28 fantastic words and phrases from sci-fi and fantasy. Guess which Whedonesque word makes the cut?

I expected "shiny." I enjoyed this, but wondered why some of the photos didn't match up.
Yeah, "shiny" would have been my pick as well. I suppose they didn't choose it because it was already a commonly used word before Firefly (in a different context).
I'm surprised that this list includes "mudblood" given it's connotations within the Harry Potter series.
Given the distribution, it should actually be called "25 cool words from Star Trek, LoTR, HP, HHGttG, and GoT, with another couple from actual science fiction thrown in". :-)
