I have rarely watched television over the past few years but when I do I watch situation comedies and soap operas. Indian soap operas have overwhelmed the Armenian televeision channels lately. There are channels that show more than one of them, ”Armenia TV”- ”What to CAll This Love” and “Fly/Flight”. The latter one is about a girl child who has to work as a servant at some people’s mansion. The Indian series are so primitive in their essence and underdeveloped I believe lazy housewives and women on pension watch them.
The other series that caught my attention is “Kayaran” (Armenian word for a station) which is the Armenian version of Turkish series Kara Sevda (Black Love/Endless Love). The difference between them is the Turkish version lasts for almost two and half an hour and the Armenian ones are half an hour. I watched an episode of Kayaran the other day and a character Arpi asked her husband Arno to bring their child home for the whole episode. The husband was in criminal affairs and Arpi believed Arno took away their child to punish her. Below are Nihan (Neslihan Atagül) and (Qristine Kuyumchyan) with their lovers. Do you notice the girls look alike with a little narrow eyes?
