The rating score of the Mahkum (Prisoner) series, adapted from the South Korean TV series Innocent Defendant, surprised everyone. But there are also those who are not surprised. Because some of the audience had warned the Mahkum when it started to appear on the screen.
Fox TV’s series Mahkum, which is watched with excitement every week and does not go down in the ratings, came to the screen with the 19th episode of my love yesterday. The rating score of the series with last night’s episode created a shock effect. Because the double-digit rating score of the series suddenly dropped to single digits and even to the average.
There were also those who were not surprised by this situation. Because they made this warning a long time ago, when the Mahkum first appeared on the screen. These viewers drew attention to the fact that the Mahkum series continued just like the original. These viewers, who said that the original ended in 18 episodes, stated that it was very likely that the ratings of the series would drop when the main story ended and the screenwriters started adding.
As a matter of fact, it happened just as they said, and in the 19th episode, the ratings fell in half as if they were cut with a knife. This means that the Mahkum audience did not like the new scenes added by the Turkish screenwriters. This situation was directly reflected in the ratings.
In the comments made on social media, the audience’s complaints about the new version of the series came to the agenda. Serial Analysis account drew attention to this problem in a post on Twitter and wrote:
“Mahkum’s ratings can’t be explained by Ramadan or other reasons alone. The series, which is at the top in all categories, has lost all of them. If there is a drop in half from the 11 ratings, the screenwriter should put its hat in front of its and think. This shouldn’t be the second season of the series…”
Deniz Tural, who criticizes the TV series on social media, stated that he was close to quitting his favorite TV series and said, “I’m sorry to say that it was almost time for me to quit the Mahkum. I want to give a chance until the season finale is a hope, but there are no more times when I’m locked on that screen. Unfortunately, I got bored with the part,” he wrote.
The Mahkum series, starring Onur Tuna and İsmail Hacıoğlu, became the first in the ratings with its new episode aired last night. The audience was watching the Mahkum TV series every week, out of breath. However, in the last episodes, many viewers expressed that they were getting bored with Mahkum.
