Question: So I know you were only going to give Private Practice a few episodes to turn around. What are your thoughts now? 

Answer: I'm still on the fence. On the plus side, the cases are getting more interesting, and Cooper and Violet are showing some serious Mer-Der potential. On the downside, Addison remains a shell of her former self, and KaDee Strickland's Doczilla Dr. King is being written with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer. I'm hanging in there, though at least long enough to see David Sutcliffe mix it up with Kate Walsh. I have a hunch these two are gonna be pretty great together.
