Yalan Dunya is the most realistic and funny series you will ever see on Turkish TV's. Gulse Birsel is a brilliant author, screen-writer, and enough of an actress. She observes people and events in real life then uses them in the scenario of the series to make us laugh. Unlike all other Turkish series and shows, Yalan Dunya does not contain any Islamic elements. Other series in Turkish networks makes Islamic propaganda, like any character who does not act according to Islamic rules always end up in worst situations possible. Not everybody in this country is Muslim, even so, it is rubbish anyway. People watch TV to have fun, not for religious teachings. Thanks to Gulse's being open-minded and modern woman of today's, she knows how a TV series should be.
Characters are well played in the series and cast choice is awesome. Ten or so major characters are created, and every one of them important like they are all in lead role, because there is no classic lead role concept in this show. All those characters have same screen time and same deep characteristics.
Gulse Birsel also published five books so far, I would recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy things from a different view of point. I am so proud of her, I wish there were more people like her in Turkey.
