Watch series Private Practice season 5 online for freeA kind of spin-off series called "Grey's Anatomy", where the main character is a wonderful doctor named Addison Forbes Montgomery. She moved to Santa Monica, where she began her new life. Addison is a fairly well-known surgeon. After abandoning her career in Seattle, a failed marriage with Derek Shepard, and an unsettled relationship with Mark Sloan, she heads to Los Angeles, with its sunniest climate and more promising opportunities. Here Addison has to meet again with his fellow medical school friends, Sam and Naomi Bennet. She now works with them at the magnificent Oceanside Wellnes Center. Naomi acts as a midwife and hormone specialist, as well as the main owner of the clinic. Sam, in this case, is a therapist and part-time co-owner. His self-teaching publications were able to glorify him among ordinary people and endow him with the status of a "medical guru". Not so long ago, Naomi and Sam divorced, but they have to coexist for the sake of common practice and a daughter named Maya. But, in fairness, it is worth noting that their relationship is also very problematic to call friendly. Doctor Cooper Friedman is an excellent pediatrician who cannot decide in any way in his personal life and suffers constant fiasco, constantly turning his eyes to the wrong women. Dating carried out through the Internet, constantly end in failure. Cooper turns to his friend, psychiatrist Violet Turner, for advice and consolation, who is also not particularly successful in matters of the heart. Pete Wilder is a specialist in alternative medicine. Quite confident and attractive enough. Pete has no problems with women, and he was already able to entangle Addison in his networks. Despite all the attraction, confidence and, to some extent, even self-confidence, he can not get away from the death of his wife, although eight years have passed. It is worth noting that from that moment on, he himself did not have any serious relationship. But together with Addison, perhaps he himself will try to start his life from a new leaf.
The finale of the series crept up unnoticed. I was surprised and upset at the same time. Nevertheless, the final series diluted these feelings a little, leaving behind a feeling of mild and even pleasant melancholy. A worthwhile ending. For a good show, it probably should be. Without an obvious removal of the brain and unnecessary riddles. Simple and clear, where all the ends are very skillfully and clearly drawn. I can't remember exactly when I started watching "Private Practice", but, of course, it was not without "Grey's Anatomy". There would be no "Anatomy", I would not even watch, and, perhaps, I simply would not know about the existence of "Praktika". In fact, this is a novelty for me when there is a separation of one series into another and its transformation into an independent project with its own audience and its own energy. What is Private Practice? It is impossible not to notice that there was no drama or scenes of violence in it. Still, Shonda Rhimes (for those in the know) remains Shonda Rhimes. And, nevertheless, in "Practice" the tragic and cruel scenes were constantly followed by relaxing, and sometimes even life-affirming moments. Most likely, Shonda just occasionally rested on the "Practice" from "Anatomy".Well, the viewer only had to relax with her. Somehow, at the stage of full maturity of this series, I saw the following statement on the Web: "Private practice": - this is a lounge series. Drawing analogies with a musical term, this is something quite light and pleasant, not requiring special sensory and mental costs. Apparently, this is quite rightly noted, because, being a compassionate person and shedding more than one liter of tears over the fate of the heroes, this is how I presented this project. I’m not ready to claim that this is the best medical series in large part because I’ve seen the beloved House, Dr. Monroe, and the early Grey's Anatomy, and perhaps nothing else. Therefore, I am not an expert in such matters. But I am absolutely sure that against the general background, Private Practice takes a fairly strong position. To complete the whole picture, I will say only a few words about the main characters: Edison Forbes-Montgomery. Neonatologist. How I disliked her in Grey's Anatomy, and how I got into her in Private Practice. In addition to the fact that Edison herself is incomparable, her character also evokes maximum sympathy. How much poor Edison had to endure in order to finally get her cherished happiness. Not in all cases she was a diligent girl, did not always do the right things, did not always choose the right people, but she always went towards her goal until she reached it. Cooper Friedman. Pediatrician. This is my favorite character. And, I will make a reservation right away, I was pleased with the changes it underwent during the course of the entire series. Without going into details, I can only say one thing, he changed one model of behavior to the completely opposite. This is a very harmonious hero, since his image is quite well spelled out. Most importantly, what you should learn about Dr. Friedman, he is ready to go to any crime, just to help his patients. Charlotte Keane. The head physician of the hospital. At first, one might get the impression that she was added to this series only to become a "plug" in any situation. Cold, principled and callous, Dr. King keeps the entire staff of this hospital in tight-knit gloves. Pete Wilder. Alternative medicine doctor. Also my favorite character. Handsome man with a broken psyche due to the mother of a drug addict. He lives on impulses and is always ready to help. Sam Bennett. Physician, former cardiac surgeon. The sweet dream of all girls, a kind of "chocolate bunny". Athletic handsome man, humorist and writer. However, behind the impeccable model appearance there are extraordinary troubles and "cockroaches in the head". Niomi Bennett. Specialist in the field of reproductive endocrinology, obstetrics and gynecology. Solves problems with candy. Perhaps this is her most striking feature. In addition, she does not yet accept abortion. Violet Turner. Psychiatrist and part-time writer. She helps people find happiness and understand themselves, although she herself, apparently, is not capable of this. An excellent psychiatrist. She does not feel the danger, which often costs her dearly. Sheldon Wallace. Another psychiatrist. Fails over and over again in a relationship, while remaining a great friend and a very reliable person. To put it more simply, one of the coolest characters. Amelia Shepard. Neurosurgeon. Here, one has only to say that Amelia is just "hot" in this series, and everything will become clear. Plus, she has not only natural beauty and charm, but also goes through many things that temper the spirit of a real fighter in her. Jake Riley. Neonatologist. Another character from the category "dream of all women". The presence of devils and demons inside does not prevent him from being a good person. Dell Parker. Nurse and receptionist. At first, he plays the role of an "errand guy", but thanks to his perseverance, he becomes a different person, without losing his kindness. One of the most positive characters in the series. And in conclusion, I would like to say that by the final season, "Private Practice" has greatly outgrown "Grey's Anatomy", which is now underway. Most likely, Shonda closed the Practice in order to restore Anatomy and improve its ratings. Nevertheless, the fact is, the "child" has surpassed its "parent".
