Shopping for the holiday season will look a lot different this year for many reasons, but come hell or high water—and for better or worse—Amazon Prime Day was not going to be deterred. There are a more than 83,000 items on sale via the online retailer, which include a ton of apparel; home goods; and, for some reason, lots of bean-bag chairs. (That’s not a joke. There’s even one that’s “spicy lime” colored.)
But among the tens of thousands of items there were a few dozen movies, TV shows, albums, books, games, and comics. If you’d prefer to shop local or direct from certain retailers, The A.V. Club staff has curated a list of their favorite independent retailers where they purchase our pop culture. But if you’re partaking in Amazon Prime Day, here are the items you might find worthwhile.
