30 January 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I never felt like before while watching a TV series. It makes you wanna laugh while you feel so sad at the same time. Character's joy and sadness are so pure that you feel these feelings inside yourself altogether, like a childhood memory.

It is like a laughter when you see some friend falling accidentally or it is like a sadness when your ice cream slip away from its cone. "Leyla ile Mecnun" is totally surreal and absurd but it is so natural as well.

The bad thing about the series is that some jokes or situations are very local in their content so that they can not be translated fully.
