LOL, directed by Lisa Azuelos, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Darksiders II or CityVille 2.
