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.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Arrow: Stephen Amell Teases Prometheus’ Savage End Game (Date: 30 April 2017)
    Arrow star Stephen Amell spoke to ComicBook.com reader Michael Leslie at Planet Comicon Kansas City where he revealed that Chase’s violent tendencies are only going to get worse for Team Arrow as it barrels toward its fifth season finale, while praising the performance of actor Josh Segarra. Amell talked about how Prometheus has been a great villain for Green Arrow and his allies, calling Segarra “almost scary good.” When Leslie noted just how savage Chase has been revealed to be, Amell only offered this tease for the remaining episodes:“Just you wait.”

  2. Stephen: Spoiler Room: Scoop on Supernatural, Handmaid’s Tale, OUAT, and more (Date: 28 April 2017)
    Anything on the Arrow finale? — We know Oliver’s going to be heading back to the island — after all, that’s where Slade has been imprisoned, but he definitely won’t be alone. “One of the things that will surprise us is why he goes and the amount of people who will be there,” Stephen Amell says. “This whole year has been built around Oliver returning on a team, but what happens when Oliver’s team isn’t there for him and he still needs a team?”

  3. Dark Phoenix Could Be Searching for a Younger Version of an X-Men Mainstay (Morning Spoilers) (Date: 01 May 2017)
    Arrow – John Barrowman has revealed he will not be a part of the Arrowverse next season. Told to audience at Planet Comic Con.

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

  1. The Flash: Get the scoop on Killer Frost showdown (Date: 01 May 2017)
    With Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) on death’s door, Team Flash was recently forced to unleash her villainous alter ego, Killer Frost, thus turning their former ally into an icy foe, hell-bent on making them all pay. “Obviously her meta powers have severely messed with her mind, so it’s not like Barry Allen, who is still Barry Allen even though he got super speed,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg explains. “Her brain chemistry has been severely altered.” However, there may also be no quick fix to wait ails Caitlin, meaning this storyline could draw into next season. “For me personally as an actor, it’s been fun to play Killer Frost and I hope that it lasts a little while and we don’t necessarily tie it up in a bow right away,” Panabaker says. “I’m enjoying getting to play her.” “Obviously Danielle Panabaker is not going anywhere,” Kreisberg adds. “How and if she becomes Caitlin Snow again, or she remains Killer Frost or a version of Killer Frost, into season 4, you’re going to have to tune in.”

  2. SUPERGIRL EP TALKS THE RETURN OF SUPERMAN… AND THE COMING OF ZOD (Date: 01 May 2017)
    “Supergirl” EP Andrew Kreisberg recently spoke with CBR about Rhea’s endgame, Supergirl’s moral dilemma, the return of Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman to the show, and the arrival of Mark Gibbons as General Zod. “We have amazing guest stars in the finale. We are bringing back people we’ve had all season. We have Calista Flockhart coming back. In the last two episodes, we have Lynda Carter returning as the President, Sharon Leal is coming back as M’gann. Obviously, there’s Tyler as Superman. These are some of the biggest episodes we’ve ever done. We’re so proud of Teri Hatcher, and so amazed she’s on our show and killing it as Rhea. There is a feature film quality finale, with huge guest stars, stunts and visual effects. We will get a glimpse of the Season 3 villain in the finale, which we’re also excited about.”

  3. The Flash: Savitar’s identity revealed! (Date: 02 May 2017)
    Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells EW, “What’s really cool for anyone who thought that there wasn’t a plan, or we didn’t know, or we were making this up as we go, this was always where we were heading,” Kreisberg says. “The idea that the darkest villain we could come up with was actually a very damaged version of our hero was interesting and fresh to us. We’re not only competing with all the stuff that we’ve done on Flash, but we’re always competing with everything we’ve done on all the other shows. So to have our lead actor be both the hero and the villain isn’t something we’ve done before, so that was exciting for us as storytellers.”

  2. Echo Kellum Previews Team Arrow’s Last Stand Against Prometheus (Date: 03 May 2017)
