I make sure and watch this regularly. Enjoy it tremendously. I have just purchased all of season one off the net. The characters remind me of some people I actually know. I grew up in Sisli-Nisantasi area, know a lot of people from there some of them still live there. All the actors are remarkably good. I am very impressed by the writer, who is also one of the main characters in the show. Of course the appearance of Gazanfer Ozcan who is a longtime theater actor fills the show with his presence. Humeyra whom I have known as a singer is simply wonderful in her part. I have been living in Canada since 1968, have only been back for visits 4 times since, so needless to say this program is a visit home at a different time then I have left home, however some things never change.
