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.

Podcasts: All Things Good and Nerdy, GonnaGeek.com Podcast, The Starling Tribune and WTWD Radio Free Woodbury.

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.

      • Climactic Fight With old Ollie
    • Time Travel: Share your thoughts (Neil then Chris)
      • The crew not understanding how time travel works is the biggest problem with the entire episode.  None of anything that was happening should have mattered!!!!
        • What would have happened if they left Sara, and then the timeline reverted.
      • Ollie!!

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Kevin Smith knows how he would bring Onomatopeia to Arrow  (Date: xx June 2016)
    Onomatopoeia has a very distinct look and quirk in the comics, which might not translate to TV that well. That doesn’t mean Kevin Smith hasn’t thought about how to make it work.

  2. Former WWE superstar Cody Rhodes (Stardust) to appear on Arrow  (Date: 02 July 2016)
    *Confirmed during a panel at Heroes & Villains FanFest in New Jersey Stephen
    * Rhodes added that, “You can probably expect Stephen and I to get into another fight.”
    * No further details about who he’ll play were revealed,
    * He’ll first show up in episode three.

  3. Did Stephen Amell confirm Flashpoint??  (Date: xx June 2016)
    Stephen Amell said “sure” in response to a question about Flashpoint impacting Arrow, adding “you bet” when someone followed up by asking, “majorly?” Needless to say, that’s all pretty vague, but with the internet being what it is, it predictably didn’t take long for his comments to be turned into the actor confirming that the events of The Flash would end up having an affect on Arrow.  Now, Amell has taken to Facebook to make it clear that Arrow will NOT definitely be affected by Flashpoint in a major way, stating: “Actually I sarcastically said “sure”… And then I seriously said, “I have no idea whatsoever”

  4. Diggle Finally Gets a New Helmet  (Date: xx June 2016)
    * fans were not happy with the execution, instantly zeroing in on Spartan’s head attire and its close resemblance to the helmet worn by a certain X-Men villain.
    *David Ramsey thought the design should be a little different as well,
    * new look will be constructed by S.T.A.R. Labs’ Cisco Ramon

  5. Olicity is kinda-back  (Date: 04 July 2016)
    At Heroes & Villains FanFest in New Jersey, Amell shared his thoughts on Olicity: “I was chatting with a couple of fans earlier and they were saying there hasn’t been a lot of positivity and reassuring notions when it comes to Oliver and Felicity’s relationship,” he said. “I think that it’s important to remember that relationships on the show don’t have to be only defined by romance. Oliver and Felicity could have a wonderful, fulfilling, dynamic relationship and not be together, right?”
