This show airs in Turkey where there are a lot of censorship. The committee is really conservative and they tend to censor all kinds of sexual activity(mostly even kissing), insulting, blood etc. Yet, life's itself has a lot of these situations. And this show clearly has the purpose of being natural. They use insultive words just as all Turkish people do. The characters are all like one of us. They are not made up nor irrational. And this novel based show, is the best of it's genre in Turkey by far. The leading role is quite charismatic, reckless, smart and good-hearted character but he's still perfectly natural. he doesn't use unrealistically expensive phones, he doesn't wear different clothes in each scene. They focus on the story which consists of crime scenes with secrets and enigmas in Behzat C's psychological situation and history.
