New Turkish Tuesdays Show: Sihirli Annem (My Magical Mother)

I have been waiting a long time to start reviewing a series that I know Violet will like, as will all who enjoy hopeful family shows, with fun, meaning, and magic!  sihirli_annem_logosu

This show has been my all time favorite family show, and maybe even my all time favorite show ever, since I first saw and fell in love with it when I lived in Izmir in 2005.

The show features a fairy mother, Betüş, who marries a ‘normal’ human man, Sadık, who does not know that she and her family are fairies.  Humans are not allowed to see them doing magic, so this makes life interesting for all concerned.  Sadık has two children, who are not so sure about this new step-mother of theirs, at first.  The red-head in the featured image is a little kid we will learn more about later!   🙂      As a language-learning side comment, I love the name Sadık, which literally means “loyal” in Turkish.  And loyal he is, as we will find out in time.

It also features the late Defne Joy Foster, EdaDjF an American-Turkish actress who was well loved, as Eda, the sister of Betüş, who is the star of the show.   I love Eda’s character arc in the series, as she goes from following their mother’s lead, to learning to stand up for herself as an independent thinker.

More important chars coming next week!


Soon, the week after next week, probably, I hope to start reviewing this series, at last!
