    I considered that the adjustment of OC in Turkish television was successful With a good cast of actors And naturally one of the protagonists Cagatay embodies very well the role of Ryan He is a promising actor and will see many things from him in the future !!!

    Turkish dizies are so much interesting and for sure Ay Yapim has only successes to present. This time Medcezir is a strong one with a strong cast. Among them the face that has already created a huge fan club all over the world. Cagatay Ulusoy is the most charming actor that has influenced amazinglly with his previous performance, his unforgettable acting in AFK. Its absolutely certain we wont forget him at this one !!

  4. Cagatay ulusoy the Turkish protagonist is very talented and experienced .In addition to his handsome look .He is world-widely beloved. His known for his magnificent convincing performance.

    I wonder what the HAM O.C. remake will be like? Cuz I don’t think Turkey tastes so good!

  8. OMG! I can’t wait to hear Turkish Luke say, “Orange County, bitch!”, in (duh) Turkish. I couldn’t understand anything since the trailer has no subtitles but this one looks very promising! The OC is still the best teen soap for me. Nothing beats the original but this one is worth looking forward to. I’m excited!

  9. I don’t watch tv much but there are some news about The O.C arriving in Turkey as Medcezir after 10 years which is not true. Medcezir is a remake of The O.C with Warner Bros for Star TV in Turkey that’s correct but The O.C among other TV series from U.S and around the World was shown in Turkey already, including myself we watched The O.C in Turkey before people know about the remake and they’d like to watch a remake again. Also original Gossip Girl was shown in Turkey as well with it’s Turkish remake :)

      I couldn’t agree more. The OC was the best show ever and since it has been 10 years since it first aired, we should totally get a remake or a reunion
