  1. I am watching season 2 on YouTube. The Spanish version has subtitles, that can be auto translated to English. Sometimes the translations are absurd, but between my 6 years of Spanish, and the bad subtitles, it works.

    • Hi Kristen……. Thankyou for your information. I love to watch this series but there is no english substitle available of season 2. I’d watched season 2 in you tube but in Turkish language and I do not understand Turkish. I will try watch season 2 in Spanish version, hope auto translated can work well

      • It helps if you know some Spanish. The translations are literal, and sometimes really bad, but I was able to understand what was going on.

  2. Hello where can I watch KACAK with English subtitles ???

  3. I have watched series 1 seven times on Netflix – where is series 2 and 3? Love and punishment with English subtitles is fantastic!!!!

  4. Well I am hooked on these series from Turkey, but rather frustrating having to wait for the 2nd Series of Love and Punishment. I live in Australia, have also watched Karadayi. My questions when can we expect the new series on Netfix please? Great actors from Tukey, keep up the great shows. Thank you.

  5. I have a PhD in theatre, done everything from building sets, running lights, to see my own plays produced, which has been an enrichment for every film or TV series I’ve watched. I mention this because of the visual feast L&P is, the costumes, the views of homes and countryside, add to that great acting and faultless dialogue, impeccable direction and you have given viewers many hours of worthwhile entertainment. Thank you.

    • Would you by any chance know what cello piece is played as a is again at 17 minutes in on episode 25…it is frequent…I played a bit on the piano to a musical friend over the phone and she recognized it as well…She wondered if it was a Mancini piece…I searched on you tube but it isn’t included in the Kiraç (composer) clip of music for this series. Thanks in advance, if it comes to mind.

  6. I am still waiting for Netflix to present the 2nd season with English subtitles. Thanks to YouTube I’ve watched it many times in Turkish without knowing the language. However, I lived in Southern Spain (Sevilla) many years; consequently some details of Love & Punishment were particularly delicious; the silver engagement ring on the right hand that becomes gold on the left hand at the wedding, just like they do in Sevilla. Being able to speak Spanish helped understand scenes in Turkish because of the words that are the same or similar in the 2 languages. The street living…sidewalk cafes…the Mediterranean folks are so good at brought back fond memories of a more relaxed life style that I miss. Thank you for responding to my comments. I wish there were some way I could help with the language. I’d do it for free. ! item: L&P has brought my sister and I close and we’ve had hours of laughter & dialogue discussing it.

  7. Yes, these Turkish dramas are like reading a book. I’m an avid reader and have been away from home for 4 months, these Turkish dramas have been my saving grace. Someone (Netflix) needs to pick up the second season of Love and Punishment with English subtitles. I’ve tried in turkish, but know I’m losing part of the plot. Please give us the 2nd season as soon as possible.

  8. Another comment! Watching these movies is like reading a book with pictures!! Love them!

  9. Please bring om Season 2 of LOVE& PUNISHMENT.
    My friends and I are enormous fans of this series

  10. I cannot wait to see the 2nd season of this Turkish drama love and punishment. Netflix need to realise that there is a strong following of Turkish drama by us Westerners as they are so compelling. I have seen several first seasons including The Girl I Loved; Love is in the Air; Karadayi and have been left on the edge at the end of the first season!!
    What is this Netflix. Get your game on and produce what the public want.

  11. I love the Love and Punishment series, but how can I buy the dvd with English subtitles and also see the second series

  12. I do not like “Soaps” to be clear. I have enjoyed Love and Punishment enormously. I’m 83, US born and raised and unfortunately I have lived long enough to see one ignorant stupid idiot–there have been others, GW Bush, for example–if not ruin the country, certainly doing his best to accomplish that cowardly if not the fatal act.
    This Turkish series has been a god-send in this time of Washington inhumanity. Thanks, and hats off to Turkish film makers all of them. I have even watched season 2 in Turkish (4 times). Well worth the effort in spite of not understanding every word. Looking forward to Netflix getting 2nd season with subtitles.

