The events of the series revolve around a psychological clinic, and the stories and attitudes of a group of psychiatric patients who frequent it, and who lived different events between pain and joy, narrated by one of the psychiatrists who own the clinic, supervising their follow-up and trying to treat them. It is reported that "The Red Room" is a new Turkish series that belongs to the social drama that deals with real events and issues that have already occurred. It is adapted from a curious book entitled "The Red Room".
It is one of the first attempts of turkish television to bring the character type of the psychologist as a protagonist on the small screen. With that comes the framework of psychology with which turkish societal problems are looked at more closely, domestic violence, childhood traumas and so on. There are many interesting patients who serve as the storytellers whose childhoods serve as the stories told each episode. The main character who is the psychologist who listens to them serves as a proxy for the audience, as the neutral (normal) character through whom the audience connects with the patients. It is pretty well done, the cinematography is unusually high quality for a turkish series and the camera work/cuts stand out as well, making it one of the highlights of 2020 turkish TV. Not too excellent are the dialogues themselves since they are neither very original given the narrative context and can be cheesy at times.
