A missed chance: perhaps a "Sinbad" or "Xena"-like series would come out!
"Karaoglan" is a TV adaptation of Suat Yalaz's famous novel character of a Turkish hero. I was expecting a good TV show. Yesilcam had made "Karaoglan" films, but it was a first timer as a TV series with a new generation to act. Tugba Unsal was quite good as Bayir Gulu, and Ozlem Tekin acted well as the dark princess Zenka. But the same old story: 1. Turkish cinema sector has a serious problem with writing. The plot is not good. It is not moving: the story has not an inner tension unfolding with unexpected developments and still having a continuity. Time is not used effectively. 2. What else? We need professional assistance for action choreography. It is not working anymore with the old action masters of Yesilcam. The main character "Karaoglan" should have been trained for ex. for action scenes.
There might emerge a "Sinbad", or "Xena", or "Hercules" out of this story, and might have a chance for international market. Despite all these criticisms, I regard "Karaoglan" as a correct project, but I cannot say "Well done!" for it. A good idea is just an idea, you cannot make people watch an idea. What matters is the quality of the work - how you perform it on the screen. Put some more money, get professional assistance for action choreography, and only pay for the talent (being handsome is not enough to get the main role).