    • I love your comment! I too have watched the final of Kaçak and 1001 Nights on youtube without understanding anything and I so I guess I will also watch this one that way as well. I love it because watching Turkish tv lights up my brain and makes me happy! I turned 65 this week and I agree, finding Turkish tv is a godsend and at my age comparing American, Spanish, Swedish and Italian movies, I can recognize how smart the Turkish screen writers are. I watched Behzat Ç (all 96 episodes) 3x already, marveling at the brilliance of characters, plot lines, timing, social issues and more. I’ve watched Gonul and Intersection twice each. So compelling!

  13. please I would like to know how to see thr second season of love and punishment ,Please help me and let me know.Thanks

  14. I am blown away by Love and Punishment. I’ve obsesses over it and have now watched a multitude of time. But I need to see Season 2; I must find out if Savas and Yasimin’s love is so wholesome and true. Lordy, I think I live in my head.

  15. Katherine Swinson

    Cicek is my favorite. Sadly she has been so hurt by tradition’s mandate. Hope there’s happiness at the end for her. This is my second time watching Turkish love stories. In both wives are reduced to almost nothing while the mistress are elevated in status.

  16. I live in NZ and somehow I came across on the internet Turkish movies and series so I started to watch Ask be Ceza with the English subtitles and what an awesome one I was hooked and watched even with no subtitles. I would love to watch the whole series with English subtitles.

    I love the 2 main actors Yasemin and Savas their love for each other is what makes this whole love story beautiful and overwhelming. Savas is the man and Yasemin is so lucky to have him and vice versa.

    I watched many series after that but by far Ask ve Ceza is the best one ever. Please continue this
    love story as I would love to watch some more.

    My first trip to Europe Turkey will be included and hopefully I get to see the actors haha!

  17. I absolutely loved this series, got so hooked that I watched season two on Youtube WITHOUT SUBTITLES. I would love to watch it again with English subtitles not sure when Netflix will be bringing it out.

    I absolutely love the main actors Yasemin and Savas, would love to see this LOVE STORY continue. I live in Australia and have visited Turkey, would love to run into the actors, very good would recommend it any time.

    • I agree with you this series is so amazing and loved it so much even though there were no English subtitles I watched it as if I understood what they were saying. I would watch it again with the English subtitles.

      I love the main actors too Yasemin and Savas and their love for each other is so overwhelming. I live in NZ and I told myself that my first trip to Europe will include Turkey. I watched so many turkish series and movies and by far this is the best ever and I would like to watch the whole series with English subtitles.

      • Loved it! Didn’t like because it left me hanging. I want to see what happens next! Please do an ending! Also The Girl I Loved left me hanging ! When will we see the rest of the stories!

      • I agree with you Katalina, best series ever. I’ve just finished watching the first series again and get quite frustrated with the cliff hanger ending. I’ve emailed Netflix asking when and if they have picked up the second series, but to date still haven’t had a reply. Come on Netflix, bring on the second series of Love & Punishment. Just love the leading actor, he acts with such sensitivity and those beautiful eyes, well, what can I say.

  18. I love this show and would adore English subtitles to all the episodes and it would be great to have a proper ending to the show for instance Yasmine could grow into a great leader of the clan with Savas and someone for Nazam and Pellin. Just thoughts of where the show could go….

  19. I really love watching this TV series and so in love with Sava’s and Yasemin please where to watch season 2!!!

    • a couple of places on facebook offer the translation for both seasons at a cost. I watched 1 & 2 but 2 is incomplete on serial4u

  20. Seriously need English subtitles..have learned a few Turkish works from watching series that have been translated but it’s unfair to tease us with incomplete translations of Turkish drama series…Turkey has very good actors!

  21. Want to see more of Love and Punishment and a few other Turkish series

  22. I love this soap opera too. They show it on viva channel in Israel where I live and one day accidentally turned it on. I think yasmin and Savas are fantastic actors as well as the matriarch. It really is an excellent show and I am so impressed with all the beatuiful views of ocean and scenery of Istanbul. Worth watching!

