New goal: learn French by watching French-subtitled Battlestar Gallatica episodes from usenet.

Do you mean you get them with French subtitles on purpose for that, or you didn't find any others? The BSG episodes from usenet I have are French-free :)

I accidentally got a few with French subtitles. But then it turned out to be so fun, I think I'll search for them in the future!

Everything you need to know about French can be learned by reading ah_putain.

With a community name like that, I wonder about the 'Everything you need to know' bit ;-)

It's always useful to know how you should say that you're going to attack someone in a galactic way, but then in French ;)

I do this with my Babylon 5 DVDs, but in Spanish. If I ever need to accuse a Spanish-speaking ambassador of something particularly ridiculous, I am ready!

I once learned the syntactic complexities of swearing in Spanish by watching Swingers with the English audio but Spanish subtitles. Anything is possible!

Re: footoo

I have that DVD, it's been awhile since I saw it, I like Spanish, I like swearing... I think you just gave me an evening activity!
