Is it effective watching series to learn a language? What serie do you recommend?

Hi! I'm learning English and I love to watch series. I'm watching now a serie called "Murdoch Mysteries", in English, without subtitles. It's been difficult, but I can understand and follow almost of the story. The accent is from Toronto, nineteen century, what makes the understanding a little bit difficult I think. But I love the stories, so I'm keeping watching it.


And you? Do you watch series? What serie in English do you recommed?

I believe that watching English TV shows is really helpful to learn English! 

I have been watching "Friends" since I started learning English 3 years ago. I like the way they make jokes, and that encourages me to keep listening and practicing speaking their words. I was not able to understand what they were talking at the first, but now I am able to watch it without subtitle! Plus, my friends who speak English told me that my English skill improved after I started using "Friends Vocabulary." :D

If you really recommend "Murdoch Mysteries," I will try it after finish Friends :)

Series have helped me, so I recommend them. I also think they are better than movies, because they give you time to get used to accents and specific vocabulary.
