• At first this show was amazing because of its tie to Grey's Anatomy, but now it stands alone as an epic show full of complex characters. Addison was great in Grey's but my god does she grow and explode in Private Practice. You fall in love with the characters and become obsessed with their lives. Some serious topics come in to play such as rape, kidnapping, death, drug abuse, domestic abuse, mental illness, complicated pregnancies, but all are handled with exquisite grace which you would expect from Shonda Rhimes. A powerful show that doesn't get nearly enough attention!
