  1. Currantly wrapping up season two, helping me deal with the quarantine; enjoying the series. though I think “Baba Candir ” is a bit better, more comical & entertaining. Love Turkish movies & series, beautiful scenery, interesting culture. The shows are addictive I sometimes use Turkish Phrases like. “Allah Hallah & press my thumb against my upper teeth when suprised

  2. Wonderful series…. loved Mazhar and Reyhan, my 2 favourite characters… also enjoyed Eda, Fakhrie and Haluk… can you provide me with a listing of the songs that were played during series? I looked at show with english subtitles, totally loved the lyrics of songs….

  3. hi where can i watch it with english subtitle?

  4. Will there be season 4???.i just love this turkish drama.well done Ayshem n omar n the rest of the team..Bisous

  5. I became addicted to this show. Even though I loved some of the characters and hated others, I had to stay with it until the end. I was crying like a baby when Nezih died. But I found that he most probably left the show to star in a movie for which, I reckon, he will receive an award. I found Ayshem quite annoying at times. She was very immature although her mothering skills to her two girls was admirable. Omer was far too understanding at times. I was glad to see the last of Omer’s mother and father. By the way, for someone who said they didn’t know the mother’s name, it was NADIDE. Seda also drove me to distraction. I found hers and Turkan’s acting was a little stiff. I absolutely disliked Ayshem’s aunt and uncle. She was vicious and thoughtless and he was an absolute dill. Ayshem’s father Nail and Aunt Eda were lovely. She seemed to disappear at the end of Series 3. When I looked for the name of the actor who played Reyhan’s fiance, there was no reference to him in the list of cast members. Can someone tell me who he was. I loved him. I’m so glad he finally got rid of the dipsy, spiteful red-head. I loved Haluk and Fahriye. I had hoped they would get together as a couple at the end of Series 3. Haluk grew on me and if you could keep up with the words he spoke in the English translation, he actually made a lot of sense. Some of the translations were confusing as nieces were called nephews and his was her’s and so on. I love the scenery and I love the Turkish lifestyle, at last how it is depicted in these types of shows. It is so different to my Australian way of life, but the basics for a nice family life are the same everywhere. Let’s share the love.

    • Hello. Reyhan’s fiance Mazhar was played by Umut Kurt.
      I think the couple “Reyhan and Mazhar” was great. I am glad you liked this favourite show of mine. It is interesting to find out how Turkish series and Turkish culture represented in them are seen from other parts of the world. Greetings.

  6. I think you and Umut Kurt are great in Love me as I am, I hope to see the two of you again in another series.
    You have great chemistry,hated to see the series end,

  7. Got hooked on it, but then that 5 year gap spoiled everything! Hoe can they get rid of so many of the characters? Ayshem acting is so amateur, screwing up her face and screaming and talking like a market seller! She made the Turkish language sounded as a no class language! Rehan just over did her acting! Not funny when she pulls the stupid faces!
    Seda had class, just wished there were more story line for her and Furkan. Im still watching on Netflix and hope it’s not going to be a disappointment!!
    Oh! Reha also acted sooooo stupid!! Terrible acting!!

  8. I just started watching the show in England on Netflix but now I am in Dubai and Netflix doesn’t have it. Is there anywhere else I can watch this drama.

  9. I hope there is a season 4 … I am in love with all the characters the relationships amongst friends were outstanding I love how they were loyal and always there for each other… this show became addictive .. I even had my sister watching it she just finished too. I was a little confused about the beginning of the season as well… I wished for Seda and Furkan with all the obstacles that they would have married and had a happy ending as well…

  10. When is episode 10 off nobody knows

  11. Season 3 of Love me as I am was a total let down,I couldn’t stop watching Season 1and 2.Season 3,the first serie was very disappointing because most of the actors left the show, which ruined the whole thing.They started up again 5 years later after the gun shots went off and it left you completely in the dark.

  12. I have fallen in love with Turkish movies. Love me as I am, I have been watching day and night for three weeks. Netflix has done a wonderful job of providing these films.
    I am anxiously awaiting season 4. It makes me want to travel to Turkey. I was there before it was dangerous for US travelers. Perhaps these films will help to shine a light on many Turkish people who are just like us.

