  1. Whatis the name of Sevinc?

  2. Sorry, there is one other thing that I would like to say about this Drama. The translation from Turkish to English was not very good. There were a lot of mistakes. In the conversations, they kept calling a him, a her or vice versa. They need to get their genders correct. But, what the heck., I am just happy for anyone to attempt to translate these Turkish Dramas so I can watch them. So, whoever translated ….thank you very much.

  3. Just finished watching Love me as I am on Netflix-season 1-3. I have watched about 7-8 Turkish Dramas to date. I enjoy watching them as I learn about the country of Turkey and the people and it is pure entertainment. This is the first Comedy that I have watched. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I found my self laughing out loud at times and giggling like a child the rest of the time. The Romance of Omer and Aysem was really cute. But, I was annoyed by Aysem at times. She was a 20 year old college student who was innocent and naïve but she was playing this part like a twelve year old child. Even when she was 25 years old and a college professor, she was still acting like a twelve year old child. She kept talking fast and trying to be funny when she needed to play the straight part and leave the funny to the comedians. I loved watching Fahriye and Reyhan. They were so funny and their sister-friend relationship was heartwarming. You should have left Haluk out of the show. Every time that hairy faced, blubbering man came on screen, I would fast forward so I did not have to listen to his mouth. Someone needed to shave his head and face and stick a sock in his mouth. I think he is probably a good comedian but I could not handle this type of nonsense. He graduated from college but he ran around blubbering like the village idiot???? Did not get it at all. The man that played Omer’s father was the most horrible man I have ever seen. I was glad when he left the show but I do not understand how he and wife retired to Brazil when all they had was taken from them. Where did they get the money? I am still scratching my head about the ending of season 2 and the beginning of season three. Half of the characters disappeared and all these new characters were introduced. It was confusing and I did not like that. Why did you do that?? Well, overall, I truly enjoyed the comedy. It was light and funny and I looked forward to watching another episode.

    I need to say that being a non-Turkish person, I have not been a fan of Turkish music. It was just too different from what I am familiar with. However, I really enjoyed the music that was in this drama. The song Love me as I am was beautiful. Many of the other songs, and music was really nice. I enjoyed listening to it. You need to keep the person who selected all this music as in my opinion, he or she did a great job.

    Season three ended abruptly and I have read that there is a season four but I cannot find it on YouTube. Is there a season four? I would really like to watch the rest of this show.

    • Hi Judy Ellison, I too have just finished Love Me As I am/ Beni Boyle Sev series one, two & three on UK Netflix. I am surprised I stayed with it so long as I am not a huge fan of romantic comedies usually, I love Turkish series but usually prefer one with a bit of a thriller and or gangster aspect. However as you say, this was an excellently acted comedy which grows on you after a while and is genuinely funny.

      I do agree with you partly about Ayshem who I too, started to find annoying but then I am aware that I soon get bored of the main couple’s romance in Turkish dramas anyway and the eternal focus on the heroine/ her face, basically. However I came to the conclusion that they were actually depicting the fact that Ayshem was a bit, or minorly mad/ insane. As was Haluk, just a little. Yes, he is highly educated but it is left to us to wonder if he is a bit mad too. Although he often does put on that schtick, on purpose, to get people to stop questioning him as to something specific. I think this was implied, that his friends realised he was a bit ‘out there’ and so was Ayshem. She herself refers, in the beginning, to “my obsessions” which she admits she does get. When she has the influence of hormones or extra stress in her life; then this side of her mental make-up comes out so to speak. Well that was my take on it anyway. Plus she really is naive as you say, she has been brought up as a much adored single child in a small village by an adoring father so she has led a sheltered life and also been spoiled, not materially but emotionally as she is used to getting her own way in everything! This is shown in the early series as Ayshem basically sulking with Omer when he doesn’t agree or give in to her.

      However Ayshem does grow up over the series and becomes more adult. Yet overall she is basically still the same self as is shown at the University when she describes it to someone going for a job there as “pretend to be very serious, they like that”! They deliberately, I felt, show Ayshem stomping along in her high heels because she was never really used to wearing them, lol.

      There is a deliberate contrast and depiction of the different cultures within which Ayshem and Omer and his friends, have been brought up in. Ayshem does experience things differently and seems to live in a more emotional realm than Omer and his friends do.

      This is an ongoing theme in Turkish dramas, to compare and contrast the different cultures and outlooks of the working class characters, usually from the countryside, versus the middle or upper class, often urban characters. It is the classic compare and contrast of ‘traditional’ versus ‘modern’ cultural /family values. Although it is never as clearly cut and dried as this though in practice as these dramas show us.

