The unaware and overwhelmed psych-ward patient/mutant is back to compel us after a break of 2 years in Legion. For anyone who is done with superhero shows, this one is not for you but for those who have reached somewhat of a disciple level for Marvel, Legion is a juicy treat for your eyes and brain. Watch painfully good looking Dan Stevens as David Haller with his sidekick- turned-nemesis Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) realise his superpowers and learns to harness them to fully become what he was always meant to be: a bone-chillingly powerful mutant. Season 2 premiered April 3.

5) The Good Place
Nothing better than an over-the- top comedy to unwind after a long day of reality. The Good Place is a comedy about a woman story of Eleanor Shellstrop (played by Kristen Bell), who wakes up to find she has died and gone to heaven or rather “The Good Place” as it’s called on the show.

Money Matters – Saving Tips for Over-spenders
Do you zero out your accounts each month and go broke until the next paycheck comes in? Do you feel guilty about all those impulse purchases you could’ve done without? Sounds like you’re a chronic over-spender (like me).
While it may not be easy to spot your own overspending habits, the good news is, it’s never too late to curb your overspending. Here are 4 tips on how I started saving up.
Save up and then spend
Living from paycheck to paycheck can be tough especially when you’ve chipped away at your savings already. If you’ve got two bank accounts, the best way to make sure you don’t spend too much on unnecessary stuff is to transfer half your salary to another account and forget about it. Once you get this 50%-rule right, it’s a smooth road ahead.
Pack up some lunch for work
You never realize how much you spend on food till you start packing lunch from home. This gets not only your healthy eating habit on track but also helps save some extra cash every week. You can always treat yourself to a delicious meal on Fridays (TGIF!).
No expensive hangouts
Hanging out with friends doesn’t have to burn a hole in your pocket. As much as we all love meet-ups at swanky coffee places, it’s best to limit those high budget plans to once a month. Alternatively, you can always meet your friends for some ‘Karak chai’ at a dhaaba near you.
Maintain a spreadsheet
If you have diversified streams of income, putting down all your expenses and income in a spreadsheet is the best way to keep a tab on how much you’re spending vs. how much you’ve saved.

Safest places for solo female travelers
If you’re a girl-on-the-go whose heels get itchy every 3 – 6 months for some globe-trotting, you’d know just how difficult it is to plan a trip. Weather, cost, visa, and convenience are some of the things every traveler has to consider in detail before planning a trip. However, one factor that bothers most female travelers is the safety of traveling alone and what places are ‘female-friendly’.
We’ve listed down 5 travel destinations that are safest for girls traveling alone along with a whole lot of fun.
Iceland ranked #1 on the Global Peace Index, a report released by the Institute for Economics and Peace gauging the peacefulness of regions and countries around the world; obviously, it had to be number one on our list too. If you’re a nature’s child, this place has several selfie-perfect attractions such as the Blue Lagoon and Northern Lights.
Also touted as the hub of fashion, food, and glamour, Italy has slowly but surely become the glamour capital of Europe. Walking on the cobbled streets of Italy lauded with culture and heritage gives a sense of empowerment and enlightenment at the same time. Florence, mainly known for its architecture, is an ideal safe place for a solo traveler who also is an undercover history, architecture and culture lover.
If you’re a clean freak with a hint of OCD, Singapore will be your playland minus the mess, obviously. With futuristic buildings, clean, and safe environment, this South East Asian beauty is the perfect place for the girl who looks for art in architecture, loves shopping and never says no to delectable cuisines.
Tim Hortons, Maple syrup, and snowstorms, there are so many reasons Canada pops up on our newsfeed but not many people know that it’s also the safest place for solo female travelers. Experience Europe for less and head to Montreal. With its scenic riverfront Old Port, history museums, an array of restaurants offering scrumptious cuisines, and old cobblestone streets leading to 17th-century buildings, Montreal gives you the European experience on a budget.
Auckland, New Zealand
Also known as the Land of the Kiwis, New Zealand is one of the most visited places by solo travelers. It is extremely safe, has breathtaking views, and so many outdoor activities to keep your itchy toes satisfied.
