It is hard to say that that Aci Hayat was a perfect TV Show, because definitely it wasn't. It did really have some huge and quite obvious demerits, like poor acting of some characters, like extended, never ending, exaggerated storyline and etc. But, still I cannot say that Aci Hayat does not deserve to be watched. Personally I watched it with great pleasure from the beginning till the end, maybe due to the portion of tension that presents throughout the Show and chains you to the story, maybe it is because of demonstration of really big and rare love between the main characters, due to what you start to suffer together with them, I don't know exactly what, but definitely there is something in this show because of which you cant just stay indifferent to it. So, I advice you to watch it, I am sure you will not regret.