      My take on Haluk was that he was brilliant but a wee bit mad but he also came from the countryside, near to where Ayshem came from, although exactly where was all a bit vague. Accepting Haluk for how he was: was an example of the group’s tolerance to the viewer I felt.

      Haluk is actually the lynchpin of the entire series in the beginning as it is he who helps out both Ayshem and her father and brings many of the characters together if you notice.

      For me it was Reyhans’ interminable gurning and exaggerated facial expressions for a period that nearly had me giving up. I mean, surely she is more than a bit mad too!

      Again, this is depicting the tolerance of the group to different people I think. They are all similar but different yet broadly agree on things.

      I would point out that Turkish dramas often have a comedy character or duo, in the ancient style of Shakespeare’s plays, there was often a ‘fool’ who comes on and speaks to the audience or clowns around. This happens in Intersection/ Filinta to name a couple off the top of my head.

      With respect, you may be taking things too seriously to be so annoyed at Haluk and Reha, I mean Reha was meant to be over the top evil, yet there were times he breaks down with emotion as it is all based on the love of his son really..

      Reha and his wife (did we ever find out her name?) were hilariously and excellently acted comedy characters. If you do not happen to come from a from a culture who accepts that much interference in a son’s life from their parents-you will find them even more incomprehensible but funny and mad at the same time! But I do think they were meant to be a caricature of such parents that everybody can understand.
      Nb. It was explained at some point that they retired to Brazil as it was cheaper to live there and they didn’t want to be seen by any of their rich friends in Turkey in their new circumstances..

      What happened at the end of series two is explained in detail in episode One, you have to listen out for it, around 1:24 minutes in a character asks another: so what happened?

      I agree about the music in Turkish dramas, it does sneak up on you and after a while really grows on you and is an extra informative key to the action and emotion happening at various times too! ie. It takes on a language of its own. I particularly liked the main theme tune sung by Orhan Gencebey, wonderful singing and baritone voice. 🙂

      Agreed about series four-where is it? This always happens with Turkish series-nooooooooo!

  4. For anyone wondering what happened at the end of series two and why series three seems different: series three is five years later.

    & We get our answer as to what on earth happened at the end of series two 1:25:43 into episode one of series three!

    Nb. I can’t believe there is another series, four and as yet, Netflix doesn’t have it, not again! Nor is it with English subtitles on Youtube.

  5. What happened between season 2 and 3 of the Turkish drama “Love Me as I Am”? New characters are introduced, and others disappeared? It’s almost like there were missing episodes in between?

    • OK, I was wondering this too, it was very confusing, I skimmed through the next few episodes of series three trying to make sense of it and in particular, the ending of the last episode of series two! But then I gave up after much research and fining nothing except the Turkish wikipedia page for this series which does give some information about characters-but warning-as per usual contains spoilers, but still gave me no answers as to what I was looking for.

      So i settled down to watch episode one of series three. At precisely 1 hour 25 minutes in at approximately 43 seconds-a character asks exactly what the viewer wants to know-ie. what happened at the end of series two??? You will get your answers there. Long story short-series three is five years later..Nb. Don’t tell me there is another series-four-and no English subtitles for it-it’s not on Netflix either. Noooooooo, not again!

    • I too was confused, I did a lot of research but found no answers. Finally I settled down to watch episode one of series three and at 1 hour and 25 minutes into the episode at approximately 43 seconds in after that: you get your answer. As to what happened at the end of series two. Because a character asks exactly this question! Long story short-series three is five years later..

      Nb. I can’t believe there is a series four and we so far can’t get it in English subtitles, not again! It’s not on Netflix or Youtube. Noooooooo!..

    • It is five years later in series three.

      Then, one hour and 25 minutes and 43 seconds into episode One of series three-we get our answer as to what happened at the end of series Two…

  9. Does anyone know where I can watch season 4?

    • I would love to see .more of this show, I have laughed and cried, not something I do with many shows now, most of them have no meaning of life, I would love to see season 4, I wished we could at least but the CD’s somewhere, I live in a small US town and I am 65, grew up with Tammy movies, Elvis Presley and westerns. Now TV is such a disappointment. Thank You

  10. Who is the actor who plays Mazhar in Love Me As I Am? Seems everyone is listed except him……….

  11. Can someone let me know if series has happy or sad ending. I don’t want to devote my time and energy to series that ends negatively. I get involved emotionally and don’t want to do that to myself. Thanks in advance ☺️
