It's up to person, I think. As for me, i like "The mentalist". Very interesting serial and the plot keeps up to the end... ::smile1::

Oh, I like it very much, too! Detective is one of my favourite series genres. If someone asked me, I'd also recommend Agatha Christie's Poirot, Bones, Castle, Body of Proof, Waking the Dead. But when I get tired of murders and autopsies, I switch to historical dramas, which I'm also very keen on. BBC shows are my favourites.

As for the full-length films.... i think it's hard for the beginners to watch it at once. The first movie i watched in one breath was "Everybody's fine". Frankly speaking it is very sad movie, but i liked it very much!!! ::smile14:: I advise you to watch this movie. This is a very touching story about the attitude of fathers and children.
And one more movie that i watched in english not so long ago "Lake house". Hard to watch, but also worth it!
And what movies do you like?

My favourite movies are historical ones and those based on classic literature, I like screen adaptations of novels by Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë, Charles Dickens, and others. As for other movies, I was greatly impressed by Interview with the Vampire, Lord of the Rings, Legends of the Fall and by Love Letter (1998) (its plot resembles that of Lake House a little, but the action partly takes place in the 19th century, it's very romantic and touching).
