What started off as a Grey's Anatomy spin-off about Dr. Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) moving to Los Angeles, Private Practice is already approaching its third season.
With the new season right around the corner, Private Practice: The Complete Second Season is in stores now. In addition to all 22 episodes, the six-disc set includes the following:
Extended Episodes – While the episodes don't feature audio commentary, there are two extended episodes ("Nothing to Fear" and "Crime and Punishment" for your viewing pleasure.
Patient Confidentially: Examining Season 2 – The Private Practice cast discusses the theme for the season, which focused on the questions doctors have to answer on a daily basis and the moral and ethical decisions they are faced with.
Life Through The Lens: The Pictures of Chris Lowell – When actor Chris Lowell is not playing William "Dell" Parker, he's likely traveling the world with his camera. Lowell shares some of the wonderful photographs he has shot over the years, including candid images of the Private Practice cast. It's worth watching not just for the pictures but also for the hilarious bit between Lowell and Taye Diggs.
Deleted Scenes – There are 23 deleted scenes that feature audio commentary from Private Practice creator Shonda Rhimes and executive producer Betsy Beers. The two ladies explain why they decided not to use each of the scenes.
Bloopers – Walsh has the misfortune of being the focus for a majority of the outtakes including an incident with a killer bug that had a eye on her and her lunch.
Season two is the first full season of Private Practice after just nine episodes in 2007-2008. The crossover episodes with Grey’s Anatomy were a great idea to spice things up on both shows. The series has evolved into more than just Dr. Montgomery and provides a different insight on the lives of doctors than Grey's.
