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. ‘Arrow’: Two Major Characters Leave the Show (Date: 11 Feb 2019)
    1. By the end of the episode, both Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum) and the younger version of William Clayton (Jack Moore) left the city and, as far as we can tell, the series.
    2. Kellum posted to Twitter: I’m so thankful to have been a part of this amazing show for the last four years. It has truly been a pleasure to get to work with such wonderful human beings on a daily basis and to interact with all the fans who make the show possible….This has been the most exhilarating experience I’ve ever had and I will definitely pop in here and there (you haven’t seen the last of Curtis Holt) in the future….Most importantly, thank you to all the fans who accepted me on this fantastic journey. I’ll always get to say I was Mr. Terrific! That’s so damn cool! Excelsior!

  2. Why the Arrowverse Shows and Friends Will Likely Leave Netflix (Date: 12 Feb 2019)
    1. Like practically every other Hollywood studio or network, WarnerMedia is set to launch its own streaming service which will seek to compete against the likes of Netflix and Hulu, as well as Disney’s forthcoming launch of Disney+. And while the service is set to include plenty of new content — including some new DC content — like its competitor Disney, Warner Bros. is reportedly planning to pull some of its content from Netflix ahead of the launch of WarnerMedia.
    2. With Reilly telling the press that “sharing destination assets is not a good model,” and the belief that said assets should be “exclusive to the service,” it would seem the Arrowverse shows are likely to follow suit. Currently, The CW and Netflix have a deal which sees the channel’s shows debut on the streaming service just weeks after a season wraps up. That deal, however, is set to expire this Spring, and it’s not expected that it’ll be renewed. As Reilly explained, Warner Bros. is very interested in putting those titles “on our platform,” which means Warner Bros. would likely retain exclusive streaming rights to shows such as Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and the non-Arrowverse Black Lightning.
    3. It remains to be seen whether or not WarnerMedia will absorb the previously launched DC Universe, which is home to shows such as Titans, Young Justice: Outsiders, and the forthcoming Doom Patrol. Warner Bros. has yet to unveil an official launch date for its latest streaming service, but it is expected to arrive, at least in beta form, by year’s end. As for the price point, the streaming service is expected to offer three different membership tiers, though how those will break down remains unknown at this time.

FEEDBACK

From our last video on YouTube: Pfruit0916 First, we got a documentary and now a horror episode. It’s nice that after 7yrs they are still doing new things to keep the episodes exciting and Brendan Fletcher did a great job as Stanley, he was very creepy. The one complaint I had was the amount of time spent on trying to save Dinah, it wasn’t really suspenseful because we know that she survives in the flash-forwards. I’m okay with Curtis leaving, the writers seemed to be struggling to incorporate him in the story for a while now, but maybe he will show up again for the next crossover since they will probably need every hero they can get. Also, his exit gives Felicity full control of Helix, so Smoak Tech can finally rise. William going to live with his grandparents makes sense. I’m glad it wasn’t Oliver sending him away for his safety but instead giving him a choice in what happens to him. I am incredibly curious about why William feel like they “abandoned” him, when we see that it was his decision to leave and olicity said they would call, visit, etc.(I appreciate the detail of having Felicity show him the trick on the Rubik’s cube, since it was in the flash-forwards at the beginning of the season. But that still leaves me wonder how william knew where her office was in Smoak Tech if he left before the company was built.) Mia is the olicity baby, so I guess the transitions in 7×08 were actually clues. It makes sense, they have a son who is tech oriented like Felicity and a daughter who is a fighter like Oliver. Plus, they get to parallel Emiko/Oliver’s relationship in the present with Mia/William’s in the future. I remember Oliver randomly mentioning “The scroll & Key” in 7×08, I’m wondering if that’s going to play into the flash-forwards because Mia has a giant key tattoo. We know from Oliver’s history that all of his tattoos had significance. I’m thinking William is the scroll & Mia is the Key in this equation and that’s why are being brought together after all these years. Lastly, I’ve noticed that many aspects of this season are like season 1. Random things happened like Walter buy Unidac industries only for them to later reveal that it was a major plot point because that company built the earthquake machine. I think they are doing that again with the fires in the Glades. We found out Emiko’s mom was shot & it was covered up with a building fire. Earlier this season she helped stop a group of men who were setting a theatre on fire in the Glades.They said someone was buying up the burnt properties for cheap. I think thats Dante/The Ninth Circle and it plays a part in how the Glades rise.
