If I asked for a show of hands, how many of you could say that you were watching ABC’s Private Practice for the deep storylines? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Not a one. I will confess that I don’t watch the show because I love it’s “parent show” Grey’s Anatomy - because I hated the character of Addison Shepherd. I pretty much just watch it because I’ve had a crush on Tim Daly since his days on Wings. Seriously, if I ever cheated on my husband, this is the only man alive that it would be with. Don’t get all up in arms – he would cheat with Campbell Brown if he had the chance…
Anyway, because Private Practice has so far just been about the beautiful stars, I didn’t expect it to last long. Especially if it started going the way of Grey’s Anatomy - what with the CPR on the deer and all. But, according to Yahoo News, the writers have decided to make the show a little deeper – give it a little more substance.
For instance, one episode will be set up around the fact that
Or in another episode, “an obstetrician is conflicted about whether to deliver a premature baby she believes was conceived solely because the umbilical-cord blood could save the family's older, dying child.”
You know, real-life issues… I’m just kidding. I think it’s awesome that the writers are trying to think out of the box. They could continue revolving the episodes around whether or not the docs are getting laid on a regular basis, but this might be a better route to take. And since, “history proves that viewers respond to medical shows” , I’d say the show is going to do just fine.
