Tread Perilously — Private Practice: The Next Episode

Shonduary continues as Tread Perilously takes a look at the Season Six Private Practice episode “The Next Episode.”

Dr. Sam Bennett’s plan to shoot a reality show pilot at the practice takes a left turn when his mother and her former boss, Raymond, come in for a consult. Sam sees more than he wants — as do the reality show cameras — and it leads to him discover Raymond is more than just a friend of the family. Will it destroy the pilot or will Sam learn a valuable life lesson during the production? Also, Brian Benben appears.

Erik and Justin debate the spelling of “Shonduary” and Justin extols the virtues of Ladyhawke. Erik’s dislike of Brian Benben gets explored. The pair also decide they like Private Practice, so they keep detouring into Star Wars discussions. They also dissect some of the good writing in “The Next Episode” and point out a few of its directorial shortcomings. Justin’s incredibly obscure sports joke fails to land, but he also breaks down why Private Practice‘s cast is hotter than the Grey’s Anatomy ensemble. Alfre Woodard, Richard Roundtree, and L. Scott Caldwell prove to be MVPs, of course, and Erik advocates for alternative film cuts. Also, Justin and Erik begin workshopping their “Sexy Palpatine” jokes.
