Private Practice: Season 1 (2007-2008)




Critic Consensus: A mediocre Grey's Anatomy spinoff, Private Practice borrows heavily from other, better medical dramedies, often coming off forced or overly wacky.

Tv Season Info

In the first seriesof this "Grey's Anatomy" spin-off, ob-gyn and neonatal surgeon Addison (Kate Walsh) leaves Seattle Grace Hospital and heads to California to work alongside two of her old friends, exes Naomi (Audra McDonald) and Sam (Taye Diggs), at Oceanside Wellness Center, a co-op private practice. Their reunion is a happy one, but Naomi and Sam didn't tell the other doctors in the co-op -- Pete (Tim Daly), Violet (Amy Brenneman) and Cooper (Paul Adelstein) -- that they were hiring Addison, so tension develops. Before long, Addison and Pete get on each other's nerves and then develop a mutual attraction; and pals Violet and Cooper embark on a friends-with-benefits relationship.

Critic Reviews for Private Practice: Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (16)

It's clear there is still work to be done in defining the characters and setting an overall tone.

February 4, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The patients' stories are more interesting than the cooked-up relationships between the doctors, and that's a malady that may be hard to cure.

February 4, 2020 | Full Review…

The worst thing about Private Practice is that it officially marks the loss of the Addison we knew and liked.

September 26, 2007 | Full Review…

The worst part is what continues to be done to Addison in the misguided quest to make her more deserving of her own show.

September 26, 2007 | Full Review…

Prognosis for Private Practice: good.