  13. I am so disappointed with Love Me As I Am.After watching many of the Turkish love dramas;I chose this comedy. As usual, after watching series one and two, series three was a big change. I was so upset that I skimmed through it, and decided to abandon the series. How can you leave gunshots at the end of season two, and carry on the season three with mainly a new story, and new characters. Would someone tell me what happened in that five year span,because i don’t want to se the rest. I no longer like it. Who did Bork shoot? What happened with Furkan’s marriage to Seda? How did Anshyem graduate? What is going on?
    Thank you

  14. I just finished watching season 3 of Love me As I am on Netflix. I liked the ending overall but i must say I hated the fact that Tolga and Zeyno broke up – and that too after so many hurdles. Is there truly a season 4??

  15. Whatis the name of Sevinc?

  16. Sorry, there is one other thing that I would like to say about this Drama. The translation from Turkish to English was not very good. There were a lot of mistakes. In the conversations, they kept calling a him, a her or vice versa. They need to get their genders correct. But, what the heck., I am just happy for anyone to attempt to translate these Turkish Dramas so I can watch them. So, whoever translated ….thank you very much.

  17. Just finished watching Love me as I am on Netflix-season 1-3. I have watched about 7-8 Turkish Dramas to date. I enjoy watching them as I learn about the country of Turkey and the people and it is pure entertainment. This is the first Comedy that I have watched. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I found my self laughing out loud at times and giggling like a child the rest of the time. The Romance of Omer and Aysem was really cute. But, I was annoyed by Aysem at times. She was a 20 year old college student who was innocent and naïve but she was playing this part like a twelve year old child. Even when she was 25 years old and a college professor, she was still acting like a twelve year old child. She kept talking fast and trying to be funny when she needed to play the straight part and leave the funny to the comedians. I loved watching Fahriye and Reyhan. They were so funny and their sister-friend relationship was heartwarming. You should have left Haluk out of the show. Every time that hairy faced, blubbering man came on screen, I would fast forward so I did not have to listen to his mouth. Someone needed to shave his head and face and stick a sock in his mouth. I think he is probably a good comedian but I could not handle this type of nonsense. He graduated from college but he ran around blubbering like the village idiot???? Did not get it at all. The man that played Omer’s father was the most horrible man I have ever seen. I was glad when he left the show but I do not understand how he and wife retired to Brazil when all they had was taken from them. Where did they get the money? I am still scratching my head about the ending of season 2 and the beginning of season three. Half of the characters disappeared and all these new characters were introduced. It was confusing and I did not like that. Why did you do that?? Well, overall, I truly enjoyed the comedy. It was light and funny and I looked forward to watching another episode.

    I need to say that being a non-Turkish person, I have not been a fan of Turkish music. It was just too different from what I am familiar with. However, I really enjoyed the music that was in this drama. The song Love me as I am was beautiful. Many of the other songs, and music was really nice. I enjoyed listening to it. You need to keep the person who selected all this music as in my opinion, he or she did a great job.

    Season three ended abruptly and I have read that there is a season four but I cannot find it on YouTube. Is there a season four? I would really like to watch the rest of this show.

    • Hi Judy Ellison, I too have just finished Love Me As I am/ Beni Boyle Sev series one, two & three on UK Netflix. I am surprised I stayed with it so long as I am not a huge fan of romantic comedies usually, I love Turkish series but usually prefer one with a bit of a thriller and or gangster aspect. However as you say, this was an excellently acted comedy which grows on you after a while and is genuinely funny.

      I do agree with you partly about Ayshem who I too, started to find annoying but then I am aware that I soon get bored of the main couple’s romance in Turkish dramas anyway and the eternal focus on the heroine/ her face, basically. However I came to the conclusion that they were actually depicting the fact that Ayshem was a bit, or minorly mad/ insane. As was Haluk, just a little. Yes, he is highly educated but it is left to us to wonder if he is a bit mad too. Although he often does put on that schtick, on purpose, to get people to stop questioning him as to something specific. I think this was implied, that his friends realised he was a bit ‘out there’ and so was Ayshem. She herself refers, in the beginning, to “my obsessions” which she admits she does get. When she has the influence of hormones or extra stress in her life; then this side of her mental make-up comes out so to speak. Well that was my take on it anyway. Plus she really is naive as you say, she has been brought up as a much adored single child in a small village by an adoring father so she has led a sheltered life and also been spoiled, not materially but emotionally as she is used to getting her own way in everything! This is shown in the early series as Ayshem basically sulking with Omer when he doesn’t agree or give in to her.

