If you watch Lebanese series, you definitely know there is something wrong with them. Whether it’s a comedy or a drama, almost all series in Lebanon have these 7 things in common.
#1 An ultra-fancy breakfast
Come on! Who has croissants, orange juice, brie, and cakes on a huge dining table for breakfast? Except for students at Hogwarts, literally, no one has a similar breakfast every day! We need to see more man2ouches in Lebanese dramas!
#2 Mansions and luxury cars
Yes, because every single Lebanese person is that rich. And, oh! The characters can also afford to buy lunch from a fancy restaurant and not eat it because they remembered they have something important to do.
#3 Makeup and plastic surgeries
Sadly, plastic surgery is a huge part of the Lebanese society. But why is a person who is in a coma wearing makeup?
#4 “El Cherke”
In almost every Lebanese drama series, the main character owns a company. We never know what kind of company it is.
#5 Names and relationships
This is how people call each other in Lebanese series: Sami ya sadi2e, Nohad ya bent 3amme…
#6 Phone calls
Characters simply repeat every single word that the speaker at the other end of the line is saying.
#7 Behind the scenes
This is probably how they do the castings.
