I even forgot the episode length thing default_doh
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???

This is what i think so too..
I need to watch this again with english sub.. because listening to Halit conversing with his voice, without me totally understand what he's saying, is frustrating to me. [default_yoga-smiley.gif] . Halit with his acting skills, and his eyes, and his deep voice.. he is just special. [uff.gif] .
Plus Halit and Ozan are a dream, love the chemistry fistbump . Birce and Asli.. need i say more about the cast ya.. ive said it like thousand times.. [default_biggrin.png]

I liked this first episode, I think the story is well written and we will get more action/suspense and surprises in the upcoming episodes;
the (ex) digital aspect of the dizi still shows, in how characters are introducted and in the speedy pace. I didn't find the start particularly slow, and it was not slower that other dizis' first episodes, that I watched recently
So glad for the ratings, it deserved the first spot in AB. I think it would have a similar start to Istanbul gelin, for example. Rarely first in Total but smashing ratings in AB.
I think this is my real first dizi of Birce, since I didn't really like her in SBA and dropped it. I already know how a fine actor is Ozan Guven and here, he's so different from Fi. For Asli character, I still need to see more of her. Nur is great as usual. She managed to create this suspicion in me and I even suspected the child is Egemen's , because I found their encounter a bit "creepy" and it just turned true :p And Halit, (naturally) so different from Vatanim Sensin, such a major talent. Mesut Akusta has a nice track in action/mafia related shows and he's fitting his role.
for the dizi "duration" , I don"t know if the story will get beyond Deniz surgery, i.e. if ratings are good, would the story have space for a longer season ? it's possible if writers have imagination (casa del papel gets renewed again and again..) but I prefer to think they will still be focused on the initial story and deliver only good quality scenario.

Hello guys! tbluerose Hope you are fine. I read all you interesting comments.
I very much liked bolum 1. Witty, interesting, different, great actors.
Looking forward for bolum 2. Here is a moment from the next episode( I guess after the last scene of bolum 1)
where they have managed to come out of the cement and make fun of it

I checked out the first episode. To be honest I was a bit underwhelmed. I found it a bit slow in the first half. Also, I think I expected this to be more of a thriller but it’s really more of a family drama.

I really like Halit. He has the ability to bring intensity without resorting to excessive shouting and screaming (my biggest Turkish drama pet peeve). All the other cast are great as well.

I am just not sure about the show. I think it would have been so much better as a web series with shorter episodes. I feel like they had to drag out the episode on Tv so the impact wasn’t as strong as it could have been. I still hope it does well.

I am watching it, bit mixed with Hercai...and it's going very good!
Halit and Nur are great as couple, but I just want Irfan and Ilay back as well as Eda and Irfan, tho we need first to see how it really was in past...were they all big gang or not and for how long some of them were together etc.

Weird how Asli accepted this role after being basrol. she barely gets minutes per episode, or at least in this first 2
