    The Queen’s Umbrella is a possibility but whether I’ll ever actually watch it, is another matter alltogether. I’ve still got 2 epis of Extraordinary Attorney Woo to watch and I’m struggling to find some sort of intitative to finally tackle those. I’m also quite behind with Good Job and yet to get beyond ep 1 of One Dollar Lawyer, so it’s anyone’s guess what my roster will be at any given time. 😀 I’ve dropped so may of the dramas I’ve tired this year as my interest just seems to completely fizzle out after couple of episodes.

      I can give u an advice
      The only thing is u sud keep with their date of reading
      The only new movie I haven’t watched are
      One dollar lawyer
      You can download it as they are been released so you won’t have problem waiting or downloading all at once
      And u can get a jotter to remind you of where you stopped at each episode,so later you can come back to it if you find any new movie interesting and you don’t want to have problem watching two or more movies altogether
      I hope it helps 🙏🏽👀
