Recommend some English tv series or movies
I want to ask you if you could recommend some tv series (British or American: doesn´t matter, maybe I'd rather American because... I don´t know why but I don´t understand a British sense of humor a little bit :D) or movies which will help me with my English skills...
I have already seen Friends, Gilore Girls, Gossip Girl, HIMYM and Grey´s anatomy (in my language) so I want to try something new in English and at first with English subtitles and later without them...
I have already tried tv series "Cougar town" but I don´t know if it was the right choice... there were many slang´s parts and for example I was searching translation of "you betcha" for a long time :D
But maybe it was because of the subject of this series and so on... there was another problem. I think their pronunciation was quite fast and inarticulate for me - yeah it wasn´t made for foreign watchers (me) but for Americans of course...
So do you have any advice for me?
Sorry for my mistakes but I´m not really good in English.
Thank you in advance for your help.

3) Private Practice
