show follows the life of legendary Grey’s character Addison Montgomery as she moves to Los Angeles.
Here are some of the many, many reasons why you should be watching Private Practice.
A Group Of Powerful Women
The Oceanside Wellness practice – which in itself is an additional character in the series – features a number of strong and powerful female doctors and surgeons who outshine their male counterparts at every turn.
First up you’ve got Addison Forbes Montgomery who is a double board-certified OB/GYN, subspecialising in maternal-foetal medicine/foetal surgery, a neonatal surgeon (one of the foremost in the US) and a medical geneticist. There’s Violet Turner, who is a psychiatrist and a published author who gets quite emotionally involved with her patients but gets amazing results. Although quite brash until you get to know her, Charlotte King is the Chief of Staff and attending urologist at St. Ambrose Hospital; additionally, she is a sexologist at Oceanside Wellness.
In-Depth And Complex Relationships
What drives the show are the complex relationships that the Oceanside Wellness doctors have with their patients as well as with each other. These draw you in and get you rooting for them to succeed at whatever they are doing.
Take Cooper Freedman and Charlotte King, for instance. Yes, their break up during Season 3 was by no means pretty (and actually painted Cooper in an uncharacteristically cruel and sadistic light), however apart from that, their relationship during the series was nothing short of inspiring.
The way they met was just so surprising, it was practically iconic. But after acting as friends with benefits for a little while, the two realised that they really loved each other. They were married, took in Cooper’s son, and even had triplets in the last season of the show.
Another relationship that was as enriching as an lucky creek online casino was between Addison Montgomery and Jake Reilly. Addison and Jake met quite late on in the series, with the latter just making his Private Practice appearance in the last few episodes of the fourth season. He invited Addison to come to Fiji with him, and she accepted however later stood him up.
Obviously, that wasn’t a great beginning, but Jake acted pretty cool about the whole thing and even helped Addison to try and fall pregnant. The pair soon developed real feelings for each other and they ultimately tied the knot in the series finale.
The last on our list of favourite Private Practice relationships is between Sam And Naomi Bennett. Even though these two had some very major ups and downs over the course of the series, they could do what most exes are not able to do and remain cordial after they split up. Of course, they did have some massive arguments. However, they always managed to reconcile afterwards.
