Spanish Lesson

My wife and I have been binge watching Bolivar on Netflix, which I highly recommend, by the way. It is a rare intersection of interests. I like historical stuff and, to tell you truth, I know far too little about South American history. She likes anything in Spanish.
I would have preferred to watch it in English, with Spanish subtitles, or at the very least in Spanish, with English subtitles, but no, she wants it in Spanish with Spanish subtitles, to improve her Spanish, which is a bit unfair because her Spanish is better than mine. Nonetheless, between hearing it, and reading the text, following the action (there is a lot of action – sex, birth, death,fights, rape, and at least one hanging, so far), and occasionally stopping to look up a word, or two, or three, we’ve both been able to follow it pretty well and it is a good Spanish lesson.
