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.

FEEDBACK

From our last video on YouTube: Pfruit0916 I watched Arrow 150 and really enjoyed the documentary format, it was a fresh take on an episode. Plus, it was nice to see so many guest appearances, specifically Thea & Quentin. Also, the call back to Adam Hunt in s1 was great. The villain of the week was a throwaway but he gave us some great fight scenes. I like that they addressed the lack of bromance between Diggle and Oliver. It was nice to finally see a version of John Diggle I recognize. I hope they have a similar conversation between Diggle and Felicity because that friendship has been strained. Also, he really needs to tell olicity about Diaz. William’s subplot, while not exactly fun to watch, actually made sense. He has been kidnapped, an explosion killed his mom, his dad went to prison and then his new mom was almost shot in front of him. That kid has a lot of issues. And while I understand that after the break-in during 7×08 and the Elseworlds craziness olicity probably thought it was best to not bring him home to that insanity, I also understand his resentment. There’s more to the story since he was expelled. I’m inclined to believe they will be revealing his sexuality soon and that may be playing a part in his behavior. (Side note: They may not share blood but he really is a lot like felicity if he was able to create a fake school website. And I really appreciate them showing the friendship between William and Zoe that was mentioned in the flash forwards.) I found Mayor Pollard’s turn around and acceptance of vigilantes abrupt. We keep being told by the flash forwards that vigilantism, led to the destruction of Star City. I feel that Pollard deciding to deputize the whole team is a set up for their downfall.

Discord:

StephenJondrew – I still suspect the flash forwards could be wiped out – perhaps it even leads to how the timeline is resolved. Like maybe an action they do in the future affects the past. Because I totally agree SP – I think that as they stand, it puts a damper on it. As someone said on twitter that I saw – they basically mean that all their hard work in the present “means jack poop”
