From the creators of Grey’s Anatomy, comes the fourth season of ABC’s sexy medical drama Private Practice, which follows the life of Dr. Addison Montgomery (the always charming Kate Walsh) as they deal with the struggles that life throws at them while slaving away as doctors at the Oceanside Wellness Group.
This season in particular has one of the most acclaimed Private Practice episodes ‘Did You Hear What Happened To Charlotte King?” which features Buffy alum Nicholas Brendon as the man who rapes Dr. King, (played by KaDee Strickland) which leaves a gaping hole into the life of Charlotte, and drags the season through an emotional roller coaster as those slowly around her soon begin to find out what happens to her, made worse by the fact that Brendon shows up a few episodes later to wreak even more havoc on the Oceanside Wellness Group.
In terms of extras and the specs on the DVDs, the DVDs themselves are pretty good, featuring Dolby Digital Stereo, and the digital transfer itself is also pretty good. The DVDs, like the show, are shot and screened in Widescreen (1.78:1) – Enhanced for HD Television, and features Spanish and French subtitles. While there are bonus content such as outtakes and extras of little behind the scenes clips and deleted scenes, the real gem of the disc is the ‘An Inside Look: The Violation of Charlotte King’ which investigates what research she (Strickland) did to do a horrific event like this with compassion, and respect to the real life victims of this crime. Being that I am always intrigued by Shonda Rhimes, I always appreciate commentary, but seems this was not on the menu, if not by her or the other writers, but perhaps by the higher ups at ABC. Still, definitely worth a look for any PP fan, or for those who want a stunning hour of television such as the episode ‘Did You Hear What Happened To Charlotte King?’, then this DVD set is for you.
