THE DELIGHTS OF INTERNATIONAL BINGE WATCHING
I have returned to Resurrection: Ertugrul. Things are getting interesting in Episode 49 [don't start!] The subtitles continue to delight. The bad guy, who is the blood brother of the Shah, father of the hero, is pushing the hero's brother for the slot of next shah. The subtitles repeatedly have him referring to this sturdy young warrior as "my niece." Apparently, there is something about Turkish that mixes up "niece" and "nephew" in translation. Either that or this is Turkey's #metoo moment.
