Russian tv series and movies- your experience and recommendations

Hello! I'm learning russian and I want to watch some tv series and movies in russian, but the good, quality ones. It doesn't matter how fast the actors speak, but it has to be interesting and +/- funny. I have seen some episodes of Zaicev+1, Fizruk (P.E. teacher) and Interny, but what do you watch? And where can you watch these series online (better with subtitles)? I haven't seen any in Netflix. Btw I liked those that I mentioned- they are good ones, I think.

Netflix just added Maжор (Silver Spoon) at least in the UK. I have been pleased with how much I can understand:) I hope they will add more series. They also added Night Watch a week or so ago. Russian subs are not available though, just english, but it is better than nothing.

There are quıte a few series on you tube from Star Media. Armed love wasn't nearly as bad as it sounds from the title. Or maybe I can just put up with a lot for the sake of the language:~

Some Star Media shows have both English and Russian subtitles (like the last one they uploaded, A Sentence on an Ideal Pair ) , which is great because I can download the episodes from Youtube, combine both subtitles into one file and learn the language in a very effective way. Those shows are all pretty bad, but at least they're not boring, and unfortunately it's very hard to find good shows with dual subtitles.

Кухня and Отель Элеон are really funny comedies (the main actor in Fizruk plays in Кухня).

Кин-дза-дза (Kin dza dza) is very well done. And it's on youtube. I highly recommend it if you like Sci-fi movies.

If you're into older classics, check out Andrei Tarkovsky--one of the greatest directors of all time. His movies are beautiful and timeless.
