Default Magnificent Century

Thanks to Netflix, I've become addicted to a Turkish 'soap opera' ....... Magnificent Century.

Imagine 'The Tudors' or 'The Borgias', but set in 15th century Turkey --- The court of Ottoman Sultan, Suleyman the Magnificent.

The subtitles are a pain, but I don't see myself learning Turkish just to watch a period piece soap opera .........

Will have to check to see if it's available in Canada. I watched Italian soaps for a while in my early 20s...no subtitles. Gave it up after about a year, and switched to Coronation Street. No subtitles there, either.

rb - I just found it on YouTube after reading the recommendation.

I'm chomping down on a gazillion, varied episodes of American Experience... fun stuff!

Okay, it's being pissy on this platform. YouTube plays it - trust me. Just tab up YouTube & type Magnificent Century into the title box up top.
