Chris Ferrell is a long time fan of a variety of so called nerdy things. Growing up he was introduced to Star War, Star Trek, and Babylon 5 by his father. That grew into a love of just about all Sci Fi and fantasy. Add in his fanboy nature when it comes to comics and Chris probably has too many things he's interested in.

Nowadays Chris espouses his love for all things good and nerdy in both podcast and blogging forms. Chris is a staff writer at Gonna Geek. In addition to that he is the co-host of a bunch of podcasts. Basically, if you want to hear someone ramble about nerdy things, Chris can do it.

SP as he is known to his close associates has dedicated his life to working within the system to bring geeky humor and science fiction points of view to the mindless minions in charge of providing the freedoms, security and infrastructure to our lives. Given the opportunity, SP would gladly slip through the Stargate to begin colonizing a new planet and living the Little House On The Prairie life or suit up to mine the solar system's asteroids for precious metals, gems and hidden signs of ancient advanced societies. SP has a lifelong fascination with geeky shows, advanced technologies, revolutionary science and apocalyptic tales.

Starling Tribune – Special Edition – 2016 Batman V Superman Film (A CW Network Arrow Television Show Fan Podcast)

 

The Official Arrow Podcast of the Gonna Geek Network

 

This year that film that many comic fans have been waiting their entire lives for released: Batman V Superman. The Reporters viewed the film or read extensively about the controversial film and in this off week from Arrow, The Reporters Stargate Pioneer, Chris, Guest Ferris and Guest Michelle Ealey take the time to run down their thoughts about the film.

+ Foreign:         $521,100,000       62.5%

= Worldwide:     $833,880,395

 

All four Reporters run down their take on the film and other than a few gems no one was head over heals for the movie. Stargate Pioneer vows never to watch another Zack Synder movie in the theater again. Michelle looks forward to Wonder Woman. Ferris loved the Batman action. All of the reporters agreed that Superman was gravely a mis-understood character. Lex Luther was not a great portrayal. Alfred was one of the few gems while Doomsday was mostly “Meh.”  Chris, since he has not seen the film, had a unique position to cover only how the media covered the film. Did the movie succeed in setting up future DC films? Which universe is more worth it to the viewer right now? DC television or DC films?

Green Arrow Rebirth Preorders go Live!!!  (Date: 15 Apr 2016)

June 1, 2016 – As Oliver struggles with how he can fight “the man” when his huge fortune makes him the man, he and Black Canary uncover a deadly new threat to Seattle that cuts the Archer to the bone.

 

THEY SAID IT: “My touchstones are [former GA writers] Dennis O’Neil and Mike Grell, while trying to make the series my own,” says writer Benjamin Percy. “Green Arrow will be a politically and culturally relevant series. Expect stories that aim a broadhead into the zeitgeist, that are ripped from the headlines.”
