After Pimsleur, what?

I have been through the Pimsleur Spanish Audio CDs, and I heartily recommend them. They make learning Spanish almost effortless no textbooks, no tables of verb conjugations, periodic review built in to the course, excellent pronunciation but, alas, when you have finished, you still are not fluent.
What I need is a continuation of the Pimsleur approach, an audio course that will include the verb tenses not covered by Pimsleur and continue to increase vocabulary. Basically, I guess I like to listen and repeat, but I don't like to study.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If you are serious about studying Spanish go to:
http://members.cox.net/jackdins/
and download a copy of Vocabulous. It will help you increase your Spanish vocabulary. It runs on Windows 98 and up.
Read Condorito daily at . It also has links to other comics in American Spanish.
If you like Dilbert this page offers it in Spanish. It has excellent translations; it is not easy to translate irony and sarcasm:

This link has Garfield, Baldo, Calvin and Hobbs, Cathy, Foxtrot and several others in Spanish:

Good luck

Do you do the Pimsleur 4 program? I think it has about 8 CD's, and it may have been originally developed for use inside Simon & Schuster. I've heard mixed reviews about that 4th program set, so I've wondered whether it was worth it.
Also, if you get cable, subscribe to the Spanish package and watch at least an hour of programming a day. I know it's cheap-jack Spanish immersion, but at least it's something. Most useful to me have been CNN en español and MTV español. I love to listen to Daniel Viotto, the CNN anchor, even though my comprehension is deficient. Just to hear the sounds of the language is helpful, and it can help you appreciate how jarring an American accent can be. For instance, George Pataki, the governor of New York, appears to be fluent in Spanish, but his accent while speaking it is downright criminal.
