Private Practice > Private Practice Review: "Did You Hear What Happened to Charlotte King?" > Comments Page 3
I am really concerned about the fact that she is not telling the police a crime was committed. How could she let this happen to someone else? Sure her blood is all over him (DNA evidence), but the police should have been there, taking a statement. This happens too many times in real life - rape goes unreported - that it is a dis-service to perpetuate the idea that it's ok to not report. I thought hospitals were required to report attacks like this to the police.
This was by far one of the best episodes of PP! Kadee Strickland did an AMAZING job! I was so horrified for her. I can't imagine the strength she had to play her character so realistically! Great job to all the actors! Way to bring to light a horrible tragedy, such as rape, and the effects it has on everyone.
This episode was a total masterpiece. Frustrating/emotional/real/disturbing/genuine and generally perfectly horrific.
I hope they get awards for this - it's hard for rape to be done in a way that isn't playing it down (like most attempts) but isn't too graphic (like the rape scene in This is England '86) and this was written just right I think.
Excellent job with the writing and the acting. However, very difficult to watch, especially the flashbacks. I hope the story arc provides the Private Practice team with several awards.
I've been on and off with this show since it first started airing and I missed all in the family and I had no idea this was coming ( wasn't paying attention to the spoilers) but the last scene where Charlotte was remembering the rape was so disturbing, and so real I applaud the writing staff for being brave and delving through this. Unlike Naomi on 90210 this story is much more believable and gut wrenching that its so incredible. I was so disturbed. And knowing this happened to Charlottle, whose sexuality is one of her foremost qualities is so... wow :O I'm glad I didn't ruin this episode/storyline for myself.
I never seen a situation like this played out so realistic on television. I'm not at all someone who cries over tv programs, but this one hit me pretty hard. I really found myself feeling sick when watching te last scene, the actual rape. It says a lot about the amazing actors and an amazing writer and staff.
@Dr.CerrenoMD: It's kind of harsh to call this a "boost" to the show don't you think?
I think the whole cast did an amazing job. Especially KaDee. It was such a painful episode to watch. But an important story to tell. Charlotte and Violet are my favourite characters. I am curious as to how Charlotte will move forward (because she is so strong and this is a devastating experience). And I wonder how Violet can help (being a vet an all). Cooper actually really made me cry. He was amazing. Had a lot of repect for Addison, Pete and Sheldon too.
I think it was really interesting they picked that particular actor to play the rapist. A previous beloved character from the Buffy series. If they had picked anyone else or a nobody I've never seen before...it would have been easier to simply only feel hate for the rapist. But I have to admit that I felt conflicted at times. Agreed, I only want justice and his character to be severely punished for what he did to Charlotte...but I also had dangerous moments and would feel so sad watching his scenes with Sheldon and think
I love love love~! this episode! i think that KaDee Strickland did an amazing job at informing and bringing to people's attention that this DOES happen and that the victims need help and don't always know how to ask. It was frusterating that Sheldon was interagating the guy that raped Charolette and had no idea what was going on or that this guy hurt one of his friends. I think that this will come out and that it will turn everyone's world upside down! Especially Cooper! Cooper is going to feel even worse about this after he finds out! I hope that something good comes out of this and that the man who attacked Charolette is put behind bars... or castrated! I hope that Shonda will continue to make this as authentic as she has in the rest of the season or as long as this haunts Charolette (likely forever)
It was a gripping, amazing episode. Charlotte is by far my favorite character, and the way it's being treated... very well done.
Amazing performance by the entire cast, but especially KaDee. She is absolutely a wonderful actress. This episode was very hard to watch but extremely powerful and I applaud Shonda Rhimes for taking risks with her shows. They obviously pay off!
Omg! I cannot wait for next week. She probably is in denial. Which is why she won't admit it. Pp just the the boost it needed!
I LOVED THIS EPISODE!
All these characters emotions going through the air with confusion and shocking jaw drops.
I am actually surprised that Addison kept this private from everyone. Even Sam.
I especially enjoyed Charlotte's speech on how it feels to be raped and how it is nothing like "a girl sitting in shower holding her legs closed thinking about what happened well a violin plays in the background".
She really did pull it off when some other people had doubts about Stricklands performance in this very serious topic.
All I can say is well done KaDee, I look forward to next weeks episode.
