Stay InsideShow Pop Culture Picks – Day 22

Due to social distancing, many of us have found ourselves with more time inside than usual. Many of our schedules have changed, giving us the opportunity to try new things. As fans of pop culture ourselves, Sideshow’s Staff is happy to share a few suggestions to help you fill your newfound time with high quality content.

To help encourage everyone to Stay InsideShow, every day this week we will be recommending one film/series, one comic/book, one board game, and one video game that you can enjoy while you practice safe social distancing. These picks are the best of the best, curated and personally suggested by our very geeky staff.

$chitt’s Creek (Netflix)

Season 1 – 5 currently available with the 6th and final season dropping in mid May. Find out what happens with an out-of-touch with reality rich family loses everything and is plopped into the opposite type of life they were accustomed too. It takes a bit for the show to warm up but once it hits season two and beyond there is so much heart and touching moments moving forward. I’d consider this show appropriate for ages 14+ and up.


Book

American Gods by Neil Gaiman

If you like mythology and the sensation of being slightly confused throughout the entirety of a story, this is for you. Neil Gaiman writes beautifully and this story is rife with emotion and curiosity and interesting tid-bits and language and all around good stuff. PLUS, it’s a tv show!


Board Game

Recommended by Jeff

Hanabi (2-5 players, 25min)

Hanabi- named for the Japanese word for “fireworks”- is a collaborative card matching game where you and your companions place down various patterns to create a colorful show- the only problem is, no one can see which cards they have in their hand! You can only give a limited number of hints before you have to start making moves, so a good memory and strong communication skills are key here.


Video Game

Recommended by Andrew

Outer Wilds

You’re the newest member of Outer Wilds Ventures, a fledgling space program searching for answers in a strange, constantly changing solar system.

Who built the ruins on the moon? What lurks in the heart of Dark Bramble? Why are you trapped in a time loop, and can it be stopped? To solve these mysteries you’ll have to venture into the most dangerous reaches of space.
