Are there any recommendations for British or American dramas to learn English? 有什么英剧或美剧的推荐吗？

1. Doctor Who
This classic British show has a tremendous cult following, so it may be time to see what all the fuss is about. The series centers on The Doctor, a scientist from a faraway planet who travels through space and time. They have a fondness for Earth, so they often make trips to our planet to save it or to enlist help for their space endeavors.
Sherlock is one of the British shows that managed to gain an impressive international following thanks to its clever storylines and endearing heroes. The series is a modern reimagining of the classic Arthur Conan Doyle mysteries, but this time we follow the brilliant detective in present-day London as he solves cases with the help of his flatmate and trusted advisor, Watson.
The series only has three episodes per season, but they’re the length of a movie, so they should keep you busy for at least a couple of weeks. Entertaining and perfectly cast, Sherlock is the perfect binge for viewers in need of some stimulating mysteries.
3. Happy Valley
There are a lot of British shows out there focusing on law enforcement officials, whether policemen or eccentric detectives, but Happy Valley is one of the most compelling entries on our list. The series follows a police sergeant as she investigates cases in a small West Yorkshire town while also struggling to cope with her personal demons. In Season 1, a kidnapping goes terribly wrong, which forces our heroine to go to dangerous lengths to save the life of a young woman.
Besides terrific writing, the series wins bonus points for telling the story of a middle-aged female law enforcement official instead of going the predictable route of featuring a male lead. Sarah Lancashire’s acting chops are impressive, to say the least.

有很多英国节目都关注执法人员，无论是警察还是古怪的侦探，但欢乐谷是我们名单上最引人注目的条目之一。该系列讲述了一名警官在西约克郡一个小镇调查案件的故事，同时也在努力应对她的个人恶魔。在第 1 季中，绑架发生了严重的错误，这迫使我们的女主角不惜一切代价挽救一名年轻女子的生命。
除了出色的写作之外，该系列还因讲述了一位中年女性执法官员的故事而不是走男性主角的可预测路线而获得加分。至少可以说，莎拉·兰开夏 (Sarah Lancashire) 的演技令人印象深刻。

1. The Friends series has a relaxed and happy rhythm, many daily expressions and a good plot.
2. Desperate housewife, moderate speaking speed, suitable for listening practice and imitation.
3. House of Cards, there are a lot of political vocabulary in the lines, suitable for listening practice, wonderful story.
4. The Big Bang Theory, as a sitcom, has very colloquial dialogues, which is more suitable for people to listen to and practice colloquial English pronunciation.

Friends is one of my favorite American TV series. One of its characteristics is that the pronunciation of the characters in the show is very consistent with the normal American pronunciation. It is recommended for new English students to learn as much as possible.
