I didn't watch it when it came out but I binged it on Netflix recently and loved it. Private Practice ended much too soon for my liking but I do understand why it lost viewers at least IMO. The death of this show was making Addison and Sam a couple. It just didn't click. They should have just remained friends and neighbors. Del and Pete both leaving also added it to its demise. Other then that the Cooper, Charlotte romance was great and they stayed together even with various problems which was a breath of fresh air for an evening soap. I wish there was a few more seasons to enjoy.
