I recommend watching TV and films you already know but dubbed German with GERMAN subtitles! It’s amazing for building vocabulary and getting a feel for “real” German.
I’m currently watching Tatort and Charité on ARD. I also watched 4 Blocks on Amazon Prime and Der Tatortreiniger. I enjoyed all of these despite not understanding everything that was being said (far from it!) but at no point did it feel like homework!
The ARD and ZDF Mediathek is also available for persons living outside of Germany. I am here in Argentina and I watch a lot of German series and films by mediathek.
So do we in Chile!
My kids used to watch “Die Sendung mit der Maus” und “Wissen macht Ahh!”. They learned a lot about simple daily things!
another suggestion - at least for younger learners - could te “Tschick”. A quite funny road movie about friendship.
When we moved to Mexico my children picked up a lot of Spanish by watching the same movies again and again. That might not work for adults though …
