How to watch ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ season 5

Sure, Marvel is putting out more movies than anyone can watch these days, but DC rules the boob tube. Legends of Tomorrow is like watching an Avengers movie every week, without the $12 admission or over-priced popcorn.

As Legends of Tomorrow enters its fifth season, the stakes are getting higher, and the action is–dare I say it–timeless.
