It's amazing how much I grew to dislike Sam as a character during his time with Addison. He became angrier and I could not pin point the source of his anger or his rash judgments. This episode sought to humanize Sam in a way that had not been done before.
Reality series ok. It was not horrible, in fact it seemed the only reason Sam agreed to do it, was to establish an identity within himself. He seems to have lost foot on what life is to him. So in this case it worked.
Sam is too much for me. How out of character of him, as he is always so serious..can't believe that he agreed to do that. Wish Addison would get over him...he wanted nothing to do with her having a baby, and now that Henry is here she somewhat expects him to change? Stick with a good thing..Jake! And they have to resolve that little missing child situation, and fast. With only the few episodes left, I hope all loose ends are tied up in a bow..and not a knot!!
I got a 'No reality episode' rule to, i just dont like that the camera always moves, its SOO annoying.
BTW, I wasn't annoyed at all with Violet this week, which is a rarity, so I am glad that the reviewer didn't have the VAS up either. And I loved Amelia's monologue during the latter part of the show.
Before anyone is critical of this episode of Private Practice, they should be made to watch the debacle that was this weeks episode of Castle, which was also a "reality TV" show. Most of the actors on Castle appeared to think making faces and mugging/overacting/chewing scenery was somehow entertaining instead of just embarrassing. The plot was thin, the acting horrible and in general, I think most people would wish to have that hour of their life back.
In comparison, the Sam reality TV show stunt wasn't half bad. Taye Diggs is a beautiful man, and his smile is just gorgeous, plus, he's got a sexy voice and he is a fine actor, so I didn't bat an eye at him having a reality show. Alfrie Woodard is also a great actress, so I found their scenes beautifully done. But I thought Coop's greed for a show because of the money he'd make per episode embarrassingly immature and stupid, especially for a pediatrician who makes, I'm sure, at least six figures.
I didn't see the episode yet but I can say there is a Christina Annoyance Scale which now indicates a 5 out of 5.
@Jarrod Shonda herself said that it would be a happy story and I've just been hoping that she has the same definition of happiness as everyone else. And this might sound unbelievable, but I'm predicting (and hoping) for 2 girls and a boy as well! It might seem too ideal for them to have 2 of each but a girl can hope. :)
@Caitlyn: I too was sketchy about why she was so large, but I'm willing to ignore it seeing as the quicker her pregnancy advances, the quicker the Cooplets will be here! I read somewhere that Shonda is going to give Cooper and Charlotte a good pregnancy, but Shonda has been known to change her mind on more than one occasion. I'm honestly so excited to know the sex; I predict 2 girls and a boy.
@ Jarrod I saw that spoiler as well and it definitely has me excited! I was shocked with how big Charlotte's belly was in this episode - especially because Sam said that the little girl went missing from the hospital a few days ago. A bit of an inconsistency there but I was just happy to see Charlotte and her pregnant belly :) At first I was really scared that the season would deal with Charlotte and Cooper having to go through selective reduction (cause of Shonda's pregnancy track record) but with all the things I've been hearing about their respective episodes I think we've got a lot of fluffy CharCoop ahead :)
The worst episode ever!
For the first time I fast forwarded through most of the episode, just cant care less about Sam! His character was ruined in season 4 and bringing more of his family members is not gonna help.
Waiting forward to next episodes though, even so I dont want any trouble for Addy with Henry:(
