Stay InsideShow Pop Culture Picks – Day 8

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.

Killing Eve (HULU)

Following Eve, a bored and disenchanted MI5 agent as her professional curiosity turns into a dangerous obsession with the charming (and unhinged) assassin Villanelle.

A stellar cast, some top-notch writing, and some genuine edge-of-your-seat spy thriller moments in this funny, creepy, and cool series.


Book

Alchemists

Have you ever wanted to feel like a real actual wizard with real actual magic and alchemy? This game is exactly that. There’s even an app that randomizes the game every single time!

“Mandrake root and scorpion tail; spongy mushroom and warty toad — these are the foundations of the alchemist’s livelihood, science, and art.

But what arcane secrets do these strange ingredients hide? Now it is time to find out. Mix them into potions and drink them to determine their effects — or play it safe and test the concoction on a helpful assistant! Gain riches selling potions to wandering adventurers and invest these riches in powerful artifacts. As your knowledge grows, so will your reputation, as you publish your theories for all to see. Knowledge, wealth, and fame can all be found in the murky depths of the alchemist’s cauldron.”
