    My cousin told me that big bang theory is good to improve your English even if there is a scentific vocabulary. But i've never seen it. Or anyone has seen once upon a time? I think it is wonderful!!!! If only had a power i could do a lot of things

    Hi @Penelope204, I have heard about that before, but haven't tried to watch it. Maybe with the help of this picture it will give us the idea :)

    I came across this BBC documentary about sacred music which might be on a rather obscure subject, but I thought was very interesting all the same (the link appears as a strange blob, but I assume that it will work.)

    @Penelope204 The big bang theory is also one of my favourites. I watched two seasons of it. Yes, it can help you to improve your English if you watch it with subtitles. :)

    Sure, it's okay my friend. Please feel free to share us the story behind Merlin afterwards. :)

    I saw episode 17 of Blindspot last night @Bubbly. It wasn't bad but it wasn't as good as some. They are a bit variable but never a waste of time.

    I have watched one episode of 'Fawlty Towers' yesterday. It is really hilarious especially the way that waiter speaks Italian. @torellip have you ever watched this series?
