"In Which Addison Finds the Magic" Season 1, Episode 3

Well I don't know about you but I won't be eating cake anytime soon. And that stinks because I really like cake. Not sure how I feel about Dell trying to win Naomi's affections through his grandmother's baked goods but I do know what it's like to want an "in" with someone you care about. He's definitely barking up the wrong tree though and she really gave it to him in the end. Poor Naomi. I want to feel bad for her but she's really just wallowing in her own misery. Why won't she try to reconnect with Sam? And more Taye Diggs please! Not nearly enough Sam scenes tonight. Maybe my memory is fuzzy, but I don't recall ever learning the reason for their split. Shout it out in the comments if I missed something. If I didn't miss it, I want to find out! But back to the wallowing. Wow how old was that message Violet kept listening to? Watching her try to help Sad Sack all the while knowing what a "weak" person she is in love as well was scary. If it's one thing Dr. Melfi on The Sopranos taught us it's that even shrinks need shrinks every now and then. Violet needs to find one. And fast! Sad Sack's wife was the lady from Herman's Head! I loved that show. I couldn't tell you details from even one episode but I know I liked it. I think. The newlywed storyline worked but the blue children situation kind of fell flat with me. The fertilizer poisoned them because they were around the toxic fumes so much, leading me to believe they had to be playing in their secret den a lot! How long were these children out of the yard and out of their mother's care? She never noticed that all four children were gone? Cooper was wrong about it not being negligence. She should hire that nanny back. I felt bad for the virgin. All that waiting and when she was finally ready to let go her hoohah didn't cooperate. If the Private Practice writers were trying to recreate the vajajay phenomenon with hoohah I think they came up short. Just putting that out there. But I liked how Pete and Addison paired up to help them get their magic, despite their lack of faith that magic really exists. Why does Addison work so hard to push him away? She didn't seem to have trouble getting into relationships back in Seattle. It looked like Pete had his own relationship drama. The scenes at the grave were very telling. Geez, this practice is full of people with issues. It's a good thing they can heal others because no one seems to be able to heal themselves. Is it bad that the entire show is full of people with problems? Don't we need someone with a stable existence? I understand the need for drama but I don't want to drown in it. Maybe I'm searching for things that are wrong with this show because I want to make it better. If I take a step back, though, I see that I'm enjoying it. I guess it's like Pete said, nothing is perfect. For more Private Practice, check out our Online Video Guide. show less
