Courageous, directed by Alex Kendrick, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while The Secrets Of The Fbi by Ronald Kessler was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Black Dynamite. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Alien Zombie Megadeath or Armageddon Riders.
