James Poniewozik has an interesting column in Time this week about how more American television viewers are turning into subtitled shows, whether they are imports like “The Returned,” or domestic products like FX’s adaptation of “The Bridge.” As a critic who has to keep up with a great many kinds of media, these sorts of shows have been a challenge for me because I tend to watch screeners while doing something else. I can’t watch subtitled shows casually; I have to carve out time for them. Thus, my question of the day: Which subtitled shows are you watching and under which circumstances?
