Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice Season Premier Thoughts

I am not sure how I feel about last nights premiers of the big Thursday shows. In part I felt they were a little too depressing, especially since I was so looking forward to having them back. However given the horrible ways both seasons ended last year, I guess we couldn’t expect everything to be back to normal.

On both shows, in part one of the ways they were striving to get back to normal was with season premier weddings. At the same time, on each show the wedding had neigh sayers. On “Grey’s” Christina and Owen tied the not, even though Meredith had her issues with the marriage. On “Practice” it was Cooper who had issues with Pete and Violet’s marriage.

There were some happy developments on each show though. Callie and Arizona are back together on Grey’s, and The Chief is back after Derek decided he hated the job and quit.

Alex is back to being an ass after being shot. I don’t know if that’s a good thing, but if it means no more Alex and Lexie then it’s a good thing in my book. Here is hoping Mark and Lexie might work things out.

Meredith has yet to tell Derek about the miscarriage. From the spoilers that is coming up. Perhaps it will cool Mr. Speedy down a bit?

On “Practice” the off-again-on-again story with Sam and Addison is now just annoying me. They spent the whole episode apparent, with Addison planning to not be with him . . . then at the last minute were in the tub together. From the previews it looks like the show is intent on making them a couple. Thank god there are more people on this show, because I just don’t think they work.

The story about the guy with the kidney and the challenged brother was just heartbreaking. We could have done without death for one episode!

I did like Dink standing up to Naomi in this episode and stepping up. I also liked Cooper and Charlotte discussing how they’d still be “them” even though she was marrying Pete, and he was probably on his way to the altar with Charlotte.

Definitely interested in seeing where they take Derek’s sister Amelia! Also would like to see some resolution to the William-Fife-Naomi triangle.




  1. Dustin, you mentioned how heartbreaking the kidney transplant story was…what about the story about the dad forgetting the baby in the car??? So mad that PP had me in tears 15 minutes into the season. Love the show but would be happy to get a break from hearing about babies dying. Too sad.

  2. I think I’ve mastered blocking out the killing of kids by this show at this point!
