Criticism of the Miniseries in Turkey

The TV miniseries "The Last Templar" was criticized in Turkeymarker by the media for misrepresenting the geography of Turkey as that of an Arabian country.[646402] In the movie, the events that take place in supposed Turkey are set in "Bodrum", which is a green region with beautiful beaches and landscape. However, the movie shows the Turkish city as an empty desert. This was criticized in Turkey for further reinforcing the misconception in the minds of average Americans that Turkey is an arid, empty country with no developments and covered with deserts similar to those found in other countries.
