    South park

    Here is an article outlining the series. I remember it being released in 2001, but not sure if its still running, or if you can buy it on DVD/VCD. Let me know if you find it, as I would be interested in seeing it too.

    i currently use Pimsleur which i like more than all the podcasts i have found.

    I have 90 lessons (30 mins each) of mandarin.

    i also have 30 lessons for Cantonese...which i havent started yet.

    and i just got back from China...picked me up some japanese cartoon called "Hanada Shonen-Shi"

    looks cute...we will see how far i get...lol

    Hi!

    I've come across clips from a series called "Travel in China" a couple of times, which you may find useful, if dry. It's more of a lesson format, rather than a TV show so it might not be what you're looking for - typically it starts by screening a scene and then goes through and explains some of the phrases, before recapping and showing the scene again.

    You can find more about it here:

    PS Look forward to seeing your reviews on Southpark in Mandarin if you get hold of them!
