This was HUGE in Turkey!
This series was so big in Turkey during the 80's! It was the first Brezilian soup opera that was shown in national television and it had such an impact on the people that today, it is still normal for our mothers to complain about being the "slave isaura" of the house when we don't help them to set the table.
I was in a boarding school and couldn't watch after the 150th episode, but I still got to learn everything that happened from my classmates who did not live in the dormitory, every day.
We all hate the evil baron and cherish the memory of squint-eyed Isaura. You were the first soup opera heroin that our mothers opened their hearts to and no Brooke (Bold&Beutiful), Sam (Generations) or Christine (Young&Restless) could ever take your place.
Except for Kunta Kinte from `Roots` maybe, but hey, he suffered a lot more!!!
