28640: Why does Joss Whedon always kill the characters we love?

As posted last year.
This and other articles doing the rounds (on Zap2it, io9 etc) are actually PopMatters essays from last year published in a book to tie with Joss' current high profile.

28286: Is "Cabin" a horror movie?

Added to the entry below. It's going to be a busy few days and similar entries will get merged so the front page doesn't totally changed every few hours.

28620: Seth Green's Robot Chicken DC Comics Special will feature Seth, Nathan Fillion and Neil Patrick Harris!

Already mentioned on the front page:

28617: Female reviewer gets internet backlash after posting a negative review for The Avengers on Rottentomatoes.

While I think this is an important discussion to have I'm not convinced this site is the venue for it.

28622: Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth to appear on 'The View'.

I expect there will be several appearances and noting them here on the day of would be more useful.

28588: Down In Front reviews The Cabin In The Woods.

We're covering other people's responses to the film less at this point and focusing on our own reactions in a series of spoilertastic threads (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3). People are welcome to link to interesting reactions on other sites from the comments there.

28589: Whedon Snuck One of His Whedonverse Actors in the Anvengers.

It's not news. Everybody already knows Bad Horse is the secret bad guy. Worst kept secret casting EVER.

Or actually there's a thread about this already here!

28587:TV Guide's Matt Roush sees The Cabin in the Woods.

It's nice that he liked it but it gets a peripheral mention. We've had a lot of Cabin review posts already recently and this doesn't really add anything new.

28586: Tom Hiddleston Defends Comic Book Movies.

Already posted here:

28584: More casting announced for Julie Benz's "Defiance"

Casting news only gets a front page mention if it's in regards to a specific Whedonverse actor getting a role.

28582: Favorite long-running TV show. Buffy's in second place.

No more links from TV Breakroom please. It's starting to turn into spam.

28578: Empire reviews The Avengers.

Linked to on the 20th.

28575: Joss Whedon special musical guest on This American Life.

This is actually from three years ago and was covered in several posts at the time.

28520: Fury and Siri.

The ad isn't related to The Avengers. Also, threads are not the place to discuss site moderation. You're welcome to email us if you have thoughts about that.

28508: A Buffy Fan Fiction Scholar becomes a noted expert on the "Mommy Porn" genre.

It's a interesting article but it would need to have some more Whedonverse references to make it relevant for the front page. As at the minute, it's just an article about "mommy porn".

28506: The Cabin in the Woods won't change the horror game

Added to an existing review thread already on the front page.

28498: Adam Baldwin Previews His Castle Visit (Firefly Shout-Outs Included), Reflects on Chuck Finale.

Combined with the other interview on the same topic a couple of posts down.

28496: Red Letter Media reviews The Cabin in the Woods.

As said before, we're kinda done for reviews for a few days. At the minute we're focussing on what people actually think of the movie in our discussion threads.

28439: Cabin in the Woods is now Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes!

It was certified fresh the other day

28431: The wild and wacky wonderful World of Whedon.

In these news-heavy times a blog post that doesn't really add anything new to ongoing discussions is just not substantial enough to stay.

28434: A Film’s Superheroes Include the Director.

Since the front page is pretty busy with interviews at the moment I combined the two New York Times pieces into a single post.
