Midnight at the Pera Palace series, which is broadcast on Netflix, is still talked about a lot. Although there were some criticisms about the series in which Hazal Kaya, Tansu Biçer and Selahattin Paşalı took the lead roles, the praising comments from abroad and the huge viewing figures of the series in many countries in a short time were proof of success.
Hazal Kaya was the most criticized actress for her performance. Although the actress did not dwell on these criticisms, her colleagues made several attempts to defend her. However, the interesting thing is that a series that was so criticized in Turkey made great gains for Netflix abroad.
The Midnight at the Pera Palace series, which was also praised by Hollywood Insider, also opened a new door for the Turkish TV series industry. We don’t have many shows on time travel. Investing in this area will not be very attractive for Turkish television channels.
However, such productions are of great importance for viewers with a different perspective gathered on digital platforms. At this point, the door was opened for the development of time travel stories with the series “Midnight at the Pera Palace”…
Anibal Güleroğlu, one of the writers of Milliyet Blog, drew attention to this point in her review article and made the following comment:
“Midnight at the Pera Palace” series, which tries not to neglect the fantastic aspect of the work while aiming to deal with time travel by combining historical personalities and events, is inevitably becoming more remarkable.
Although it is still very new as a domestic production in this genre, it is a series that should not be underestimated and has a better performance than many foreign works. The production, which managed to rise to the first place in the Top 10 list, proved its success as the ‘Most watched TV series’ in 25 countries, even though it was subject to some criticism from us.”
