# 15 Watching Turkish TV series

turkish2Latin soap operas or I should say “Mexican” series were once one of the top shows in any Saudi household, until Turkish series were introduced to Saudis.  Watching Turkish series became one of the activities that some Saudis have to invest their time and include it in their schedule in order to watch it. The popularity of  those Turkish series can be explained in two reasons.  First, some of the stories can be interesting and entertaining, which makes you glued to the TV screen.  The other reason is, the actors who are playing those characters  can be interesting, wink..wink.
From Mohnad to Lamees to Noor and so on, they became conversational topics in homes, cafes, or any other place that people can discuss and talk about, and try to figure out what is going to happen in the next episode. It is diffcult to watch those type of shows not from the beginning and trying to figure out what’s going on in the middle of a storyline; therefore, you have to find one of the true fans that know every single charcter in the show by the name, and let him or her explain everything to you.  Look for that person who set his/her cell phone ring tone as the intro song of one those shows, and trust me that is the person who you need to ask.

  1. over-rated O.o. I mean the re-action and the rush towords the turkish series…and from my point of view, mostly people watch because the actors\actresses are hot. (A)

  2. I don’t know if classifying a fad on this list is a good idea. Balout has been popular for years but Turkish series only for one year and already their popularity has fallen.

    • Hello Mohamed S,
      Thanks for reading. About the list of “stuff”, well it is not based on the most poplar items to the least. In other words, there is no systematic ranking that I am following, it’s random classification based on things that you may witness in Saudi society. =)
      Regards & Ramadan Kareem