      However Ayshem does grow up over the series and becomes more adult. Yet overall she is basically still the same self as is shown at the University when she describes it to someone going for a job there as “pretend to be very serious, they like that”! They deliberately, I felt, show Ayshem stomping along in her high heels because she was never really used to wearing them, lol.

      There is a deliberate contrast and depiction of the different cultures within which Ayshem and Omer and his friends, have been brought up in. Ayshem does experience things differently and seems to live in a more emotional realm than Omer and his friends do.

      This is an ongoing theme in Turkish dramas, to compare and contrast the different cultures and outlooks of the working class characters, usually from the countryside, versus the middle or upper class, often urban characters. It is the classic compare and contrast of ‘traditional’ versus ‘modern’ cultural /family values. Although it is never as clearly cut and dried as this though in practice as these dramas show us.

      My take on Haluk was that he was brilliant but a wee bit mad but he also came from the countryside, near to where Ayshem came from, although exactly where was all a bit vague. Accepting Haluk for how he was: was an example of the group’s tolerance to the viewer I felt.

      Haluk is actually the lynchpin of the entire series in the beginning as it is he who helps out both Ayshem and her father and brings many of the characters together if you notice.

      For me it was Reyhans’ interminable gurning and exaggerated facial expressions for a period that nearly had me giving up. I mean, surely she is more than a bit mad too!

      Again, this is depicting the tolerance of the group to different people I think. They are all similar but different yet broadly agree on things.

      I would point out that Turkish dramas often have a comedy character or duo, in the ancient style of Shakespeare’s plays, there was often a ‘fool’ who comes on and speaks to the audience or clowns around. This happens in Intersection/ Filinta to name a couple off the top of my head.

      With respect, you may be taking things too seriously to be so annoyed at Haluk and Reha, I mean Reha was meant to be over the top evil, yet there were times he breaks down with emotion as it is all based on the love of his son really..

      Reha and his wife (did we ever find out her name?) were hilariously and excellently acted comedy characters. If you do not happen to come from a from a culture who accepts that much interference in a son’s life from their parents-you will find them even more incomprehensible but funny and mad at the same time! But I do think they were meant to be a caricature of such parents that everybody can understand.
      Nb. It was explained at some point that they retired to Brazil as it was cheaper to live there and they didn’t want to be seen by any of their rich friends in Turkey in their new circumstances..

      What happened at the end of series two is explained in detail in episode One, you have to listen out for it, around 1:24 minutes in a character asks another: so what happened?

      I agree about the music in Turkish dramas, it does sneak up on you and after a while really grows on you and is an extra informative key to the action and emotion happening at various times too! ie. It takes on a language of its own. I particularly liked the main theme tune sung by Orhan Gencebey, wonderful singing and baritone voice. 🙂

      Agreed about series four-where is it? This always happens with Turkish series-nooooooooo!

      • Omer’s mother is called Nadide. I agree with you about Haluk. He is no different to a lot of very clever and talented people – just a little over the top. Like you say, Turkish shows have made me addicted to them on Netflix. Just love them, especially “Intersection”, “Ertugrul: Resurrection” and many others including “What Happens to my Family”. I was pleased when Reha and Nadide (Omer’s parents), Ayshem’s aunt and uncle and Seda and Turkan didn’t reappear in Season 3. Omer’s father and Ayshem’s aunt Safiye drove me mad with their nastiness and ranting. How mum and dad got to South America when they had no money (and were headed to jail I think?) is a complete mystery. On the whole, I had to watch it to the very end as I enjoyed most the show. The title song IS lovely and quite different to the usual Turkish music. Talking about emotion, I cried when Nezih died. I was a wreck for half a day. I thought Rehan and Mazhar’s romance was beautiful, but frustrating when Mazhar seemed to take an age to tell his dipsy redheaded fiance to get lost.

