Ever since Kate Walsh (Addison Montgomery) left “Grey’s Anatomy,” I have become hooked on “Private Practice” and have developed a love for the show and it’s characters! I really enjoyed the show but found the season finale completely disturbing! Oh my gosh! I can’t believe they ended it where they did! I am excited to see what’s in store for the next season.

On September 15, 2009, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment is releasing “Private Practice: The Complete Second Season” on DVD. “Private Practice” is another medical drama from the creator of “Grey’s Anatomy,” Shonda Rhimes.

The show takes place at Oceanside Wellness Group in Los Angeles, California. The cast includes Kate Walsh (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Tim Daly (“The Nine”), Audra McDonald (“A Raisin in the Sun”), Paul Adelstein (“Prison Break”), KaDee Strickland (American Gangster), Chris Lowell (“Veronica Mars”), Taye Diggs (“Rent”), and Amy Brenneman (“Judging Amy”).
