Quotes

Daly, Tim: What's wrong with flirting?

The Pilot of Private Practice
16 November 2017 | by catmankellomSee all my reviews

I did not watch Private Practice. I have no intention of watching Private Practice. This whole episode was just weird and kind of cringe for me. I don't mind Addison as a character and I was excited that the episode was going to focus around her but this wasn't a Grey's Anatomy episode with intense plot lines and charming humor. No, it was a Private Practice episode. The show about snobby rich people who happen to be doctors.
