Global consensus of the week: Gal Gadot (you are probably pronouncing it wrong…yes you are) is kicking butt in Wonder Woman and somewhere on DStv as well. Catch her on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on DStv Now. We promise she makes that ordinary DC Comics (cough) movie worth watching.
There is a lot more you can discover this week, well, other than the meaning of covfefe. Too old? We had to try.
1. Why four grown men share an apartment they can barely afford to live in

4. Why it's not a bad thing to feel things
At first This is Us seems like it's just a show about four different people who share the same birthday only for you to find out that they are all interconnected. Also, who knew that Milo Ventimiglia could grow out of the annoying brooding teen that was Jess Mariano in Gilmore Girls. This one is ‘weepy weeps’ guys, so grab some tissues because it’s not a bad thing to feel things.
