Excellent story line. The Turkish community is quite colorful and heartfelt. This story shares the love of many kinds of earthly souls from all walks of life.
Misfits as we all are, hunger for the sweet kindness of being human.
Passion takes 180° turn in this tale, makes you cry out ” I exist because we exist “!!
Turkish films are truly art.
I LOVE this show. I don’t speak Turkish, but this show is one of the best shows I’ve ever seen! Does anyone know where to find the song that Gulum towards the end of the series? Something like “you like the rain…”
I have watched this whole series in turkish and i don’t know turkish except few words. Can anhone explain tge last episode.. it is the saddest drama i have ever seen. Why şubat took black box to that man if yağmur was alive? How was that balck box going to save her bcz when şubat gave that black bix yağmur was already taken into police custody. And after sooo many years şubat comes and kills his friend.. 😭 and why so sad end for elem.. i am sad that i watched this whole series in turkish just to watch this end. Can anyone 1 explain the end. And also about aziz bey. I didn’t understand anything aboyt his past.. and what they did for children.. i mean i didn’t see any results..
Absolutely Fantastic, love it and my mum loves it too.
Hope there will be some more coming out soon
I love this series.
Alican/Subat is the sexiest man I have seen in a long time.. I love foreign films. This had the whole beauty and the beast thing going on and what a beast Subat in this series. As some say here… Hubba-hubba. Binge worthy yes indeed.
The worse tv series ever … if you watch it make sure you hide all knives because you will cut your veins … is long pointless not even entertaining lousy plot who the hell wrote that piece of garbage !!!! And who the hell gave it five stars????
I really like the song in episode 16. Anyone know who it is?
I am not at episode 16 yet, but let me tell you of a trick of mine for the wonderful music in these Turkish dramas: The Shazam app on my phone. I play the scene (I watch on an iPad) and use my mobile phone to have Shazam “listen”. Once I find out the song title and artist, I have been able to find the song on YouTube.
Şubat has music that is çok wonderful and the narrations to start the episodes are worth a rewatch they are so good. But, I can’t rewatch the Şubat show because I can’t stand to hear Melisa scream his name a zillion times. I wish netflix would edit out half of the times she is screaming. I have rewatched Behzat Ç 3X. I have also rewatched Intersection 2X ( Alican who plays Şubat was marvelous and could bring across a very complex character in Kördüğüm) and of course I loved the music in both.
Subat! Subat! Subat! Subat! [asthmatic wheezing]. Subat! Subat!Subat! [more asthmatic wheezing]. Subat! Subat!
I enjoyed half of this show but it went on forever and got more and more convoluted. How long did it run in Turkey? It mus have gone for years.
Well said….and I didn’t like the ending at all…but the weird crazy guy was great…seemed like he turned into the ” sage” of the group….I just watched Kaçak which had a crazy element in a character but more low key and fun…Kaçak only has 50 episodes on netflix leaving the last two off for no good reason of their season one…As the composer for Subat, Ayse Onder said, people don’t want such a long show and long episodes as well…If you want a really long one watch Behzat Ç…that is is 95..
DameH, Interesting you should say that. I am on Netflix’s Season 1, Episode 21. I thought it was going to be wrapped up at around Episode 10. It could have been. It is definitely getting very convoluted and new characters are being introduced, while other already developed characters seem to have been abandoned. I liked some of those characters, and I don’t want to give away any Spoilers. I will have to wait and see if some of the already developed characters re-emerge.
How can I find the music for the part in Sabat when the children are in the scene…it is a brilliant remix of the hymn Children of the Heavenly Father…What is the name in Turkish and who does the music, (composer)?
Maybe,ıt is Cem Adrian & Aylin Aslım – Herkes Gider Mi ?
I found it from Asye Onder (one of the composers for the show) who wrote a composition based on this old children’s tune. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpx7kufsXdM&feature=youtu.be
Thank you for trying to help me. I appreciate it.
