Vicky Cristina Barcelona, directed by Woody Allen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while The Bourne Sanction by Eric Van Lustbader was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Mummy Forensics. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Chrysler Classic Racing or Animal Boxing.
