I watched Grey’s Anatomy for a long time and was there when Private Practice first started.  I still can’t believe that Private Practice is on it’s fifth season! Private Practice: The Complete Fifth Season is available for purchase in stores and online, retailing for $39.99.


Relive all the excitement, tragedies and triumphs of ABC’s Private Practice: The Complete Fifth Season.  With this 5-disc collection, you won’t miss a single episode of TV’s hottest series, from the creator of Grey’s Anatomy.  Addison and her family at the practice face a whole new set of challenges as Addison decides she wants to have a baby, with or without Sam.  Pete’s health scare puts a strain on his marriage to Violet, Charlotte’s past comes back to haunt her and Amelia succumbs to her destructive habits.  Plus, with the arrival of an attractive new doctor (Benjamin Bratt) and the discovery of Cooper’s illegitimate son, the doctors’ relationships are pushed to the limit.  Bring home every moment of the show’s landmark fifth season – complete with never-before-seen bonus features.  It’s primetime drama at its very best!

This season was awesome!  I found myself crying on quite a few occasions, as I watched some of my favorite characters going through real-life type situations.  The most powerful episodes were with Addison’s maternal situation, with Cooper’s son’s mother, and with Amelia’s difficult decision regarding her pregnancy and childbirth.  It was an awesome season and I can’t wait to watch Season Six on DVD!  A big thanks to ABC Studios for this DVD review opportunity!

    Ellie teared up a few times watching this show just like you! Although I’m not a huge fan of shows like this, I will concede that they have more substance than all those violent “shoot ’em up” stuff on tv lately.

  2. I just included “Private Practice” in m 15 Bingeworthy Shows post that I wrote earlier this week. I loved Cooper and Charlotte and it was “Scandal” that got me to give Annoying Addison, another try and I’m glad I did.
