The weekend is finally here! Time to sit back and check out the new releases like Dirty Grandpa or The 5th Wave in cinemas. Based on the reviews though, perhaps Netflix and chill doesn’t seem so bad now. Anyway, Legends of Tomorrow premiered earlier this week on The CW and the show is off to a solid start. Heck, just seeing Caity Lotz on the screen is totally worth devoting my time to the show.
