Tote Board #1


Here it is - the first unofficial SC Tote Board. Now you're probably wondering, "What is a tote board?". Okay, I'll tell you. A tote board is a list of recurring themes throughout a season or more of episodes in a series, with the total number of times that theme appears, and the details of the examples behind the totals. Read on, you'll get the gist of it.
