6 April 2018 | by fatmaturanSee all my reviews

The fight scene at the beginning of the series, accompanied by classical music, was not boring at all, although between Istanbul skyscrapers were very long. The created world had a different concept than the prisons we know. The prisoners were wearing one type of outfit, but this type of detail was not attached to the flow of events. There was a complete musical feast, from classical music to ankara music and even rap singing. It get a one point for me. I like the dialogue in the series very much.

Despite the length of the episode, I followed a story that was flowing. There was no doubt about Demet Evgar's play, but other players are probably portraying the best characters of their careers. The excitement appeared at the end of the section where the dose would gradually increase. I think we're normally unsuccessful in adapting and obviously do not want to miss it when there's a good chance of watching a good adaptation. Congratulations to the team. The roads are open, the ratings are plentiful.
