The first episode of the series “Ruthless,” (Gaddar) which premiered on Friday, January 19, marked Çağatay Ulusoy’s return to the screen after a seven-year hiatus. The ratings for the first episode closely mirrored those of Çağatay’s previous TV series, “Insider.”

We all know that how the first episode ends doesn’t determine how well the TV show will do in the future. Nonetheless, audience reactions have been overwhelmingly positive, with repeat showings garnering respectable ratings. Only time will tell if the expectations of fans will be met, and if there will be continued growth.

Social media user activity indicates that this is quite likely. For three consecutive days, Çağatay Ulusoy’s series “Ruthless” (Gaddar) and “Kubra” have remained trending on the X network (formerly Twitter). Additionally, “Ruthless” has accumulated 3.8 million views on YouTube within a day, topping the platform’s trends. It’s noteworthy that similar statistics were achieved by its competitor, the series “Golden Boy,” during its premiere on a Friday. The second competitor, the series “Cranberry Sherbet,” managed to reach this view count two weeks after the release of its first episode.

An interesting fact: the series incorporated the song “Gaddar” by the renowned Anatolian rock artist Erkin Koray in its musical theme. The copyrights for this song were obtained from Erkin Koray’s daughter, Damla Koray. A particular highlight was a gesture in the first episode, where the name of the legendary artist was inscribed on a ferry. Damla Koray, Erkin Koray’s daughter, was moved by this gesture and expressed gratitude to the team, deeming it especially significant. It looks like the music will make this show special.
