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.

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The Starling Tribune Reporters SP, Chris and Michelle review the penultimate Arrow season 8 episode 9 “Green Arrow & The Canaries.” In this episode the reporters discuss if Oliver Queen’s Crisis sacrifice was honored appropriately in the timeline, ponder why Oliver chose to keep the Earth 2 Laurel, what Earth Prime timeframe is Laurel from in the episode, the awesomeness of two canaries cries back again, wonder when the Crisis effects are fully settled and who’s memories will get restored and who stays oblivious, ask if 2040 Star City is still part of the Arrowverse of 2020, note that cool women don’t look at explosives, admire the good stunt action in the episode, smile at the return of the Queen Mansion, their theories of who the main villain is in the episode, search their memories on any other follow on series with a 20 year time jump, their wishes for what a green lit Green Arrow and the Canaries series would look like, and how the reporters are taking the other CW Arrowverse shows post-Crisis. Join the show next week for the final Arrow episode review and final Starling Tribune episode!
