I saw the link a few days ago, and the channel looked amazing. I was back to check the videos deeply and maybe watch a couple, but the channel has been deleted... So sad, hope I could find them somewhere else...

I love documentaries! The channel may be gone, but if you just search for "L'Ombre d'un doute" videos, plenty show up. :)

Does anyone know where I can find Russian tv serials or movies subtitled in english? Those always seem to really boost my listening comprehension but I've exhausted a lot of the ones on youtube already :?

This character has many similarities to Raymond Chandler in writing style, but the whole thing takes place in 1960s-1980s Florida, among sunburns, vacationing college student on Easter Break, and the other beach and boat scenery. This series has some of the evilest "bad guys" I've ever seen.
It is available in English, and the first book has a good, recent translation into Spanish. There are many other translations into Spanish over the years, but they are a little hard to find (at least for me).
I'm not sure what other languages they may have been translated into.
Wikipedia says there are french translations, so I'll add those to my reading list. Thanks. :-)
