The Zeytin Ağacı (Olive Tree) series, which is expected to be broadcast on Netflix on July 28, was a long-talked production. The series, which was initially pronounced with the title Another Self, was shot last year and was an eagerly awaited project.
Netflix’s sharing trailers about the series and announcing that it will be released on July 28 increased the excitement. However, those who watch the trailers and make negative comments about the series also draw attention. The most expressed criticism of Zeytin Ağacı is that it is a ‘cliché TV series’.
Many viewers state that the script is a familiar story and that their interest in the series has decreased when they look at the trailers.
Of course, the negative perception created by those who make these comments before sitting down and watching the series is spreading. Those who think that Tuba Büyüküstün and Murat Boz are a very good couple and want to see how they are in the story are very excited.
So, what is the main reason for the criticism of those who find the series as a cliché? A viewer gives an important idea with what he writes about it. The audience says, “Actually, it’s not that it’s a cliché story, basically all movies are clichés. But it catches you from somewhere. We know every detail scene in the trailer by heart, there is nothing from us, even the dialogues are copy paste. Even if it’s the same story, but the dialogues are more real, something more of us… It’s like we’re watching any Hollywood movie dubbed. That’s why, although the story is beautiful, the way it is told is very memorized.”
There are also comments stating that he narrowed down after watching the trailer and his interest in the story decreased. Those who eagerly await the Zeytin Ağacı, which is often criticized for being unoriginal, see such comments as too early.
While some viewers stated that they were very curious about the series, the following comment is noteworthy: “I am particularly curious about this series, namely the beauty of harmony is legendary, there is a man like Murat Boz, there is a very nice cast like Seda Bakan and Tuba Büyüküstün. Actually, I don’t understand people, it’s a cliché, that’s what happened, that’s what happened. What do you want?
Those who send messages to Netflix and say why they include such repetitive stories also draw attention on social media.
As a result, the Zeytin Ağacı series creates the agenda in the social media environment with both positive and negative criticism before it is broadcast. Some criticize, others share their excitement. It is already very curious how the views of the audience will be shaped after the series is broadcast.
