I have to admit that I have been learning English by watching movies and TV dramas.

The problem, though, is that some of those lines could be quite far removed from what you would say in everyday life.

Like the popular Bing Bang Theory and Prison Break here in China, apart from gaining some knowlege in science and prison life, language wise, I don't have much to acquire.

Perhaps it it the case in other English-speaking countries. But as to America, you have to remember one thing: movies and soap operas are in every nook and cranny of the American discourse and narrative. There are constant references to movies in your daily life, and if you haven't watched them, you are lost.
