Danish tv shows, music and movies as recommended by a dane
I see increasingly more people interested in learning Danish. So I decided to make you guys a list with media ressources to help you increase your skills in understanding, speaking and writing danish - as recommended by a dane (of nationality, not ethnicity). Sometimes it can be difficult to find authentic material to practice with in your target language that are actually widely seen/heard in the country that speaks the language. Danish translation below.
Jeg ser oftere og oftere flere mennesker der interesserer sig for at lære dansk. Så jeg besluttede mig for at lave jer en liste med medie ressourcer til at hjælpe jer med at øge jeres evner i at forstå, tale og skrive dansk - anbefalet af en dansker (af nationalitet, ikke etnicitet). Nogen gange kan det være vanskeligt at finde autentisk materiale at øve sig med i det sprog du lærer som faktisk er populære i det land som taler sproget. Engelsk oversættelse over.
Sorry if the list is complete chaos, it was quite a spontaneous idea.

I hope this helps a little bit! I thought I could press enter and start a new line but clearly I can't. Sorry for the mess!
I would recommend "Olsen Banden" as well, since they have heaps of repeats. They might be a bit old, but still good fun. Also "Langt fra Las Vegas" or "Klovn". Both are sitcoms and very popular. On the musicfront I would very much recommend the band TV2, because their danish is pretty easy to understand and they do not go crazy on speed or slang. If you are willing to go a bit into children´s TV, then "Hr Skæg" is amazing. In general I would say that the free TVstation "DR ramasjang" or "DR Ultra" is recommendable. But of cource, it is kids tv.
It is very difficult to find danish in BA or Argentina in general. But there are some danish clubs around. I am sorry that I dont know in BA but I know there is in Bariloche for example and since the biggest danish society should be Tres Arroyos in Bounos Aires provins I am guessing there must be something in the city. I have a friend whose wife is from Bounos Aires and he might know something, if it is very important to you.
Hah! I am questionably proud that I can sing along to almost every song you have listed. Perks of partying 5 months straight in Denmark I guess, haha.
Some other songs I really like are:
- Burhan G - Kalder Mig Hjem
- Burhan G - Din For Evigt
- Christopher - CPH Girls (Not in Danish but hey it's super catchy and well, accurate.)
- Enrico Black - Ta' Dine Stiletter Af (I KNOW this one is a bit lame but oh well.)
Anddddd a Danish university party classic for me -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYAvPlfz88c
And a favorite show of mine is definitely Bron/Broen/The Bridge.
Tusind tak for listen!
