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.)

Among the tens of thousands of items there were a few dozen movies, TV shows, albums, books, games, and comics that piqued our interest. While The A.V. Club may receive commissions for products purchased via affiliate links, the offerings on this list were selected independently by A.V. Club staffers and chosen because they are products we actually thought you may want to know about.

And if you’d prefer to shop local or direct from certain retailers, we also curated a list of our favorite independent retailers where we purchase our pop culture.

But if you’re partaking in Amazon Prime Day, here are the items we think are the most worthwhile.
