Turkish Coupling
27 January 2012 | by jedy-22See all my reviews

A lot better of the American Coupling TV series, quality close to British coupling. The best Turkish TV series ever made. I prefer watching this , instead of classical Nbc TV series like How I Met Your Mother. I hope the quality goes on. The series start with a flashback , where we see two babies, who are meant to be together forever , a classical oriental far/middle east story. The background is the Bosphorus and Istanbul.Mecnun is in her mid twenties , still trying to graduate from high school and Leyla is in university, living in a mansion.Arda is the ex boyfriend of Leyla, whose father is doing business with Leyla's father and Leyla's father is in huge depth. He tries to convince his daughter to marry to Arda.Because it is an absurd comedy, you can see Mecnun in space , sometimes Leyla on an island after a plane crash (Oceanic Airways :) ), sometimes a friend of them trying to survive 147 hours on a mountain :)... The series created a huge fan group and still groving .
