Private Practice on ABC is a medical drama that is a spin-off of Grey’s Anatomy. The series chronicles the life of Dr. Addison Montgomery, played by Kate Walsh, as she leaves Seattle Grace Hospital in order to join a private practice in Los Angeles. In season two, Sam and Naomi realize that they can no longer be friends, especially with the blossoming relationship between Cooper and Charlotte. At the end, Addison falles for a cardiothoracic surgeon Noah Barnes, who of course is married with child on the way. And of course in a Grey’s Anatomy-like twist, one of Addison’s patients is Barnes’ wife.
The show does touch upon some sensitive cultural issues. There was an episode about the issue of abortion, the sex re-assignment of a newborn, the sexual activity of a 12 year old, the switching of embryos for two mothers-to-be, and a young couple who later discovered they were siblings. It is that type of maverick storywriting by taking risks that not only gains viewers, but also the respect of those viewers. Season three is bound to have more risks taken by the writers and hopefully acted out well by Walsh and the rest of the cast.