  18. For anyone wondering what happened at the end of series two and why series three seems different: series three is five years later.

    & We get our answer as to what on earth happened at the end of series two 1:25:43 into episode one of series three!

    Nb. I can’t believe there is another series, four and as yet, Netflix doesn’t have it, not again! Nor is it with English subtitles on Youtube.

  19. What happened between season 2 and 3 of the Turkish drama “Love Me as I Am”? New characters are introduced, and others disappeared? It’s almost like there were missing episodes in between?

    • OK, I was wondering this too, it was very confusing, I skimmed through the next few episodes of series three trying to make sense of it and in particular, the ending of the last episode of series two! But then I gave up after much research and fining nothing except the Turkish wikipedia page for this series which does give some information about characters-but warning-as per usual contains spoilers, but still gave me no answers as to what I was looking for.

      So i settled down to watch episode one of series three. At precisely 1 hour 25 minutes in at approximately 43 seconds-a character asks exactly what the viewer wants to know-ie. what happened at the end of series two??? You will get your answers there. Long story short-series three is five years later..Nb. Don’t tell me there is another series-four-and no English subtitles for it-it’s not on Netflix either. Noooooooo, not again!

    • I too was confused, I did a lot of research but found no answers. Finally I settled down to watch episode one of series three and at 1 hour and 25 minutes into the episode at approximately 43 seconds in after that: you get your answer. As to what happened at the end of series two. Because a character asks exactly this question! Long story short-series three is five years later..

      Nb. I can’t believe there is a series four and we so far can’t get it in English subtitles, not again! It’s not on Netflix or Youtube. Noooooooo!..

    • It is five years later in series three.

      Then, one hour and 25 minutes and 43 seconds into episode One of series three-we get our answer as to what happened at the end of series Two…

  20. @Cheryl Anne see youtube link for song on Beni Boyle Sev 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-T_ZhhaFj-Q
    most beautiful song indeed <3

  21. Is there a season 4 on Beni Boyle Sev teleseries at all? 😳

  22. @gurhan, thank you so much for posting the song! I’ve been searching and it seemed impossible to find!

  23. Does anyone know where I can watch season 4?

    • I would love to see .more of this show, I have laughed and cried, not something I do with many shows now, most of them have no meaning of life, I would love to see season 4, I wished we could at least but the CD’s somewhere, I live in a small US town and I am 65, grew up with Tammy movies, Elvis Presley and westerns. Now TV is such a disappointment. Thank You

  24. Who is the actor who plays Mazhar in Love Me As I Am? Seems everyone is listed except him……….

  25. Can someone let me know if series has happy or sad ending. I don’t want to devote my time and energy to series that ends negatively. I get involved emotionally and don’t want to do that to myself. Thanks in advance ☺️

    • Loved it .loved the story. Watch it over and over. Wish I could travel to turkey.trying to learn the language ( very difficult). This story got me hooked on all turkish story’s.

      • I feel exactly the same way as you Olga and if I was younger, I’d get to see those beautiful places in Turkey, see the people and get to know some of the language. As it is, my son and I use the word EVET (yes) a lot, as well as Gunedin (which is good-morning). Don’t know if it’s spelled correctly though. I loved Umut Kurt (Mazhar) who also has a very nice singing voice, as well as liking lots of other characters but didn’t like a few others – too wordy and cruel eg. Omer’s dad Reha and Ayshem’s aunt Safiye I think. I enjoyed Haluk, eventually. He is like so many very talented and clever people – just a little over the top. I have watched a lot of great Turkish TV series as well as a couple of movies and my favourite was “Ertugrul: Resurrection” as it tells about the beginning and rise of the Ottoman Empire. Very, very interesting. You should try it but it is a very, very long series, so make the time if you can.

    • I have just binge watched all three seasons on Netflix and enjoyed it very much even though I am an English speaking South African. The subtitles were a great help thank you. I hope there will be season 4 so that we can see the wedding of Mazhar and Reyhan and how they work through their struggle to have a baby. It would be great if some of the characters from season 1 could come back; like Seda and Furkan. Also would like to see Fahriye meet someone.
