"In Which Dell Finds His Fight" Season 1, Episode 9

First rule of Fight Club - never talk about Fight Club. Second rule of Fight Club? Never let your grandson find you old, bloody and sweaty over an almost dead man. I so called it! It was either that or a very aggressive orgy. Sign me up for that nursing home. The Fight Club one, not the orgy one. In honor of this very cool storyline, I bring you tonight's.... (trumpet sounds) Hits & Misses List! Get it? Sigh. The Hits " Dell's grandfather Wendell (George Segal) and the "old man fight club", as Naomi put it. Not only was it cool to see the guy who knocked up Kirstie Alley in Look Who's Talking, but it was hilarious! Until Nate had a heart attack, that is. I really felt for Wendell. I'm sure it is rather boring in one of those places and his speech at the end about missing Dell's grandmother was heart-wrenching. He just wanted to feel alive again. We should all take his advice about fighting more (figuratively, of course) for what we want while we still have a chance! " The Newlyweds who couldn't seal the deal came back! That was unexpected and I liked the storyline. After everything they went through just to have sex, I was rooting for them to be able to have a kid. It all happened rather quick though...unless days were passing quicker than I noticed! They got the bad news, mulled over options, almost had the brother father the baby and pulled a single lively sperm out of the poor man's testicles in what seemed like the blink of an eye. For such great doctors, Naomi and Addison don't seem to have many other patients to see. I did like an old storyline coming back. I'd like to see more of that. " Officer Kevin Nelson. Frisk me, you fool! I loooooooooooove him! He is so stinkin' cute I don't know who to root for - him or Pete?? Oh well, I hope it takes Addison a long time to decide. " Charlotte & Cooper are hot! I'd like to see a lot more of this "dating" duo. Hopefully, we'll get to see another side of Charlotte. I want some vulnerability. Her barracuda side is wearing thin on me. The Misses " The baby class was stupid. I didn't get why Cooper had to take it from Charlotte to prove he was "bad cop" material. He will never win an argument with her. It felt rushed and out of place in an otherwise decent episode. Although, the guy who's fake baby looked like Chuckie cracked me up. "Wanna trade? I don't want to bond with Chuckie." " Sam & Naomi irked me tonight. Why the rush to put a label on their newly rekindled sex life? Why the pressure? Well, I guess they do have a kid...but still! I wanted to see them having some fun before it got all serious. " Dell was way out of line by confronting Sam. I know there are Dell and Naomi fans out there, but I am not one of them. He had no right to butt in, regardless of his feelings. And was it me, or was that kiss he planted on Naomi the most awkward thing ever? It was sweet and it's cute that he cares, but he's a child. Couldn't she be his mother? I could never see those two together. " No previews for next week most likely means this is the last episode we will see for awhile. Booooooooo! That's the biggest "miss" of them all. Do you think we were left with a reason to watch when the show finally returns? The Dell-Naomi-Sam and the Officer Kevin-Addison-Pete triangles are heating up, so that's something. I'll watch again, even if we have to wait until next fall. I won't be waiting and counting the days, but this show has promise and I am going to stick it out. I hope they rerun the series while we are on a strike-induced hiatus and the lack of new programming will gather some more viewers. Until then, spread the word about this show and check back in with me when new shows return. Bye for now. For more Private Practice, check out our Online Video Guide. show less
