Watching TV shows to learn

2 years ago
When learning a language, I often find it useful to watch a TV show in the target language in order to practice my listening skills, as well as learn more vocabulary. However, I have to use subtitles (in the target language), otherwise the words often don't click for me.

What's your experience with using TV series as a tool to learn a language? Do you put on the subtitles and do you put them on in the target language or in your native language? And what shows do you recommend for learners of your native language?
