The White Ribbon, directed by Michael Haneke, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while The Girls From Ames by Jeffrey Zaslow was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Incredible Human Journey. If you liked videogames you were probably playing BattleForge or BlazBlue: Continuum Shift.
