Sure, 50M2 Serie you could settle in for another rewatch of The Sopranos. Our hero is Gölge, translated by the subtitles as Shadow.

Not such a random association, perhaps, since 50M2 shares with the classic ITV show a macho tone that is tongue-in-cheek but – make no mistake about it – still tough enough to see off all comers with a giant cotton bud.This Shadow (played by Engin Öztürk, Turkey’s answer to Tom Hardy), prefers to work with a handgun.
