Black Swan, directed by Darren Aronofsky, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Sidekick. If you liked videogames you were probably playing APB: All Points Bulletin or Body and Brain Connection.
