Just finished the Protector. I don’t know why but the show reminded me of Netflix’s failing “Iron Fist”.  The only reason I finished the first season was to see places where the scenes took place. I kind of missed Istanbul. I guess scenes from  Istanbul might be attractive for Netflix’s international audience, too. There are good shots for them. and I should add the soundtrack. I like the soundtrack list. Some Turks are asking for another chance because this is the first TV show from Turkey in the Netflix portfolio. But one should remember that the Turkish TV series industry has already (and unexpectedly) become internationally famous. Besides, Narcos and La Casa del Papel are Netflix’s non-American products that are very successful. So one expects a much better-written plot and better acting. It is not too terrible to watch but the expectations are higher…
