When the Kızılcık Şerbeti (Cranberry Sherbet) series first started, both the actors and the producer Faruk Turgut’s words were expressed as revealing that people from two different worlds actually have the same value judgments, even though they seem different from each other.
In other words, both conservative and secular families actually carry the same values in their different lives. Only in appearance, their lives are different, but they carry similar feelings and values…
We see that in the Kızılcık Şerbeti series, which proceeds on this idea and tries to reveal that families from different cultures can achieve good harmony and understand each other, this goal is now being moved away.
In the story of the Kızılcık Şerbeti series, which started its second season, male-female relationships now come to the fore even more. In addition to Kıvılcım and Ömer’s relationship, the relationship between Doğa and Fatih and the relationship between Nursema and Umut became the main topics of the series.
On the other hand, the confrontation between Alev and Pembe due to Mr. Abdullah caused the women’s conflict to reach its peak in the story of the series.
The script, which was initially written based on the thesis that cultural differences might not be so different, has now surrendered to male-female relationships and the power of love in order to maintain good ratings.
Television critic Sina Koloğlu also draws attention to this point in his evaluation on social media.
Sina Koloğlu says, “The thesis of the first season of the series, ‘different lives can also come together’, seems to be slowly giving way to ‘not so much’. Umut coming home happily after chatting about ‘I’m going to drink beer’ and Nursema going to the living room and sleeping saying ‘it smells bad of alcohol’ are the footsteps of the new era.”
As can be seen, the story structure, which has moved away from its initial purpose and was based on the possibility of conservative and secular families living together, is now disappearing.
