Private Practice Season 6 Report Card: A-

at . Comments

As we prepare to say goodbye to Private Practice Season 6 and therefore, of course, the series as a whole, let’s take a look back at where this unusual season has gone so far.

With Shonda Rhimes and company mixing things up via character-centric installments, viewer reaction has been mixed. Where do you stand on the opening 10 episodes? Read through the following Report Card and then cast your vote...

In Bed with CharCoop

Best Character: Charlotte. I didn’t think it was possible, but I’ve somehow managed to fall even more in love with KaDee Strickland’s portrayal. She’s always made us laugh and cry, but her pregnancy has completely transformed her into an even more dynamic fireball that keeps us on our toes. Plus, CharCoop’s journey has been an epic aspect of Private Practice. Undoubtedly, I will miss them the most.

Worst Character: Sam. It just seemed like there wasn’t much of a story to tell for Sam if he wasn’t with Addison. His episode was also definitely a miss. More on that soon, though.

Best Episode: It’s a tie between “Apron Strings” and “Georgia on My Mind." While we saw Addie overcome challenges with Henry’s biological mother, she also got engaged to Jake and now a wedding is on the way. Meanwhile, Charlotte totally rocked her installment with numerous unforgettable Private Practice quotes.

Worst Episode: “The Next Episode." Talk about snoozefest! This may have honestly been the worst episode in Private Practice history. Blame it on my distaste of reality television, but Sam deserved a much better storyline.

Best Guest Appearance: Marisol Nichols as Jake’s deceased wife, Lily. She was phenomenal on “The World According to Jake."

Hopes for 2013: Of course, I’d love nothing more than a strong sendoff for our favorite doctors. Let’s hope the Seaside Wellness doctors end up content with their lives. As a huge fan of flash forwards, I wouldn’t mind seeing where and how everyone ends up. I’m super excited to meet the rest of CharCoop’s triplets, witness the Jaddison wedding and the return of Audra McDonald as Naomi.

Overall Grade: A-

YOUR turn, TV Fanatics. What grade would you give Private Practice Season 6?


this season is the worst ever off private practice i,m give grade D
dont like addison and jake together al that jaddison was to fast
she break up with sam for 3 month the man that she love she let jake move in and-
proposal to him a man that she just meet that is not love just someone she need to
have a baby with she still love sam end was more closer with him ,,,,,,
if you love someone that much the feeling never go that fast jaddison love is fake
that is my opinion addisam fan forever tell the end off private practice


Can't wait for Amelia episode! :) Even though I think it's stupid to do this already, I would rate this season A/A- so far. :)


Folks, I know that there are only three episodes left, but I didn't want Private Practice to be left out of the "Mid Season Report Cards." Plus, it's always fun to sit back and analzye the show especially when it's on hiatus for now.


All due respect, but isn't this a little too soon for a report card?


I really hope Naomi is in the entire finale and just isn't written in for about 5 minutes. I will be devastated and if she doesn't get any real screen time regardless of her being a guest star.


I watched the first two episodes of the season and then deleted the recording from my DVR. Although Charlotte is one of my favorite characters - Pete was also a favorite. Without him I lost interest in the show. Couldn't stand another season of watching Violet wallow. Without Tim Daly there was no good reason to watch.


I agree with saj14saj because you can't rate it yet since its not over. However, so far I think it deserves an A-/A. I say this because some episodes were not good at all!!!!!! Like the Sam episode was horrendous (sorry Shonda) it was so dumb to bring in these characters and just develop a storyline for one episode. Like why give Sam a whole episode when he didn't need it. Also, since I'm not a Jaddison fan (unusual, I know!) I didn't like those two characters together this season. When Addison chose Jake and when he proposed I was yelling "NOOOOO!!!!" But the Charcoop storyline this season is absolutely fantastic. I love Kadee so much and triplets is triple the fun! Especially with Charlotte! Throughout this whole show we have seen so many different sides to Charlotte: tough, sad, lonely, desperate, hurt, pregnant, funny, motherly and so many more. The only thing about this season that bothers me is that we don't see all the characters in each episode. Like I'm the biggest Caterina fan ever so not seeing her so much in this season so far is really annoying, but I'm excited to see her in the next episode. From what I read I heard she is going to do the same back thing that Jake did to her when she was in labor for Charlotte! So hopefully Amelia will address what happened after her baby died and discuss that more because I felt that last season's finale didn't conclude things for me. I wanted to see Amelia look back on the situation and feel pain (cruel, I know, but good television). I'm glad the last two episodes will be normal ones and not based on each character or hopefully it's not like the first episode, because that was kind of annoying...


I don't know how you can rate the season before it is complete. The finale will be crucial. I couldn't give the progress so far a grade of A-, because of the Sam episode. I had to turn that one off it was so bad. I realize you have to take a risk to get a win, but that one should have never gotten out of editing.

Private Practice Quotes

Charlotte: My mom always says God doesn't give with both hands. You're young, beautiful, brilliant. There has to be something you can't have.
Amelia: Some days I'd give that all up.
Charlotte: That's just the craving talking. The longer you go without a drink...
Amelia: I drank at your wedding. I thought it was ginger ale. I spit it out.
Charlotte: OK, since then?
Amelia: Nothing, but I can't stop thinking about it.
Charlotte: It was an accident. Don't let a slip turn into a fall. Get your butt to a meeting.

Having a conscience is brutal.
