I know many will like one of the favorite characters of this show: Little orphan Strawberry!! Ok, her name is actually Çilek, which means strawberry, in Turkish -one look at her hair and you’ll know why!
Another important character is Firuze : She is the housekeeper for the family, but much more than that, she is a stabilizing force for the kids, and also a connection to a world that they would otherwise have little direct connection with -the working class world.
Then, there is the Turkish equivalent of Bewitched subplot, with magical (usually bumblingly) mother-in-law Dudu interfering in everyone’s lives, mostly not for the best, until forced to do so.
Main chars were mentioned last week, along with an explanation of this wonderful family show.
Next week, we look at the opening credits: Turkish Tuesdays: Sihirli Annem (My Magical Mother): Cute Theme Song! ;
And then, the following week I hope to start reviewing this series, at last!
1.) Share two different sources related to the Sihirli Annem series, and to the Harry Potter tie ins to this series.
2.) Share your thoughts on how a TV show might help, or hinder, inclusive thinking,
3.) Write a story, post or tweet that uses it.
