      Love is in the Air is also known as “Yer Gok Ask”. Yes, its Eng sub is not available on YouTube but you can find this series with English sub at kinemania.tv. There could be chances of paid videos or many pop-ups ads but I think it’s fair. I didn’t find any news about Intersection session 4 but you can get all news on its twitter handler or here. You can translate it. 🙂

      Hi Saied!

      Though Turkish dramas are aired in different countries with their languages. But, most of them are only available with English Subtitles on the web.

  11. “Baraj” is also a lovely drama which you can add to this list.

    • DigitalCruch

      Thanks for suggestion Candy 🙂 We would definitely include it in our list.

  12. Thank you for such a detailed content.
    Useful.
    But I have watched “Şahsiyet” (and it wasn’t mentioned) and I’m looking for something like that; could you please help me.

    • DigitalCruch

      Thanks Fatemeh for your kind words. Şahsiyet is basically a mini TV series, and its niche is crime and mystery.
      Our list also includes many TV series like that. You can consider Halka, Kuzgun, Cukur, Dip, Subat, Ramo, Ariza and Filinta to watch.

  13. Josie Dunn

    I have been watching Lale Devi with English subtitle I just see a few episodes, but I can’t find anymore. Can someone help me and please where I can find the rest? I started so many Turkish Episode subtitles in English but so disappointed they show a few in English. They stop. Why so many people in the world speak English and love watching Turkish programs they are gorgeous, so please someone can help me and tell me where I can find them.

    Thank you.
    Regards Josie.
