Amazing!!
6 October 2018 | by malikakasSee all my reviews

The show was a little slow to start for me... but by the end one of the best thrillers I have every seen. Tuba Buyukustunn is fabulous.. she was one of the most nuanced and brilliant performers I have ever watched. Well deserving to be the first actor from Turkey to receive an Emmy nomination. The show had me riveted, staying up late to binge watch. This is truly a must watch!
