Death Race, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Foreign Body by Robin Cook was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Mummy Forensics. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Barnyard Blast: Swine of the Night or Commando: Steel Disaster.
