Well, I have spent an entire week of binge watching Magnificent Century on YouTube. I had a horrible time trying to find all of the episodes for season 2, 3, 4. I could only find about half of them with English Subtitles so I watched the actors/actresses speaking Turkish. (I only speak English-American) It was so hard trying to keep up with the story when I could not understand what they were saying. I printed out the synopsis for these season which helped me to understand what was happening and helped a little. I have to say that this Series was all that I could hope for. It made me feel every emotion of love, sadness, anger, frustration, fear and hope. I cried all day as I watched the deaths of Hurren and Sulyman. What a love story! Now that it is over, I just feel depressed. I think I am in mourning for Hurren and Sulyman. I think I will take a break for a little while before I watch another of these wonderful Turkish Dramas because I don’t think my heart will take anymore right now.

ADMIN: By the way, what happened to Bali Bey in the story. He left to go find the kidnapped Hurren and never returned. (unless I missed a episode) I am still looking for that beautiful man. Can you answer this question?

I have managed to find season 2 on YouTube but almost half of the second season does not have English subtitles. Do you know how hard it is to follow a story when you are only watching the actors and not understanding a single word that they are saying. It is just terrible. I want to finish watching this show if I can find the episodes but I have made a promise to myself. I am not watching another Turkish Drama Television series on Netflix because of this problem

The Turkish Dramas are fantastic and the American ladies are loving every minute of them but we must have English subtitles and all of the seasons. PLEASE DON’T SELL NETFLIX ONLY ONE SEASON WHEN THERE ARE FOUR SEASONS. PLEASE! Also, if you want to send Suleyman and Bali Bey to America, send them on. We ladies will be waiting to greet them.

I just finished watching season 1 (48 episodes) on Netflix of Magnificent Century. It ended with the harem girl holding a knife to the neck of Suleyman!!!!! I have discovered that there are over 100 episodes but Netflix is not showing the rest. This is the fourth Turkish Drama that I have watched and all of them are really good. However, Netflix leads us to the watering hole and refuses to give us a drink. Why are they buying only one season. It is like going to a movie and only getting to see half of it. I cannot believe that I will have to go to YouTube again searching for other episodes of this drama. NETFLIX – SHAME ON YOU!

Halit Ergenc does a fantastic job playing Suleyman!
