1) The best televised sci-fi series ever
2) The little space western that was
3) A class of transport vessel that Captain Mal has retrofitted a wee bit
4) A program that, like its namesake, flared out in the darkness for too short a time only to be squashed by forces that care nothing for beauty

Firefly was a great Sci-Fi TV show which lasted about 1 season before the goons at FOX saw that it was good and killed it. Apparently, they showed all the episodes in the wrong order at a crap time. Firefly was described as a 'western in space' (which was a bit misleading) and was created Joss Whedon, the creator of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Apparently there's a DVD coming out with all the episodes on, hurray.
"Firefly was a unique show which the bastards at FOX decided was too good just like Futurama and Family Guy and just had to get rid of it. Bastards."

1. An insect.

2. A tv space-western-comedy-drama created by Joss Whedon, of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame, and hosted by FOX. It was aired in the wrong order and thus dreadfully passed over. After one season it was canceled. All episodes are currently out on DVD (or Kazaa/Bittorrent....) and due to a dedicated fanbase a movie is scheduled for 2005
1. Look mommy, a firefly!

2. "Are you gonna kill me?"
"What? (What) kind of crappy planet is that? Kill you?"
"In the maidens home I heard storys of men who weren't pleased with their bri-"
"Well I ain't them! And don't you ever stand for that sorta thing. (If) someone ever tries to kill you, you try to kill them right back."

A series that was too appropriately named; it shined brightly and briefly.
Geek 1: Firefly is amazing. It's got an excellant storyline, interesting characters and good action... too bad it got taken off.

Geek 2: I know.

(Queer terminology, noun) A term used to describe a woman (inclusive) who comes out as Queer while in a hetero-facing long-term partnership/marriage. Symbolic of spending a lot of life “underground”, going through a metamorphosis, and then emerging as the truest and most authentic self that glows in the dark and brings joy to others. Alternative to “late blooming lesbian”/“late bloomer”/“late in life lesbian,” but intended to be more inclusive of gender identities/expressions and sexuality representations.
“...Oh yeah, she’s a firefly, she left her marriage a few years ago and came out. Now she’s living her big Queer life and is happier than ever!”
