Hi, Ted, - I recognize my limitations but, I know something about Netflix offerings with various audio and subtitle tracks because I watch them a lot. I learn more from studying other resources and try to enjoy the films and tv series while I wait for some magic to occur. I will continue doing so.

  1. French Audio and subtitles - at the bottom of many screens there is a link you click on that says audio and subtitles. You click on that and then select your choice of language for these choices. There are tons of choices. I am currently enjoying Heartland in French with less than great understanding. It helps that I've watched it in English before..

  2. The shows I've seen do not match subtitles with audio. Well, in a way the often partially do. There are lots of times when the speaker will say something like anxious and the subtitle will have a synonym like nervous.

  3. I understand a lot more of the languages I have a long time interest in, German and Spanish. My newer challenges French and Italian, I watch to have that experience as part of my all around direct contact experience.. I'm guessing that it will help. I don't know of Netflix shows with simple dialog.

I hope my point of view is helpful and that others give you a more useful answer to the questions.
Regards, Ken

Log onto the Netflix website on a web browser. Go to the very bottom. Click on "Audio & Subtitles", and you'll be able to see everything with French audio or subtitles. Make sure you click "A-Z" or else you'll get a shorter list of just what they think you like. Unfortunately, you won't be able to see subtitles & audio both listed on the same screen. In the US, most of what's labelled "Netflix original" will have both audio & subtitles available in French & Spanish.

Unfortunately, I haven't come across anything that has the audio & subtitles match. Even the French show I watched had subtitles that often differed from the audio.

If you want a simple story line, you might pick an animated show or a sitcom. Remember, you can always rewind a confusing scene and re-watch it with English subtitles to make sure you understand what's going on.

I enjoyed watching "the Good Place" in French on Netflix. Of course, I had already watched the season in English, so I was never lost. I still rewound & went back over sections with English subtitles to try and understand the French.

I'm a new language learner. The show that I love is "Call My Agent" << Dix Pour Cent>> The first season is brilliant. Season two was good but the first season set the bar very high.

I also have spent a long time trying to find Netflix choice with matching subtitles. The list on this reddit thread is a good start: https://www.reddit.com/r/languagelearning/comments/69j2u2/are_there_any_shows_on_netflix_us_where_the/

Also, these are ones I have watched/have on my "to watch" list:

Divines, Colossal, Ella Enchanted, Chefs Table: France, Call My Agent, Les Bleus, Marseille, The African Doctor, They are Everywhere, Violette, Diego Star, Zootopia, Asterix and Obiliex, Trouver Doris, The Climb, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men tell no tales, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (A lot of the new Marvel movies on Netflix have "good" subtitles)

(P.S. I have Canadian netflix)

Bon Cop, Bad Cop and Bon Cop, Bad Cop 2 are both on Netflix and have dialogue split between English and French. On cop is from Ontario and one Quebec. Not a bad movie.
