The Secret in Their Eyes, directed by Juan José Campanella, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while The Doomsday Key by James Rollins was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Special Ops Mission. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bit Boy!! or Star Wars: The Clone Wars Republic Heroes.
