To improve my listening skills

Hi,

Will watching my favorite TV series(Rick and Morty) in German can help me in improving my listening ability ?

Also, I know the context even if I can't understand anything.

Thanks, Prim

I watch Big Bang Theory in German. I have it with both language options. So, watch a scene in German, not really too sure of what's happening or what they said. Watch again in English. Ahhhh okayyyyy... Then watch in German again. And repeat

Watching familiar movies helps most people. Rick and Morty seems light enough but each person is different when it comes to learning a foreign language. Some people, like me, love subtitles (any known language is better than nothing)... Heavy and/or complex dialogue might be tough though... If you don't make enough progress, you may want to consider lighter dialogue (action based) and/or lower level children cartoons (as in 5-7 year olds level)...
