The best Turkish TV series ever.
ulnoyman23 December 2004
Sasifelek Cikmazi is a hilarious, heart-warming, energetic TV series. It has an wonderful ensemble cast including some of the best actors in Turkey, and their talent is matched with the fascinating script of Mahinur Ergun. The story is simply the daily life in an old Istanbul neighborhood - 'Sasifelek Cikmazi'. I was always amazed how the producers rounded up so many good actors - and keep them together for so long on one set. The characters are so lifelike and real. Especially the performances of Derya Alabora, Fikret Kuskan, and Suzan Aksoy bring a fascinating energy into the production. It was produced by TRT - Turkish public television, which guarantees a high standard of production quality and subtle social responsibility. I believe it will be well-received in the Balkans, the Meditterranean and Eastern Europe, but it is not meant for a Nordic audience.

a neighborhood, or more than that

Once there was a small neighborhood , may the tale begin. I was wiped in the story very easily and became one of the fans in two weeks. It was funny, Derya Alabora was very funny , however it also made me cry several times on the other hand.I deeply remember Hasibe Erener's character, her hopeless and stuck in her family life and how her feeling hurt by watching other girls relations with boys... Füsun Demirel, Toprak Sergen and with all other characters, Şaşıfelek Çıkmazı was more than a neighborhood, it was like a little model of my country.It was a time that we all were young and beautiful... It was a time that all thing were able to corrected if we hold each other hands...It was a good time. It was a good thing to watch on TV...

Intelligence on the TV

It was the funniest TV-series, I ever watched. All the people living in Sasifelek Çikmazi were a little bit nuts! Life was pretty hard and never went like clockwork, maybe that was the real reason of the sense of humor in the neighborhood...

But it was much better while Mahinur Ergun was directing. After she transferred her mission of directing to Çagan Irmak, the difference was perceivable. Due to the fact that Mahinur Ergun kept writing for Sasifelek Çikmazi, the success continued anyway, but it was not the same for the ones, who watched Sasifek Çikmazi since its first episode...
