Turkish for Beginners has, so far only been shown in Germany, and Italy as well. Sweet, funny, and sometimes sad television series that centers around a German woman who is in a relationship with a Turkish police officer. He has a son and a daughter, and their mother is deceased. She likewise has a son and a daughter, and when they decide to move in together, there is much chaos and confusion, as cultures collide and love develops between the young Lena, and her stepbrother, Cem. "Turkisch für Anfanger" is a colorful and creative show, fast-paced and never boring. It only ran for 3 seasons, but there are currently DVD's available for the series. Unfortunately there are no subtitles for other languages, but that might change if this show ever gets the attention it deserves! For those living outside of Germany, the most interesting thing about this show is seeing how the Türkisch and German cultures exist together in the city of Berlin. When watching this show, one can forget that racism exists. Very sweet and special program!
