Which are your favorites?
Si, El Chapo me gusta también. Es muy popular y tiene mucha acción.
I also like El Ministerio del Tiempo. I mean, it's silly as hell and nothing in it makes any sense, but it's a fun way to learn about Spanish history.
It does not seem to be on Netflix anymore. Does one of you have a link where I can watch it online?
This is great thanks!
I've been watching La Piloto on Netflix it's got 80 episodes, so you won't run out of something to watch for a long time. I turned on the subtitles in Spanish, and between reading and listening, I can understand most of what is being said. Plus the actors/actresses are muy guapo!
Thanks for recommending La Piloto. I now remember hearing about the series being based on an actual female pilot delivering drugs and all her trials and tribulations.
Si, es verdad los actores y actrices son muy guapos.
I finished "La Catedral del Mar" yesterday. I watched most of it without subtitles, but I must admit that while I was able to follow the general storyline, many nuances where probably lost on me.
I watched the first season of Grand Hotel (with Spanish subtitles, because that was very much at the beginning of my Spanish journey and I could not understand a word of what was spoken), but I lost interest in that a little bit, because I had already seen "Secret of the Nile", which is the Egyptian remake of the same story.
At the moment I watch "Siempre Bruja" and "Las Chicas del Cable". I also tried to watch "Élite", but I gave up after one episode, because I did not understand a word of what those kids said.
I also re-watch three of my favourite series dubbed into Spanish: Shadowhunters, "When calls a heart" and Sense8. I find understanding a dubbed series much easier than the ones which are originally in Spanish. I mean, in the long run, I hope I will be able to understand the Spanish originals as well, but for practice purposes, the dubbed ones are great. The voices are much clearer and the dialog is ususally slightly less colloquial and a bit simplified.
Congratulations, on all your progress in Spanish. The more you immerse yourself in the language the more you'll understand.
Empezo miro las chicas del cable antes de emprezo duolingo. Yo mirado con inglés texto pero no puedo entendo nada ellos dicen en español. Cuendo ellos empezar hacen chapteres nuevos yo pruba otra vez con textos españoles. Tambien las personas are muy, muy guapo.
La Casa De Papel and watching La Reina Del Flow now! I love them both. It's a very entertaining/fun way to learn Spanish. I still need English subtitles - hopefully I can switch to Spanish subtitles soon :)
Thanks for this list!
Your welcome, I hope you continue to have a lot of fun exploring Spanish programming.
I've seen all of La casa de papel, now watching Diablero, it's pretty fun!
Congratulations on your Spanish level 25. I also like to take on one series at a time before moving on to the next.
"El reemplazante" (The substitute teacher) is impressive, but it is in too real Chilean Spanish, even native speakers of other varieties (or the same, but different social class) can have trouble. I strongly recommend it for bold people or advanced students. But start with "El Ministerio del Tiempo" or "Juana Inés" :)
My favorite, which is not on your list, but is available the US Netflix is Sin Senos Si Hay Paraiso. The older series Sin Senos No Hay Paraiso is also available. Also enjoyed La Casa de Papel.
Thank you for sharing your recommendations. I've now added them to the list.
I believe all learning is useful. Like a diamond you don't know you have that can come in handy when you least expect it.
I am watching (and loving) La Niña right now. I watch a couple of episodes every day (Spanish audio with Spanish subtitles).
That's great. I've read in many places that hearing both the audio and the text in the target language helps to increase comprehension. I've been doing the same thing for French.
You forgot El Chavo! https://www.netflix.com/title/70205634 It's a very goofy comedy show, without all the drugs, sex, and drama. I love it because it feels less scripted, and in some ways more like real conversations. An important thing about speaking a new language more naturally is picking up on the little noises of hesitation, frustration, and surprise, that are different in each language, and I love hearing these actors do more of that. Plus, the slapstick is just goofy.
Thanks a lot for this comprehensive list! I hope you don't mind me making a few observations and suggestions. You've listed Juana Inés twice: once in its right alphabetical place and a second time before Surviving Escobar. El Tiempo Entre Costuras (The Time in Between) was a one-season show; it ended in 2014. Also, please move it to its right alphabetical place. Luis Miguel: La Serie (Luis Miguel: The Series) was not cancelled; it has been renewed for a second season. This also needs to be put in its right alphabetical order. It would be helpful if all the shows had the English/International title inside parentheses next to the original Spanish title. All in all, a very helpful list! Thanks again! :)
