I started watching Firefly when it first came on and got the DVDs the day they came out so i feel kind of stupid not knowing what BDM stands for. I have been a member here for a few months but i haven't been around in about a month (had to move and junk).

thanks

It's not actually in the DVDs. It's a take on Zoe's line from the episode "Safe". When she and Mal show up and save River and Simon, Mal asks "What does that make us?", her response is "Big Damn Heroes, sir!". The cast and crew became our Big Damn Heroes, or BDH. From there, the Big Damn Movie as BDM isn't much of a stretch.

MAL "You only gotta scare him."
JAYNE "Pain is scary..."

You're right, but I think the connection to the movie is even more direct. After Joss told the cast a year ago about the movie plan, Nathan "Cappy" Fillion posted over on the Fox boards, about the DVDs as well as:

A recent dinner with cast members, Joss and the lovely Kai [Joss's wife] confirmed rumours that we will all be big damn movie stars.

Later a fan replied in part:

You already are big damn stars to us, but if the response here is any indication, count on the loyalties within this board to help make it a big damn movie too.

Then when the DVDs came out in December 2003, the term "big damn movie" started being used a lot on the Fox boards, and eventually just "BDM."
