why do the randomest sub-cultures keep getting to the front page? First Arctic monkeys, then full house, now Buffy?

Its not like the Buffy fandom grew substantially lately or came back from the dead. The show has been continued as a comic for years now.

Speaking of Subcultures how is Avatar still unconfirmed?
