Interesting, exciting, absurd comedy
27 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is a most interesting and exciting TV series in Turkey right now. Even if Ezgi Asaroglu left the show, still it didn't lose much from itself and it is still popular TV series in Turkey. The topic that it handles is more like absurd comedy. But it contains laugh, love, and tears. But it has lots of comedy that involves with Turkish language. So if you don't know Turkish, you probably miss the most of the jokes. Ali Atay, Koksal Engur, Cengiz Bozkurt, Mumtaz Taylan, Osman Sonant, Serkan Keskin are great actors, and they plays in cinema and theaters too. However, it has some directing troubles. Especially if Onur Unlu didn't direct the episode, some glitches may stand out in your eyes.
