Hi, fellas! What’s up? Hopefully you are home now and enjoying quality time with your loved ones.
Since Monday is usually tiring, let’s just do something stress-free today. Are you familiar with these people?
@englishtips4u all i know that they are turkish,, but sorry i dont like the drama
They are from Turkish TV series Binbir Gece, or more commonly known in Indonesia as Shehrazat. I heard the series is pretty popular, along with other titles such as Elif, Cinta di Musim Cherry, or Abad Kejayaan.
And that, fellas, is going to be our topic for today’s #EngTalk. Are you one of the audiences that enjoy watching Turkish TV Series? What is your favourite one? Or are you one of the people who do not pay much attention? Please feel free to tweet us with the hash tag #EngTalk.
@EnglishTips4U yeah I love Turkish drama, that was Kiraz Mevsimi (Cinta di Musim Cherry)
@EnglishTips4U Because my little brother very like Elif. So I also watched it.
@EnglishTips4U Not my cup of tea.
Yes,of course. One of them is elif
@englishtips4u I like British and American sitcoms,not Turkish
Elif season 2
@EnglishTips4U I don’t watch any Turkish dramas
@EnglishTips4U sometimes I watch it
I love watching Turkish series. I watch Elif, Cansu Hazal and Shehrazat
@EnglishTips4U nope, but sometimes I’m curious with cinta musim cherry
@EnglishTips4U I dont like turkish dramas, it’s almost like indonesia sinetron. I like dorama more, many moral values I can find from it
@EnglishTips4U never watched it
@EnglishTips4U sometimes I watch Cansu Hazal but I watch some american tv series every week. Hmm.
@englishtips4u im an indian,i must say indian dramas r the worst,we had great in 80s,90s..i watch turkish one,its ok
@englishtips4u yeah my mom too,, those Turkish drama seem to be mom’s favorite
@EnglishTips4U I love watching Turkish series because the casts are beautiful and handsome lol
If I may put it, Indonesia has a huge, potential market. Back when I was at young age, I’d watch Mexican series or what commonly known as telenovela. I remember my working mom would ask me to give her a summary of telenovela episodes she missed. #EngTalk
When i was kid, i used to watch amigos, carita de angel, maria bellene.
@EnglishTips4U when I was a little kid, Amigos and Carita de Angel are very popular telenovelas. Aah.. I miss that series :’)
@englishtips4u Amigos, Dulce Maria. Couldn’t even get near to the tele for Nickelodeon as sisters and cousins dominated it lel
Time flew, and soon I found myself among those teenagers who were obsessed with Taiwanese (F4, anyone?) and Korean series. #EngTalk
@EnglishTips4U bcs of school, I seldom watch tv for refseshing and I sleep less and tired all the time. So long time but still not clever
Me! Boys Over Flowers, F4 korea ver.
And then, there were Supernatural and Heroes and Gossip Girl which I couldn’t miss. #EngTalk
@EnglishTips4U those tv series were my life when i was in high school XD
@EnglishTips4U OWWW YEAH!! Those are my favs!
@EnglishTips4U howaaa SPN is my favorite tv series! From season 1 till now season 11, winchester boys are awesome as hell
@EnglishTips4U dont forget Friends
@EnglishTips4U and then I also watched NCIS, Agents of SHIELD, CSI, Grey’s anatomy
Just recently, Indonesian TV channels were flooded by Indian series (Mahabharata, Hatim, Mahadewa, Jodha Akbar, etc.). #EngTalk
With so many titles and genres, foreign TV series manage to find dedicated fans in Indonesia. Now, what do you think of our very own TV series? #EngTalk
@EnglishTips4U not apple 2 apple to compare our tv series w/ foreign. totally different. i still can’t move on from F.R.I.E.N.D.S
Sorry but i think our tv series are so messed up, i’ve never seen them all.
@EnglishTips4U sometimes I watch ‘Perempuan di Pinggir Jalan’ and it is worth to watch. good plot and good actor :3
Now, let’s close today’s #EngTalk with a poll. If you had only one choice, which one would you prefer? Turkish or Indonesian TV series?
