For some reason, I understand spoken American English much better than spoken British English. While I have next to no problems watching American movies or serials (well, except when someone speaks with a broad South Carolina accent ), I find watching British movies rather stressful: it is harder for me to understand what is being said. So I decided to obtain some British serials or movies and watch them for practice. I would be happy to get some suggestions.
My requirements are rather simple: it must be entertaining in some way, either funny or intriguing or full of suspense (like a crime story). Sci-fi is fine, too. As long as it is not dull, it is ok. Among the things that I do NOT like are chick-flicks and most soaps. A.L.F. is an example of an US sitcom that I rather enjoyed, especially the first season.
Oh, and, of course, the cast must be mostly British. A British production about adventures of an American in Germany would be no good for my purpose
So, guys and girls, what can you suggest?
