Feeling guilty

Hey guys. I love American movies and tv shows. 

Buy they don't help me learn mandarin. 

But I can't really get into Chinese tv shows or movies. 

I've found a few but not many. 

Any shows that you guys like?


i think 外国人在中国 is great. 

Check it out if you havnt. 

But yeah. I always feel guilty now when watching American stuff..... English stuff....

I don't like watching stuff labeled as 外国人 stuff, it makes me feel weird to be watching people like me.  If you like sitcoms, I can recommend 爱情公寓, it's my favourite, I've been obsessing about the next season.  The reason why I like it is because it's funny and the language used in it isn't too hard, as in it's very daily.  After watching this I feel a lot more comfortable with certain sentence structures that I was afraid to use before.

Another one I just finished watching recently was 男人帮 thanks to Vera's recommendation.  It's another comedy, but the sense of humour is a lot more subtle.

It just kind of depends what type of shows you like watching.
