Role Models, directed by David Wain, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Hot, Flat, And Crowded by Thomas L. Friedman was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Review with Myles Barlow. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bangai-O Spirits or Civilization IV: Colonization.
