Extr@
Available Languages: Spanish, French, German, English
Extr@ is essentially a sitcom in the style of  the 90’s American sitcom “Friends” intended for language-learners, using simple language. It’s rather entertaining and easy to understand even if you’re relatively a beginner. The show can also be used with subtitles in case you feel they’re needed

Having watched all languages, I can attest that the German version is the best version
