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.

EPISODE DC EASTER EGGS:

Season 1 Episode 9 “Left Behind” (Date: 31 Mar 2016)
Article:http://comicbook.com/2016/03/31/dcs-legends-of-tomorrow-things-you-might-have-missed-in-left-beh/

  1. Left Behind: Also the title of an Arrow Episode, also written by Marc Guggenheim
  2. Ra’s al Ghul: Matt Nable returns in the role he OWNED in Arrow.
  3. Talia al Ghul: We got a lot of Nyssa, but this is the first DC TV appearance of Talia
  4. Ray looks like Clark Kent: Glasses, buttoned down suit…
  5. The Game of Life: Oops or from the waverider? Stuck in ‘58, game created in ‘60
  6. Hub City: Hub City, where the team found itself in 1958 and Ray ended up setting up a life with Kendra, is in the comics the home of The Question and other DC superheroes imported from Charlton Comics.
  7. Nanda Parbat
  8. Another Reference to the Vanishing Point.
  9. Shadow Record: Document with the League’s roster is similar to the League of Shadows
  10. That threat Mick makes to Snart — that he’s going to start in the far future and travel back in time over and over again forcing Snart to watch him murder Snart’s sister each day — is something similar to what happened in The Kingdom, Mark Waid’s follow-up to Kingdom Come, in which the villain Gog did that to Superman.
  11. Hawking-out: Similar to Hulking Out?
  12. Ray’s comment about being “back Here”: He was in the same cell in Arrow, but in the future
  13. General cool comment about the ties to Sara Lance and Canary in Arrow

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Arrow Returning to Street-level Crime  (Date: 27 July 2016)
    * Stephen Amell said: (Director) “Bam Bam gets it and gets the theme of the show, and it feels like it’s a street-level crime-fighting show and it’s about saving Star City and cleaning it up, which is what the show is.  I think the best version of the show is when we focus on that.”
    * Wendy Mericle added: “We’re going back to season 1. We’re going to have really badass monsters.  We’re going back to the crime and the city. When we come back to the city, …there is a lot of street crime and the mobsters have really taken over the city
    Link:http://www.comicbookmovie.com/dc_tv/arrow/arrow-returning-to-street-crime-and-mobsters-in-season-5-a143879
  2. Amell on “Olicity” and a New Team v. the Old Team in Season 5  (Date: 27 July 2016)
    “Oliver’s most important relationship in the entire show is his relationship with Star City, and his objective to make it better than what it was and fulfill what his father asked him to do.  So Oliver and Felicity are very much team members at this point. She thinks that there should be a new team at the moment, and Oliver would like the old team to return.

    * First previewed in the Season 5 SDCC Sizzle Reel

    Video:https://youtu.be/LxG7JR4-nCM
  4. Katie Cassidy gets a contract to star across all CW shows  (Date: 23 July 2016)
    * struck a deal with The CW that makes her a series regular across all of the network’s superhero shows.

  5. SDCC: We are definitely getting Mr. Terrific in costume (Date: 26 July 2016)

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

  1. Supergirl: Marc Guggenheim shares details on the Crossover (Date: 28 July 2016)
    Stopping short of calling it a full-on Supergirl crossover, Guggenheim confirmed the Girl of Steel will be stopping by all three of CW’s other DC shows. “It’s an external threat from outside the shows that will involve Supergirl coming over to “The Flash,” then “Arrow” then “Legends of Tomorrow.”
    Link:http://www.comicbookresources.com/article/supergirl-common-thread-flash-arrow-legends-tomorrow-crossover
  2. Supergirl: New Superman costume unveiled and compared (Date: 28 Jul 2016)
    *The design aesthetics are very different. Cavill’s suit is more “alien skin”. Hoechlin’s suit is more of a suit
    * Hoechlin’s costume opts for the red “utility belt” design, pulled from the New 52 Comic book reboot of Superman (more on that later). Cavill’s costume famously skipped over having a pronounced belt or red underwear
    * The logos on the costume are very different: Cavill’s Kryptonian “hope” insignia was made with the same “alien” aesthetic as the rest of his costume, while Hoechlin’s insignia is much more of the classic Dan Jurgens design.
    * The cape clasps are very different: Cavill’s, again, runs seamlessly into his shoulders, like a hair extension, while Hoechlin clearly has clasps to hold his cape in place. Cavill’s cape is a CGI creation; Hoechlin’s is clearly leather (or some sort of similar material).

  3. Flash: Grant Gustin wants Joss Whedon to guest direct Flash (Date: 27 July 2016)
    * Season two saw fan favorite director Kevin Smith take over for an episode.
    * “Yeah actually,” said Gustin, “I met Joss Whedon last night. Yeah, that’d be really cool. He was a really nice guy and he loves the show. He’s seen every episode of the show.”

  4. Flash: SDCC Season 3 Trailer… Flashpoint!  (Date: xx July 2016)
