It's so sad that Italki removed comment editing feature. After I submitted the comment I had noticed a mistake. It should be like this:

As for British English, I love "The Thin Blue Line" sitcom starring Rowan Atkinson and "The IT Crowd" sitcom.

Hello Kane.

I love FRIENDS sitcom. The actors sound more clear to me comparing to actors of Scrubs or House M.D. series. I noticed a couple of days ago that I cannot watch FRIENDS in Russian translation anymore. Lots of jokes are almost untranslatable and lose their meaning. I prefer not to understand a few words but sense the tone of actor's voices. And I try to learn the words I do not understand by looking them up in dictionaries. I also looking forward to watch "The Big Bang Theory" in English.

For me, FRIENDS is the best way of cheering myself up and learning American English. As for British English I love "The Thin Blue Line" and "The IT Crowd" sitcoms starring Rowan Atkinson. I love how British English sounds but it is more difficult for me to pronounce.

P.S. I also a fan of Mythbusters. I watched a few episodes in English and I found them very easy to understand.
