Links to Spanish versions of television shows?

I am trying my best to immerse myself in Spanish. I started to the Rock en Español Pandora Station. I even bought some books in Spanish, but I am finding those difficult to read without having to look up a lot of words. I have been trying to watch Destinos Episodes on line. Today I discovered La Dimensión Desconocida and watched one episode and was able to understand most of it. I decided to post a thread where people could link Spanish language shows free on line. This was my starting point. Please share links to Spanish television shows.

If you haven't seen Extr@ en español on youtube, I'd definitely recommend that series. It's only a dozen or so episodes, but it's easy to understand and quite entertaining too. Here's a link to the first episode.

Edit: Changed link - found a better quality video.

¡Muchas Gracias! Yo voy a ver.

Do you happen to have a DVD collection? I found that a few of my favorite movies that I've watched a million times have a Spanish Language option. This is really good watching, because I already know what they're going to say, so even if the Spanish level/speed is beyond my level, I can usually pick up more of it than I would cold. A couple I've watched so far are "Milagro Beanfield war", "Miller's Crossing" and "Benny and Joon".

I will check the DVDs that I own. I know some of my workout videos do. Thanks!

Wow, as ridiculous as it is I have actually never thought of this before! I've been looking for some online series for a long time while I can just change options on dvds... Seems like there's some truth to the saying 'the simplest options are the hardest to find'. Here, have some lingots from me, for making my day :)

Depends on what you're interested in. I use http://www.rtve.es/television/series-tve/ Maybe you'll find it useful too.

If you enjoy watching cartoons, then there are a couple of websites that have the Simpsons and South Park available in Spanish.

youtube es muy practico para que busques canciones con subtitulos, algunas lecciones, yo te aconsejo que busques temas de tu interes, por ejemplo a mi me gusta mucho la historia y busco series de : the hisroty channel, national geographic ect.... de esa forma podras entrenar tu oido para los sonidos en español

Personally, I watched:

Mi vida loca (http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/spanish/mividaloca/): Interactive story. My favourite show so far, but I already finished it.

Destinos (http://learner.org/series/destinos/): Telenova. A bit long-winded, but good and covers dialects from different Spanish countries. Also comes with optional exercises.

Extr@: Sitcom. Mildly enjoyable, but at least I understand it.

When I got some time, I'll try the one you mentioned in your OP. Maybe old shows are a good starting point as back in the days, actors used to enunciate more. Children shows might be good as well but I prefer them to be not too childish nor dubbed from another language.

Edit: I watched the video in the OP and it seems to be a dubbed episode of the Twilight Zone.
