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.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Chris ARROW SENDS OLIVER BACK TO RUSSIA IN ‘BRATVA’ (Date: 21 Jan 2017)
    he Feb. 8 episode of “Arrow” will see Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) head back to Russia to meet Anatoly Knyazev (David Nykl). Queen has frequently used his Bratva connections to acquire information otherwise unavailable. There’s a good chance this episode, titled “Bratva,” will delve into those very mafia connections.“Bratva” will also address Quentin Lance’s (Paul Blackthorne) drug addiction and subsequent stint in rehab. Having just returned from rehab, Lance must come to terms with his past when reporter Susan Williams (Carly Pope) requests an interview regarding his drug habit. Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) must step in to make sure things stay on track.

  2. Chris ARROW’S TALIA AL GHUL WON’T BE A NYSSA KNOCKOFF (Date: 20 Jan 2017)
    “She’s definitely her own person; she’s not a Nyssa clone, by any stretch,” Guggenheim explained. “You can definitely sense a familial resemblance. Having Ra’s al Ghul as your dad, it’s likely to forge a very specific kind of person. They’re close enough and different enough that I would love, at some point, to do a story with Nyssa and Talia. We’ll also be dealing very directly with the fairly obvious question, which is: Wait a second, when Oliver met Ra’s al Ghul, why didn’t he say, ‘Hey, wait a minute, I think I met your daughter back in Russia!’” he added.Talia will arrive in “Second Chances,” the “Arrow” episode airing February 1, though it seems as though she’ll only appear in the flashbacks in this particular episode.

  3. Arrow: First Look at Julia Harkavy as Possible [SPOILER] (Date: 25 Jan 2017)
    Tina Boland, played by The Walking Dead’s Julia Harkavy, was revealed to have a sonic scream, which she used to take down misogynistic bikers at a Hub City bar. And in the promo for next week’s episode, titled ‘Second Chances’, it seems that the team tries to recruit Tina to become the new Black Canary. Whether or not Tina is convinced to become a vigilante – particularly Black Canary – is yet to be seen. While executive producer Marc Guggenheim teased that the events at the end of ‘Who Are You?’ “[lay] a very specific seed, with a very specific game plan on our part that we hope to see come to fruition.”

  4. Neil Arrow EP Marc Guggenheim On Making Curtis More Terrific, Turning Artemis Evil (Date: 25 Jan 2017)
    Marc Guggenheim told Comicbook.com “If you’ve been watching the first nine episodes, he [Curtis] does have a tendency to get his ass kicked, as we kind of promised. As far as I’m concerned, turning Curtis Holt into a superhero is probably the biggest turn we’ve ever done on the show. Even more so than turning Laurel into the Black Canary. To my way of thinking, the only way you really earn that is if you show how difficult it is, and that means that Curtis ends up getting his ass kicked quite a bit. I think in episode 10, the mid-season premiere, he kind of hits bottom as far as his self-esteem is concerned, especially in light of the ultimatum that Paul gave him. Starting with episode 10 is his turn, I think, really more towards the Mr. Terrific we know from the comics.”

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

  1. LEGENDS OF TOMORROW MUST PROTECT GEORGE WASHINGTON IN NEW SYNOPSIS (Date: 21 Jan 2017)
    A revolution is headed to “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.” In “Turncoat,” the episode airing February 7, the team will head back to the year 1776 and find themselves embroiled in the Revolutionary War — and the aberration that brings them to that time will lead them directly to George Washington, the first president of the United States of America. The synopsis does include an important piece of information: the Waverider has been grounded. According to the synopsis, the Waverider is “incapacitated,” which likely means the Legends are stuck in whichever time they’ve landed in.

  2. THE FLASH TO INTRODUCE LIFE-DRAINING META-HUMAN IN ‘UNTOUCHABLE’ (Date: 20 Jan 2017)
    Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) will go up against a meta-human who can kill with just a touch in the February 7 episode of the CW’s “The Flash.” Matthew Kevin Anderson will guest star as Clive Yorkin, a meta-human serial killer who claims his victims by making them decompose at an accelerated rate. Fans of the “The Flash” comic book series will know stakes are high when Clive Yorkin is around. In the comics, Yorkin is a career criminal responsible for everything from robbery to murder. While imprisoned in solitary confinement, Yorkin is experimented on, causing the pleasure and pain receptors in his brain to be effectively reversed, and allowing him to drain the life essence from a person through touch.

