La hija del embajador on Univision
Another show I'm way behind on and knowing now that this is one with multiple seasons and an actress change, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it.
Do we know if uni will break apart the two seasons with other shows, or will they continue straight through to season 2? I keep hearing at the end, the UNI narrator says these are the final episodes of season 1 but he didn’t mention when or if season 2 would start.
...(Possible spoiler alert!)....
I read somewhere in the Turkish gossip publications (translated via google) that Neslihan (Nare) was written off and they slid a new lead actress into the storyline. One of the other main characters Gediz leaves a few episodes after Nare. According to what I saw, she is last seen in Turkish episode 36, and since epis are usually between 2-3 hours each I think her departure (for US UNI) will be many weeks from now if the seasons are contiguous/adjacent. We are in Turkish ep 14 as of Friday. The season 1 finale is episode 17.
I also read the producers were so ticked off, they did something spiteful on-screen against these two actors. At some point there is a scene occurring where someone is cleaning windows and they had a mocked-up newspaper with both actors pictures on it, and a phony headline...crumbled it up and used it to clean the window.
I was was disappointed about these cast changes, but I think I will stick with it for a while longer. I’m still watching a lot of teevee while my fur baby is ill.
I reconsidered…so far this show has been very interesting to watch, although I don’t like the music compared to some of the other Turkish shows.
…but if it’s true that the producers did something spiteful to the actress, that’s a shame, and a horrible way to treat someone who is suffering. From what I gleaned via the internet, the actress playing Nare has leaky gut, and a few different sources I found said she is/was very sick and lost a lot of weight in a very short time. After thinking about how bad the producers (allegedly) treated her I will probably stop watching when the first season ends. In Turkey there was a long break between seasons, and the narrator keeps saying we are in ultimas (can’t remember if he said semanas or caps), so we may not even have an opportunity to watch the next season anyway.
Another article I found said the series finale in Turkey is tomorrow May 10th and the total number of episodes is 51.
I really do appreciate the time you took to write up the recaps. They helped me (and my mom) understand a lot of the details we missed while watching.
Happy Mother’s Day to all.
I don't know about the spitefulness towards Neslihan Atagul, but in my experience people aren't kind when you have to stop doing what they want you to do so you can take care of yourself. I wouldn't be surprised.
I'm just having such a hard time keeping up with this one. I like it, but it's really heavy.
Being home way more than usual these days with the fur baby, I’m watching way more tv than normal. I started watching Sefirin Kizi (El hija) on YouTube and I’m way ahead now. There is a caption option on YT that transcribes what they are saying in Turkish, so at least it’s helping me learn some of the more common parts of the language. It seems accurate enough to follow, although when I try to translate sometimes it doesn’t make much sense so it’s not always correct. It’s still way better than nothing and sometimes I can catch when it’s wrong based on what I hear them saying. I’m still undecided if I’m going to keep watching to the end. I am glad we will at least have the option to watch the next season on UNI.
@kat, did you decided to stop watching, or are you still tuned in?
I think I've pretty much stopped watching. I overextended myself!
