Should have also said.. La Casa de Papel..... Even if you're not learning Spanish, watch it.... with subtitles. Brilliant series.

I've just logged into Netflix UK and all three seasons of El Ministerio del Tiempo are now available. I presume the same will be true of Netflix USA.

Not sure how I missed this thread until now! Great stuff.

I'm currently watching Sé quién eres, a crime story set in Barcelona about a famous lawyer who wakes up with amnesia after a car accident and discovers that he's the prime suspect in a murder case. The plot is quite psychological and convoluted, although the language isn't too hard to follow. It was shown on BBC Four, so can be found with English subtitles.

Another series from Spain, available on Netflix, is Paquita Salas: a sitcom about an acting agency. It wasn't my thing at all but some might like it.

Yes, all three seasons just became available here in the US of A. I've added it to my list.

This really sounds like my kind of show. Where can it be seen? I cannot find it in Netflix in the US.

Yes! I forgot two things about this one. First, that it existed and second that I downloaded it from iPlayer and stuck it in a folder somewhere on my PC.

It was a Telecinco production that was also shown on the BBC (as mentioned above). I'm not sure it's available elsewhere (officially). You can buy in on DVD though.

It's geo-blocked from that site - you'll need a VPN to watch if you're not in Spain.

It's working for me in Canada with no VPN. I'm not even using a simple one like Hola.
