This will be useful for us who are in the first stages of learning?
Hi, I think is hard to recommend you some French TV series as France is not a country known to produce good series, the most well-know French TV series is Plus belle la vie but it's like a soap opera. In France you have some good shows but it's about debates, otherwise you have good documentaries. Maybe it can be good to watch these ones to get some vocabulary about specific topics. The rest is about American series.
I'm also trying to learn French. I've been watching foreign films on Netflix to help me with hearing the pronounciation.
I'm not a native speaker but I have watched The Returned (Les Revenants) and I liked it.
You can also find the French version of the Simpsons easily on torrent.
I hope this might help!
If you can acccess to this, you have http://www.canalplus.fr/. It's a french TV and they have a lot of good programm.
