    The episode in full and half of the episode.

    "I couldn't watch the episode in full. I watched only half of the episode of that series."

    Please check.

    Re: The episode in full and half of the episode.

    Are you talking about one episode, the whole series or both?

    One episode but I would like to know about both "the series and the whole episode".

    Re: The episode in full and half of the episode.

    A series comprises multiple episodes. Let's take, for example, a series called "Battle Creek". There were only six episodes in that series (this is also called a "season"). Each episode lasts one hour.

    If you watched three episodes, then you watched half the series.
    If you watched one episode all the way through, then you watched one episode.
    If you watched 30 minutes of just one episode, then you watched only half an episode.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Can we say "half of the episode" as well?

    You can include "of" if you want but (in BrE, at least) it's optional.
