I need a bit of feedback on the (in)efficiency of my gym regimen.

So I am going to the gym about three non-consecutive days a week: two weekdays and one weekend day. Weekdays I have maybe a half-hour, weekends 45 mins to an hour (which is basically the extent of my stamina.)
I know I should be doing squats and deadlifts, but let's put that aside for now (and also until I see a doctor about my knee.) Based on my research on what machines and exercises are least likely to give me some sort of hideous injury, I've narrowed it down to the following.
-Barbell Bench Press
-Lying T-Bar Row
-Chest Fly Machine (locked so I can't overextend on the release)
-Standing Cable Bicep Curl
-Seated Vertical Row Machine
That generally gets me through the half hour. I feel like there's some unnecessary overlap there, but I can't quite tell.
On weekends, I'm adding the following, which takes me to 45-60 mins:
-Captain's Chair Leg Raises and Crunches
-Decline Barbell Bench Press
So does that seem like a decent workout? Any unnecessary overlaps? Am I doing anything that could seriously injure me? Any big gaps standing out (save for leg stuff)?
