Always Progressing and Always Realistic
2 February 2015 | by mserhat97See all my reviews

There is a reason why valley of the wolves is dubbed as the most legendary TV Show in Turkey of all time. The way it combines reality, action, and even comedy is unlike any other TV show. The way Valley of the Wolves Ambush predicts the future and reflects in in the show with potential solutions to contemporary problems is stunning. Polat Alemdar and company does a great job in addressing problems and solving them. Recently, the show has even created characters that resemble known terrorist leaders. It has been said that a lot of research is done before each episode is written and that is truly apparent in all of the episodes.

I truly hope this show goes on until all of the problems of Turkey have been resolved.
