    Mr. Darcy ♥
    I recommend dancing to encourage affection.
    There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.
    There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.

  1. Kaan was on Okan's show 2 years ago or so, he spoke English... I think he speaks well for a Turk oh and hi
  2. I haven't completely caught up with the last episode but I wanted to say a few things... Humashah and Zulfikar... clever old Humashah had to poison her husband or something to marry Zulfikar I like Mustafa but I'm finding Pinhan or Pinhar (whatever) way too annoying... same with Melike and Safiye. Dilruba is a really exciting character! and I love Oyku's acting... Glad to see her as part of such a great cast. Vildan (humashah) I find her to be one of the best actresses of the show if not the best. I would have loved Yasemin to be alive for 2 minutes at least for Kosem to say good-bye to her I really liked the scene where Kosem told Iskender to kill Safiye, benim icin yapacaksin bunu (her eyes burning with the fire of revenge)....hay hay efendim Osman is a such a likeable Prince (btw he is older than his father... ) and I find the Mehmet-Ayse duo quite irritating as well. Lots of irritating new characters It seems the büyücü lady's prophecy is true...one by one people in Kosem's lives, her dearest ones are dying out....Golge, her father, her sister, and now...
  3. Regarding the last episodes, I just can't take it when I see iskender & kosem together...as much as I love Ahmet! Their chemistry and story is just something else, the way they met, etc Dervis and Handan were so stupid in the end that I was glad to see them go. As much as I find Halime irritating sometimes, I love her she made a great team with kosem against humasha, I also find her very realistic the way she does not trust anyway. Menekse and Dilruba, I find these two quite annoying though! Didn't expect Zulfikar to fall so quickly for Humasah. Haci aga and bulbul, top notch as always
  4. Defne / Elcin Sangu has burnout syndrome, same as Meryem uzerli and I think Baris too...not sure if they'll be continuing anymore...does anyone have any news?
  5. Exactly, it is a very loose adaptation as I said, I think they even put a disclaimer when the show begins. Lidl? I'm not sure what you mean... she is not saying any of those things, Peri. She is talking about the differences between the real Kosem and Hurrem She said Kosem in her letters writes "Helbette" (Elbette meaning of course in Turkish taken from Persian) which is only used by Pontic Greeks today but Helbette was used by all Greeks in the Ottoman Empire hence she was definitely Greek and she goes on to talk about some documents from the Venetian archives... She speaks Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Galician, and other romance languages for translating documents and was talking about some recent documents that were found about Kosem.
  6. I understand what you mean, even though I really like Ozlem (part of Turkey's academic intelligentsia, her being a historian hence a very reliable authority on Kosem, academician, polymath and hyperpolyglot) I too found it super weird to judge someone before even seeing them in their character! Other than that, I liked the new info about Kosem (the document) I'd love to read Ozlem's book about her. I watched a bit of it, I liked Beren! Esp her monologue in the beginning, she sort of has an accent which people found weird but I liked it. Of course, she is stunning which goes without saying and looks super young. There was a discussion about MY/Kosem being historically inaccurate a while back on this thread and whilst I understand how hard it must be for academicians like Ozlem to watch it without cringing, I have to agree with those who say that if you want to learn about history you must watch a documentary or read books...MY is loosely, very loosely based on real events in history and it is just an adaptation.
  7. For those who can read Turkish, this is worth reading. http://www.hurriyet.com.tr/tarihci-ozlem-kumrularin-iddiasi-kosem-ahmedin-nik-hli-esiydi-40016867 Muhteşem Yüzyıl: Kösem Sultan’ı izlediniz mi?Biraz, ilk sahneleri güzeldi ama sonrasına 10 dakika dayanabildim. Mesela Hülya Avşar, diziyi götürmüyor. Ritmi durduruyor. Hatalar da çok fazlaydı. Kitap, Kösem adına yeni ne söylüyor?Kösem’in Ahmed’in nikâhlı eşi olduğu ilk kez bu kitapta yazılıyor. Bu bilgi bence dizinin de kaderini değiştirecektir. Böyle bir bilgi nasıl ortaya çıkmamış?Çünkü Venedik arşivinde bulunan Osmanlıca bir belge. Ortaya çıkması dil engeline takılmıştır. Bu belge IV. Murad başa çıktığı zaman saraydan Venedik’e gönderilmiş. Ayrıca Kösem’in başka kaynaklarda adı geçmeyen iki çocuğu daha olduğunu yine mektuplarda görüyoruz. İsimleri Orhan ve Selim. Ama yaşlarının çok küçük olduğu belirtiliyor. Ama iki çocuğun sadece bir belgede geçmesi bizde de şüphe uyandırıyor. Peki Beren Saat’ten Kösem Sultan nasıl olur?Olmaz. Çünkü üzerine yapışan bir Bihter rolü var. Meryem Uzerli o açıdan çok şanslıydı. Ayrıca Kösem çok masum bir kadın değildi. Beren Saat’in yüzündeki o masumiyetle Kösem çelişiyor. Bir de Kösem hükümet gibi kadındı. Beren o otoriteyi temsil edemiyor. Dizide Ahmed bir tabloda Anastasia’yı (Kösem) görüyor. Ve Safiye Sultan ona tahta geçme hediyesi olarak Anastasia’yı bulup hediye ediyor... Bu da yanlış bilgi mi?Tamamen yanlış bilgi. Bosna paşası Ahmed’in annesine Anastasia’yı (Kösem) hediye ediyor. Belki de amacı o zamanlar Ahmed’in annesine yanaşmak. Peki Anastasia (Kösem) aslında nereli?Anastasia ismi zaten 17. yüzyıldaki kurgu bir romandan uydurularak yazılmış. Yunan asıllı. Mektuplarında “Helbette” diyor. Bugün sadece Pontus bölgesinde kalan bir kullanım. Buradan da zaten Yunan olduğu anlaşılıyor. I don't know if anyone here knows Ozlem Kumrular though, Angel? Pat?
  8. Fahriye singing Le Vie En Rose was beautiful. Lemancigiiiiiiiiiiiiiim! <3 How are you? You are missed!
  9. I first saw her in Ezel and was surprised at how beautiful she looked with such little makeup and her acting was very natural although her role was small. I didn't like her role in Merhamet though... I also watched her in comedy and she was hilarious!
  10. I like ripped jeans but not when like your entire kneecap is bulging out of the jeans...so not classy, in my opinion.
  11. Yeah, I guess it depends on the person. I like it better, it is not repetitive and I love the Karadeniz vibes and the whole family setup. The comedy I feel is more original than these two as well.
