Private Practice 2×14 — “Second Chances”: What happened to Wyatt? Did I miss an episode or something? Because all I heard was a throwaway line from Archer about Wyatt leaving to chase “pharmaceutical dollars”, which is why the other practice needs a replacement. What the hell was that all about? I thought Wyatt was supposed to be Addie’s next love interest, but I guess not. Oh, well.
I wasn’t really feeling this episode. The patient stories just seemed like they were thrown in there for the hell of it, and the doctors’ stories were just all over the place. I don’t care much for about Violet’s pregnancy. If none of the involved parties wanted children, why were they having unprotected sex in the first place? They aren’t teenagers, after all, so there’s really no excuse for something like this.
And why does Cooper have to move in with Violet in order to be there for her? He can be extremely supportive without actually living with her, so this seems like kind of a strange thing to do. The way Cooper broke the news to Charlotte was weird, too. Why would he say it that way (“I’m moving in with Violet”) instead of, “Violet’s pregnant, so I’m going to stay with her for a while to help out.” That better be cleared up quickly!
I’m looking forward to the crossover episode, but after that, I’m really going to have to reevaluate my feelings about Private Practice. It’s not as consistently good as I hoped it would be, so I’m thinking about ditching it — especially since Thursday nights are just jam-packed with shows I watch.
House 5×13 — “Big Baby”: This was another subpar episode of House, as far as I’m concerned. I don’t know why the Foreman/Thirteen romance is getting so much screen time, particularly since the characters have zero chemistry together. And isn’t Thirteen supposed to be a lesbian? Why is she even with Foreman to begin with? Meh, I guess she’s supposed to be bi…
I’m glad the whole experiment with having Cameron in charge came to a mercifully quick end. There’s just no way I’d be able to deal with her playing games week in and week out. She’s good as House’s underling, but just not believable at all as his boss.
Nothing else from the episode stands out at this point. I miss the good old days when House was “must see TV” for me!
