Fox TV finally achieved the success it was looking for with Mahkum after series that made early finals one after the other due to low ratings. The series, which made a quick start to the rating war with its first episode, reached its peak with the fifth episode aired last night. However, viewers pointed out a problem with the course of the series.
The Mahkum series, which attracted attention with the acting performances of Onur Tuna and İsmail Hacıoğlu, who took the lead roles, was like a drug to Fox TV. The channel has suffered from the low ratings and early farewells of the series it has screened for a while. For this reason, it also attracted the reaction of the audience.
However, Fox TV finally found what it was looking for with the Mahkum series it kept for last in its stocks. The series, which made a rapid entry into the ratings with its first episode on the screen, reached its peak with the fifth episode that came to the screen last night.
Last night, Mahkum, in which Onur Tuna and İsmail Hacıoğlu officially cast their acting, won the first place in all categories in the ratings. With very high scores.
Of course, this situation pleased the audience as much as the channel and the TV series team. The viewers of the series expressed their happiness through their social media posts. However, he also pointed out a small problem.
Some viewers pointed out that the story in Mahkum has gone exactly the same as the original Korean drama, Defendant, so far. So no additions were made to the story. The original version of The Mahkum lasted 18 episodes. Therefore, if no additions were made to the story, the audience drew attention to the fact that The Mahkum could be short-lived.
Of course, the screenwriters will add to the story in order to continue the series, which has attracted so much attention. However, this is also a risk for the series. Additions will cause the story to branch out and go to different points.
So the Mahkum was successful, but what happens next is very important. The skill of adjusting the dose of additions to the story to prolong the series, which was very successful in the ratings, falls to the screenwriters.
