It was, all in all, another outstanding year on Pajiba. Traffic was up 48 percent, year over year. There were 3,402 posts on the site; 336 new film reviews; 257 book reviews (thanks Cannonballers!); 174 television reviews; 180 Seriously Random Lists; and 63 Guides. Oh, and thanks to our fantastic readership, there were also over 150,000 comments left on Pajiba in 2009. In nearly every regard, it was the site's best year in its five-and-a-half year history. Thank you all.
Here's a brief rundown of the highlights -- the 35 Most Popular Posts of 2009. And if you're wondering why we occasionally post something frivolous, I think some of the year's most popular posts are telling. Also, for a readership that considers itself intellectual, there's an awful lot of evidence here pointing toward more deviant inclinations.