  24. Kathleen Rousseau

    I too! Am hooked especially Ask Ve Ceza. Unfortunately here in Canada I cannot get Utube/Bollum. So I guess will have to wait til they translate the remaining series.Too Bad. Kathleen

  25. I watched the rest of Ask Ve Ceza (Love and Punishment) on youtube/Bölüm. It is in turkish but I was familiar enough with the characters to generally follow what was going on. Toward the end, there was much missed in conversation exchanges and storyline of why something was happening, but I was still able to keep up. I am buying a turkish language learning CD so I am not dependent on an english translation!

  26. Loved Ask Ve Ceza! Sadly, only the first 43 episodes are translated in to english. Note: those are Netflix episode numbers which differ from Turkish episode numbers which are aired for 1.5 hours. Not translating the entire series is a terrible situation for your viewers! Ugh!
    Anyway, I finished watching the remaining episodes in turkish on youtube/Bölüm. I was familiar enough with the characters to have an idea of what was going on but still, I missed understanding the detailed conversations and storyline. Please, please translate this entire series into english. If there was a Ask Ve Ceza/english DVD for sale, I would buy it immediately and share with friends.

    This is my fourth turkish drama and I am hooked. If I were having a baby boy, his name would be Savas.

  27. I just finished 43 episodes of Love and Punishment. Someone pls tell me there is more coming and when. Just love Savas and need to know if he marries Yasemine. Last episode I saw was when he found out Omer is his son. Just love this story.

  28. When will anyone finish translating this great show??? ? Netflix has season 1 but I can not find anything for season 2 translated in to English… Please, please, please!!!! Someone I am dying to know what happens with Yasemin and Savaş???

  29. Good series.

  30. Love and punishment is epic. Am from Somalia and I’m a big fun of Turkish drama. I watch them in Somali but it would be great if they hard English subtitles. I searched and i couldn’t find one. Someone help. ….

  31. Hello,
    To understand why I decided to write you it is necessary to tell you how I start to watch this show.I am a person from Romania, I have 35 years old with 2 littles children, proffesional i’am engineer and I work in a Research Institute. I do not like all these soap operas,I have no time and it seem to me a waste of time. Excepting a holiday in Kusadasi, and of course our, history with Turkey; across your country I know nothing.
    It is important to say that, in my life I watched one soap only, in 1990, after the Revolution when everyone watching TV as gold.
    To return, this year, everyone at the office follows an Turkish historical serial and occasionally in a small coffee breack , it is set up what was lost, what will be ……
    ASK VE CEZA aired in our country somewhere at 15.00 a clock (difficult to watch- everyone works) and replay showing at 5:00 a clock in the morning.
    Two of my colleagues was talking about this serial, of course, because sometimes, they were unable to wake up at 5.00 in the morning. I was surprised and I thought there is impossible to have a reason to make you get up so early, especially for a soap opera. I laughed and I told them that, but these recommended me to watch an episode.
    So, this summer, I do not know how I stumbled on the internet, over the show. I watched the first episode, and in the next 3 days, I desperately looking for all the episodes. After I’ve watched alerto all the episodes, to see what it happening, I watched again,… this time slowly, for not miss anything. It’s the best movie I’ve ever seen, a single movie I saw in replay and it’s called ” The Gladiator”. Congratulations to you all: first the producer, screenwriter and especially the director(Kudret Sabaunci). This is a movie that includes everything that can have a film, exposing the real terms love, the team is super well made (honestly if the main characters do not match,it’s not worth watching more than 15 minutes of any film), the film is not ” Hair pulled “(with hundreds of episodes), very important: shows images and customs from Turkey. This soap opera was unique: the subject, locations, traditions, clothing, team, music. Has approached points quite sensitives for the public: adolescent problems, drugs and of cultural differences.
    I have to declare that i’m conquered by the show.
    Therefore I had to write to congratulate you;… now I listen Kirac, Aliye Mutlu, Yonca Lodi (non-existent for us before). I listened in the movie and I youtube them… and I found that they are really good. Most likely, we will spend our 2014 holiday,at Bordum, but I want to see the Instanbul too ; …and I will visit him, but when the children will grows a bit.
    I would like to congratulate all the actors, and especially the Sahnur actress(Tomris Incer) and the actor of Ahmed Moran (Halil Ibrahim Aras) – very good. If the main actors I love them, for sure I will watch next movies signed by the director Kudret Sabaunci.
    I thank you.