  3. Neil SUPERGIRL: WHITE MARTIANS ATTACK IN NEW EPISODE SYNOPSIS (Date: 20 Jan 2017)
    Try as she might, M’gann M’orzz can’t outrun her past. According to a new synopsis for “The Martian Chronicles,” the “Supergirl” episode that airs on February 6, the White Martians will track her down in order to try her as a traitor to Mars. However, they’ll have to get through Supergirl and Martian Manhunter first. Unlike her peers, M’gann showed remorse over the actions her people had taken against the Green Martians. As such, she escaped to Earth and hid out in Central City, acting as a bartender at Maggie Sawyer’s favorite dive bar. This way, she remained undiscovered — that is, until now.

  4. Chris FIRST DETAILS OF FLASH/SUPERGIRL MUSICAL EPISODE REVEALED (Date: 20 Jan 2017)
    The musical episode is titled “Duet,” and will take place on the March 21 edition of “The Flash,” with a lead-in on the March 20 episode of “Supergirl,” similar to how last fall’s four-show crossover between The CW’s DC Comics-based shows kicked off with a short lead-in scene on “Supergirl.” This falls roughly a year after the first TV meeting between “The Flash” and “Supergirl,” which happened on the “Worlds Finest” episode of “Supergirl” in March 2016. “Duet” will be directed by Arrowverse veteran Dermott Downs, who has helmed multiple episodes of “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Arrow” and “Legends of Tomorrow.” The episode will include musical numbers from “The Flash” stars Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin and Carlos Valdes; “Supergirl” stars Melissa Benoist and Jeremy Jordan; and “Legends of Tomorrow” co-star Victor Garber and “Arrow” regular John Barrowman, showing that the episode will also include Arrowverse vets known for their singing chops, even if they aren’t part of the “Supergirl” and “Flash” casts.

  5. Neil FLASH / SUPERGIRL MUSICAL CASTS GLEE’S DARREN CRISS AS MUSIC MEISTER (Date: 23 Jan 2017)

  6. SUPERGIRL STAR SENDS A MESSAGE TO TRUMP AT MARCH ON WASHINGTON (Date: 21 Jan 2017)
    Thousands of demonstrators descended today on Washington, D.C., for the Women’s March on Washington, just one day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump.Among the crowd in the nation’s capital, which organizers estimate could grow to as high as 500,000, is none other than “Supergirl” star Melissa Benoist, whose handmade sign sends a pointed message to the new president while giving a nod to her role as the Girl of Steel. The message of course refers refers to the widely publicized and condemned audio recording from Trump’s 2005 appearance on “Access Hollywood,” in which the former reality-TV star boasted about kissing women and grabbing their genitals.

  7. THE FLASH’S GYPSY MAY HAVE POWERS SIMILAR TO CISCO’S (Date: 21 Jan 2017)
    When Gypsy arrives on “The Flash,” Cisco “Vibe” Ramon may just learn a thing or two about the way his own powers work. Executive producer Aaron Helbing said, “Gypsy is a very formidable adversary. He never realized the extent of his powers, and because of seeing Gypsy, he’s going to become more and more in tune with his powers and what he can do, whether it’s crossing dimensions or opening breaches much faster and quicker. He’s going to be building confidence, and that’ll definitely play into the rest of the season of helping Barry and the team stop Savitar from killing Iris.”

  8. Neil Supergirl plans Maggie/Alex-centric Valentine’s Day episode (Date: 24 Jan 2017)

Further details on the hour, like who else might be spending the holiday together, are being kept under wraps, but the Valentine’s Day episode will air on Feb. 13.

  10. Supergirl Just Made A Big Legion of Super-Heroes Nod and Basically Told Us What’s Up With Mon-El (Date: 23 Jan 2017)
    Will Supergirl bring the Legion of Super-Heroes into the series? It certainly seems like it. Hell, even director Kevin Smith, who helmed tonight’s episode of The CW’s hit sophomore series, thinks so. Got Smith has got good reason to believe it: During the course of the episode, at one point a frustrated Mon-El calls out “grife!” That’s basically “Damn it!” In Legion-speak. The 31st Century team naturally have some slang that’s particular to them…although it could turn out that’s just a common exclamation in Interlac within the TV universe of Supergirl. That impression was rooted, in part, in the fact that fans have already seen evidence that the Legion not only exists in the world of Supergirl, but has a relationship with Superman. In the season 1 episode “Fortress,” Supergirl headed to Superman’s Fortress of Solitude for the first time and one of the first things the audience saw was a Legion of Super-Heroes flight ring mounted on a crystal dais inside. Lest you think that the “grife” was a clear indicator that Mon-El’s long-teased secret is just that he knows of the Legion, that’s probably not the case. When a Maaldorian was shooting at him, a Dominator stopped the shot, saying that Mon-El was to be spared. He then gave Mon-El a deep bow.
