      ***Reminder About Storage Shortage ***   02/15/2018

      Hello, everyone. I wanted to just posts a little reminder. Anything we post in the forum takes up space.  Many of us agonized for days and weeks when we almost lost the forum over lack of space. Pat and I spent weeks cleaning up and getting rid of/cutting down threads many of us loved and will miss because of the issue. I am seeing lots and lots of gifs and pictures being posted. Some posts even including multiple gifs and them people continuously quoting those.  There is no need for 10 people to quote the same post with a crazy amount of pictures or gifs in it.  I get that gifs are a really fun way to express thoughts falan, but I ask that you guys to be considerate and not excessive in the amount of images and gifs you post. Twitter, Insta, YT and FB should be just fine. But gifs really do start taking up a lot of space. And before I get accused of holding double standards, this applies to all show sub-forums. It especially applies to Cukur/SBA/FHvK and ATB.  You can still post gifs in the form of links. People will just have to take the extra step to click on those links in order to view the gif.  Again, I'm not saying we need to completely stop posting them. Let's just apply some limitations on how many get posted at the same time. I really don't think any of us wants to have to go through what we just went to. Surely not any time soon. Also, I plan on deleting the actors and actress threads for shows. Most leads have their own thread as it is, and photos of less popular actors can be posted in the general thread for the show. Every show has such a thread anyway. I will be trimming down all backstage photos threads and keep them down to 50 pages at most.  I will also be deleting gif threads for ended shows. I have been going through them and most of the gifs are displaying as broken links anyway.  I also ask that you please remember to please clean out you mailboxes periodically and get rid of any large messages or messages you no longer need. People understand the situation. No one will be offended if you leave a conversation.  I'd appreciate it if everyone  took a second to acknowledge that they've read this announcement he/she has read it.    Thank you, and have a great day.

  1. Hi Lena 

    I love your reviews about the episodes of Kara para Ask, they were excellent!!!

    I would like to know your thoughts about the lasts episodes, . I got sooo frustrated, I do not know if it was only me.  I love Elif and Omer, but for me the writers did do good with the ending.  I like the fact that they end up together, but  the way , was not the perfect. 

    1. Lena


      I agree with you. Not just the ending, but the writing too was not that good. Over time, the quality was lost. Sadly.

      But, I thank you a lot for liking my reviews. I am glad you feel that way.

      Hi Lena

      I read your last review, and it is exactly how I feel, except that I still love Elmer, actually I adore them and I would like to see them together again, they have such an incredible chemistry . 

       As you said, this show could have been the BEST show and be remembered forever, but it left me feeling deceived and very disappointed .  

      The show definitely lost balance, there was too much evil and suffering for Elmer . Elif going to prison twice, facing terrible moments was depressing, as if that was not enough she lost her baby  NOT FAIR!!!! . Omer suffering for her,  frustrated because he could not get evidence against the malefactors and every time he had evidence, it was destroyed...NO NO NO PLEASE

      What about Tayar and all his friends.???. we have never seen them suffering that much.... the writers must have hated us and did not want to give us the pleasure of seeing them receive their punishment.  Pleasure that we deserved for our sanity after the suffering that we had to go through with this show.

       When Elif asked Omer to leave his Job and left him after all he had done for her and her sisters, I HATED HER!!!!. then seeing  Omer  looking for her and begging her !!! it was humiliating!!!! he did not do anything bad to be begging.  Elif  asking him: where are you going to live? what are you going to do for a living?... she provoked that when she pushed him to leave his job, HELLO!!,  she should have felt ashamed.  I was so pissed off, that I could not even enjoy when they were married. 

      (I am still pist) 

      Asli being nasty with Omer and blaming him for the suffering of Elif, was not right, she took her decision and left him. What were the writers thinking? please use common sense !!!! as you said it would be scary to meet the writers in real life.

      Elif becoming a hippie after all the beautiful clothes that she showed at the beginning (that everybody loooved) was another disappointment . And even worst was that she dragged Omer to live like her and force him  to do what she wants, opening  a business that maybe he would not enjoy.

      What about Omer's family ?? they were not invited to the wedding?? everything was Elif's way?

      Omer was doing the right thing in this story, but he was very unlucky . It was not right that he had to induced Tayar to commit suicide, that was not good for his (Omer) mental sanity, and soul, eventhou it was for good. I cried on this part, not for Tayar ...of course. it was for Omer, because inside of him he felt bad and Elif was horrified when she found out. The writers destroyed this couple and us.

      In the last episodes there were too many mistakes and it proves that there was no respect for the people that were watching the program, and falling in love with KPA. In some of the scenes you could not understand if it was day or night.   Elif wearing high heels and later in the same scene she was with tennis shoes!!!  PLEASE!!!    The most wanted  pen drive was red and black , but later the one that Tayar had was totally black!!! and I can mention more but that makes me tired. They must have lost interest, because if the producer did not notice the mistakes, the performers should have said something. 

      Killing characters off like Ipek was sad, she deserved  a better ending after all she went trough. Neddred without receiving a punishment in life  ... COME ON !!!!

      I did like what you had in mind for M/F and his father, that was hilarious!!!, but I think that you went a little bit too far...,  now, I am not sure if you are a part of the writers ...ja ja ja

      Who is Oyku?? 

      Of course I have more to say, but I do not want to bore you with my frustration.
      One last thing that I want to say is that I fell in love with Omer and Elif at the beginning, and I miss how they were. This was a story with great potential, that was not exploited

      Hello Ana!

      Thank you for reading my reviews and choosing me to share your frustrations with. I hope I can help you in some way or another.

      It's fine. We all are free to like and not like whomever we want. I respect your opinion and taste, and yeah, it's so disappointing for this show to end like it did. I think the writers just got lazy and lost inspiration and just relied on the popularity of the show which is a real shame.

      See, that's another good point that you brought up. No balance. It became so unrealistic that everyone is against a couple being together. I mean, seriously? Too much evil and suffering got on my nerves and I am so sorry to say this but at one point, I stopped caring altogether about characters that I adored. They ruined a lot of things but you know what I kept telling myself? Even if it started good and ended bad, it was still their story to tell and not ours, and I have learned to let it go especially since it's something beyond our control.

      You have every right to be pissed but it is what it is.

      Yes, common sense was rarely used in this show and I have learned that expectations always lead to disappointments. So, I am like, “whatever”. It's such a shame.

      About the mistakes, that's another thing that we all talked about here and criticized heavily. It's one thing to have mistakes in writing and it's totally another to have production mistakes. It's totally unprofessional and it made me feel like they just gave up on the show at one point.

      I didn't like how they treated Ipek. Oyku is the name of the actress that played Ipek. I never understood why they liked killing characters off a lot. It was disappointing to see, to say the least.

      About M/F and his father, I wrote it for humor purposes and to show in a way that the writers with their killer mentality may influence the same on other people, which is dangerous. LOL!

      Please, if you have more to say, feel free to let it all out. I can take it. It's not good to keep your frustrations inside of you, believe me. I am glad to be that person who you vent your frustrations to. You never bore me. Please don't say that again.

      Yeah, Season 1 was amazing. It went downhill from there. That's what hurts the most, you know. The writers presented a story with great potential but did not have the talent or the guts to make it happen.

  2. Hi Lena ! I'm a big fan of your lengthy reviews of kpa episodes, I enjoyed a lot, stay blessed.
