Don't you guys find the plot cliche and boring? I-would-do-anything-to-save-my-child. I know most dizis are cliche but this one I don't find interesting at all. If I try it, it would be because of the cast. Well, I'm curious to see Birce in another role.
I see what you mean, but then literally all plots these days are cliche and repetitive. It's how it'll eventually unfold that determines if it's worth it in the end.
It's the same for me. Basically any plot now is something that has already been done before, so it's all about the details and characters of that particular story.

I'm not sure I'm going to be watching this one though. It was supposed to be online, which I would have found time for, but another regular dizi is not a possibility. Plus I'm still in my "I'm not watching any new dizis" phase after the cancellation of Azize.

I really don't see the day as a big problem. Friday has two successful shows (in Total category), Hercai and Arka Sokaklar. So there is space for a 3rd success (for example a 6 rating), like on monday where Cukur has 10, SK 9 and Yasak Elma 6. Also the previous "failures" on fridays were due to the quality of the shows (I think sevgili gecmis and FeS were not good enough per sei to survive. it's not the day fault).
and good luck for this show, I hope the change from digital to TV has been well executed

I was bit afraid and skeptical about day and how they'll perform but seeing lot of people on TW and some of those dizi fan pages who are positive and like that they chose Friday made me relax a bit and now think in positive way. So I guess we'll have to wait and see how audience will like this one. After all they have one of the best casts right now and about story we will see. Babil can find their numbers in AB and ABC category since neither of shows have some huge numbers. You are right about Monday an interesting situation and also Zalim Istanbul kept it well with some 5 ratings.

I dont know why, but i'm actually tiny miny scared that this show might over-ride Hercai.. default_moque.gif , Just look at the cast, omg. I really cannot just pass through the cast names like they're nobody.. they are like.. gods of the turk dizi (althought for once upon a time, that is) .. but still, i still think they are capable to attract audience attention, and with good story, good scripts, drama, editing, music falan... it can survive, may survive. I realise how turk audience sometimes have tendency to like.. shows with certain ages of protagonist.. they like Ozkan deniz... they used to like Erkan Patekkaya, so maybe our two vets here, can catch their attention too.. i'm quite excited for this. Competition is OK on Friday, Hercai is not so strong as it used to be, but still doing good with its regular audience..so i think Babil has the chance here. Arka Sokaklar.. nobody cares. LOL.

Since its now on regular TV, is it going to do the whole season arc (20+ episodes), or just have a couple of episodes like digital platforms do??

Based on earlier assumptions, it was supposed to be fast-paced galiba. I hope it doesn't suffer being dragged through fillers and plot twists just to fill up its episode quota.

I still think Hercai is good to go for the rest of the season regardless of if ratings drop.
Hopefully, Babil does well enough to keep them on their toes so they don't succumb to greed and go for a 3rd season [default_yoga-smiley.gif]

I saw they are continuing with shooting of episode 4 or 5. So they are not much in advance of shootings. Or maybe they had to compress episodes that they already shot to get 2h

A 30-40 minute (lets even say 1 hour) episode now has to be extended by another hour+ ..... they should have just left this thing on digital.... neyse fingers crossed for them

On TRT last night started new comedy show and it will last bit over 60 mins. So maybe Star will do the same. They already had shows who were shorter like Boru and Camber

They posted who's who on Star's site
https://www.startv.com.tr/dizi/babil/fo ... im-kimdir/

Halit Ergenç - İrfan
Ozan Güven - Egemen
Aslı Enver - Ayşe
Birce Akalay - İlay
Nur Fettahoğlu - Eda
Mesut Akusta - Süleyman

A couple we have is Suleyman and Ilay but also she is Irfan' ex. Birce got nice partners who are bit older than her (Mesut is 20 years older)
In Eda's description says she's dangerous enemy so I guess we'll have some triangle back and Ilay trying to be with Irfan, than Suleyman jumping in. Ok it can be interesting, people love those love problems

I expected Birce's character to be the baddie, judging by the car scene.

I am trying to catch up with some parts though I missed start of episode and first part...

But # is no.1 in Turkey and WW so it means people just love it. We'll see will it be the same on ratings list

Also just on first glimpse you can see quality here and high production

It started off really boring but peaked towards the end. Very well-written!

All these shows uploading to youtube lately are making my life so much easier.

I watched this early this morning and thought it was pretty good. Great cast. For the 3 women I think Ilay is the standout, currently; Eda's not super likable, though Nur definitely portrays her well. Ayse seems to be the good girl, as of now. Also it's nice to see all of Birce's tattoos not covered up by dermablend.

I love anything scam-related, I think it's my favorite form of true crime, and an econ professor using his knowledge to scam someone financially is just such a neat idea.

The show started a bit slow which is expected since they have to introduce the characters but then it picked up really good and that ending is just a killer!
Halit is just so amazing! I got teary eyes a few times by his performance! I have never seen Ozan but he was superb!
Nur performance was excellent show the misery of mother with sick child. Maybe not very likable at some scenes but was able to convey her pain so well!
Birce is so beautiful with this hair and I just love her and her acting! I can’t believe her character ended up with Soleyman!!! My other love, Asli, didn’t have many scenes but seems she will come in next episode!
All together great cast and plot! Can’t wait to see how Irfan will start a scam!
BTW, what was the opening scene? Is this a flash back story? Was he getting an award for something and now he is recalling how he got there???
