“America’s top critics are hailing Bloody Sunday as the most celebrated film of the year.”
“24, the season’s most talked-about new series.”
I hail it, you hail it, and it becomes the most celebrated film of the year. I talk about it, you talk about it, et voila! the season’s most talked-about new series. I hate to break up this party, but maybe, just maybe, some people might prefer to know if these things are good. Maybe I’m imagining things, but this sort of accidental narcissism seems new to me.
