Surprisingly interesting and plain old fashion Good TV
25 August 2017 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

Really enjoyed this series which I found on NETFLIX - and being a lover of these 'who done it' series that are intelligent, well crafted, well casted, good scenery and for the most part can't out guess the writers

  • I sat for 4 days and watched the entire series.


It was well worth it!! Yes it rambled on and certain episodes could have been a bit 'tighter' but that was not a distraction to say the least. What a great way to be introduced to Turkish creative TV - tro be immersed in their language and culture and traditions, to see the landscape and scenery, loved every moment of it.

I felt as I watched this that I was able to touch something of Turkey - the cast was great in fact can't think of one actor who I would replace. The story line touched on certain topics one could consider 'taboo' in Turkey most especially with the political situation of 2017.

I don't know if this same series could be made today. And I'm grateful to Netflix for having this series on their programs. Now looking forward to watching more Turkish productions.

Without giving anything away - the script gave us the opportunity to learn a bit about Turkish history and the script also was very Middle Eastern in it's romantic themes, writings and dreamy dialogue/voice overs. It honors Turkish culture and gave us a glimpse into modern day Turkish traditions and culture.

Thank you for this! Can't wait to watch more and find these actors on other Netflix programs.
