Sparkle, directed by Salim Akil, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while The Fallen Angel by Daniel Silva was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Go Public: A Documentary Film Project. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Doctor Who: Worlds in Time or The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dragonborn.
