A Private Practice Primer For Season Four

at . Comments

Private Practice began as a sub-par Grey's Anatomy spinoff featuring Kate Walsh's Addison Montgomery Shepherd in 2007, but it has gradually earned our respect since.

A successful program with strong characters and its own appeal, we're legitimately looking forward to seeing what's next from the doctors of Oceanside/Pacific this fall.

Plenty of things have happened between now and then, with the Season Three finale providing some of the most memorable scenes in the Shonda Rhimes creation's history.

Wondering where things stand heading into the fourth season, which premieres after Grey's Anatomy Thursday, September 23? Get caught up with the series recap below:

I am so done with this show...Addison and Sam sleeping together. With her best friends ex-husband. Disappointing to say the least. Women need to have more respect and this show is sending a message that is shameful.

I adore Kate Walsh and would watch her in anything. This show isn't the best but it's enjoyable fluff.

Addison

Charlotte: Nothing you can say is going to make someone do something they don't want to do.
Cooper: Brandon needs her.
Charlotte: Brandon wants her. What Brandon needs is surgery and to find a woman that's not going to run out on him when the going gets tough.
