Suggestions

I'm starting to see some real improvement in my ability to understand and construct logical responses in German now. Thus, I'm encouraged to watch some movies and/or shows in German (that have English captions). Any suggestions? Danks für deine Hilfe!

Unfortunately this seems to be uncovered area. You can either buy books and have fun reading them or listen to German with no possibility to look up the parts which you could not understand.

I tried once to watch a film with the German audio (dubbed) and subtitles and that didn't work either - the German audio and subtitles just didn't match! They were clearly translated by different translators.
