Tv Season Info

In the second seriesof this medical drama, Oceanside Wellness Center faces several problems, including unpaid debt and a nearby competitor called Pacific Wellcare. However, just because Oceanside Wellness and Pacific Wellcare are rival practices, that doesn't mean their doctors are off-limits romantically to each other: Cooper (Paul Adelstein) dates Charlotte (KaDee Strickland) and Violet (Amy Brenneman) dates Sheldon (Brian Benben). Meanwhile, Addison (Kate Walsh) gets a visit from her brother, Archer (Grant Show), who soon moves to town and winds up causing trouble for her, Naomi (Audra McDonald) and Sam (Taye Diggs); and Violent becomes pregnant and has to choose between two men in her life.

Critic Reviews for Private Practice Season 2

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (6)

Shonda Rhimes's Grey's Anatomy spinoff is a fill-in-the-blanks kind of drama that tells cliched stories all over again, with no imagination.

It's hard to imagine reinventing the concept of the doctor show. But in a way, that's what Private Practice sets out to do in its new-look second season - and it doesn't do a bad job.

Oct 1, 2008 | Full Review…

I'm still waiting for this overqualified cast to get material that allows them to act like grown-ups.

Oct 1, 2008 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

The return episode trudges along like a 44-min. chore

Oct 1, 2008 | Full Review…

In a reflection on the show itself, the practice is in trouble.

Oct 1, 2008 | Full Review…

Though it's better, Private Practice is not good enough.

Oct 1, 2008 | Full Review…

The newer show benefits enormously from its exceptional casting and emotional procedural subplots
