This is something I really have to plan properly and carefully. Scandal (TV) I didn’t even realize it was possible for me to finish four seasons of watching a single TV series. That’s a total of 78 episodes including season five since I have started watching it as well. The reason behind this was watching it at work and at home where I should supposedly asleep.
