There is such a wave of criticism on social media for The Yalı Çapkını (Golden Boy), one of the most successful TV series of this season, that the production team and Star TV should not dream big for the second season by looking at the ratings.
In addition to the criticism that the two leading characters are in the background in the scenario of the series, the issues such as the Pelin character being too prominent, the discomfort felt by the characters of Zerrin and İfakat, and the prolongation of the story like chewing gum are among the biggest criticisms on social media.
Many viewers said, “How can the screenwriter not use an important couple like Ferit and Seyran, how can two successful actors be spent like this?” in the riots…
In fact, ignoring these criticisms will not be a good result, while an environment that is so harmonious and attracts the audience so much has been created. The screenwriters of the TV series, which had received high ratings before, turned a deaf ear to the criticism of the audience, and then there was a great collapse.
The second season of the Yalı Çapkını series, which did not have even the slightest problem on its set, may be a big disappointment! 1
Now, on behalf of the Yalı Çapkını, it is necessary to see that such a problem is on the agenda and that at the end of the first season, the criticism of the audience should be listened to, otherwise the big dreams set for the next season may not be as much as desired.
These intense reactions to the scenario of the Yalı Çapkını series may not cause huge losses in the ratings this season, but there will definitely be problems in attracting the audience to the screen for the next season.
Diren Polatoğulları, who played the character of Kazım in the story of the series and gave a very successful performance, said that they had a very good environment on the set. Indeed, in the information reflected from the set of the series, we hear how devoted and harmonious the team works, and that everything is in order.
Diren Polatoğulları explained that the first 3 episodes were filmed in Gaziantep and that the team had a very good fusion and explained the situation on the set with the following words:
“We spent a lot of time together in Gaziantep. Everyone got along wonderfully. It has been very good to us. We became a complete team. Everyone got along very well with each other. Not even a minor problem has arisen so far. I didn’t see anyone say anything to anyone on set. Set is a busy place. There are too many people, so tension can arise. It’s not like we’re having a lot of fun, as it looks from the outside. You go, you do business there. We get along very well with the team, as we are together a lot. I think that’s a huge factor.”
Diren Polatoğulları emphasized that the script of the series was written very well. The actor spoke as follows in his statement on the youtube account of the Sabah newspaper, long before the recent criticisms of the viewers:
“It is a well-written work. It’s a job with good direction and very good directors. There is also a click comfort compared to other works, our space is less. There is a mansion, there is a house, there is another house in fashion. 3-4 venues. He is also very useful at this pace, he can make a difference. You can care more as an art. Everything attracts better, it has its effect. Everyone does their job well, we are a successful team.”
As Diren Polatoğulları stated, there is everything for success in the Yalı Çapkını series, and this season has been paid for. However, while the criticism towards the script is increasing exponentially, ignoring this seems to bring great risks, especially for the second season.
