    Do you enjoy TV/Movies in other countries?

    What I mean by other countries is that they are only aired there or if they are available where you are, they are not translated. I know being in America, we get a huge mix here. Most of it is broadcasted in the states but plenty is outside the US and it gives us a nice mix. I do enjoy some British television though that is not aired here.

    I love British comedies. Monty Python and Fawlty Towers are top-tier.

    By "not translated" I'm assuming you mean they just weren't produced in English (or whatever a poster's native tongue is)?

    I have watched a few foreign non-English shows and films. In one case, I committed the sin of watching one with English dubbing. I'd do this very sparingly and only if the dub is very well done, because unlike anime dubbing which I enjoy, it becomes very tricky to sync dialogue with live action. In any case, it was an interesting Portuguese Netflix show called 3% and I just read there's now (literally days ago it seems) a second season available, so thanks for reminding me to check that, lol. From what I remember, it's a thriller about a dystopian society where only the top 3% achievers in a poverty-sticken sector are accepted into an upper class area, or something like that. Recommended.

    I've been meaning to watch the original Danish version of The Killing. I only watched the American adaptation which was brilliant. It could make it into my top ten favourite shows and I've watched a lot of shows, which has led me to wonder whether those who say the Danish original are purists (or those who whine about plot alterations in an adaptation) or if it's actually better. I'll have to find out. My favourite TV show is 24. Though it's a very popular show not many people I talk to seem to care about it. I mention it because an Indian actor from the eighth season actually went on to play the lead character in an Indian adaptation of the show. I've really wanted to see it as I'm such a big 24 fan but haven't found English subtitles for it yet.

    Honestly, I don't really recall any foreign films. But there is Run Lola Run which I think I mentioned in a thread about time loops. Y'see, that's the focus of this German film. Lola has to deliver a package somewhere in a short amount of time in a Groundhog Day-esque time loop and has to keep correcting her errors to make it there in time. It's been a long time since I watched that one.



    (It actually has a small narrative, though this video doesn't emphasise that well... )
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    I loved Run Lola Run. Really fun movie and had an awesome soundtrack.

    I'm into Hong Kong movies, mainly John Woo, Johnnie To and, occasionally, Jackie Chan. Beyond that, I don't watch a whole lot of foreign movies but sometimes something comes out that just rocks like District B13.

    A Chinese anime called Quanzhi Gaoshou (The King's Avatar)


    Something recent that I found out via random postings. Such over top action/fights but also an interesting look at competitive gaming (e-sports) and internet cafe culture.

    Yep I do watched dubbed movies mostly good Chinese and Japanese Martial Art Films. The last one I've watched was an English dubbed Chinese film titled The Grandmaster. There's also one Thai film series that I like watching it's Ongbak.
