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.

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.

    • Recognizes Ray Palmer; working in miniaturization
    • I’m no hero; if the world’s ending, then I need to be home
    • Iris talks him into helping them
  • Team Legends

    • Anti-Monitor wants to replace this universe with his own
    • Can only attempt to save what remains

    • His world and family died; distracted by work
    • Only Earth left
    • You’ll know what to do when the moment arrives, Pariah
  • Harbinger
    • Arrives on Waverider; memory fuzzy
    • Flash and Superman figure out she’s the enemy; is the Anti-Monitor; destroys Earth-1
  • Anti-Monitor
    • Flash 90 on treadmill; failsafe – cannon destroy all Earths at once.
    • Takes over Harbinger
    • Mobius
    • Takes Novu’s power; destroys Earth-1
  • Lex Luthor
    • Of course he’s going to take a page from the book and make himself a hero
  • Pariah
    • Controlled by Anti-Monitor; bears witness
    • Cisco vibes his memories
    • Brings Black Lightning, who doesn’t know about multiple Earths and whose Earth is gone
    • Teleports Flash, Sara, Batwoman, Supergirl, Superman, J’onn J’onzz, and Ryan to the Vanishing Point – outside of time and space; Lex comes out of Superman to rewrite destiny
  • Black Lightning
    • Contains energy from canon
    • Not from Earth-1
    • Rage against the dying of the light
  • Thorns:
    • SP
      • All three episodes sort of feel like a waste now because everything is gone
      • Loved the cameos, but some are obscure for Arrowverse fans
        • Choi
        • Lucifer
        • Spectre
        • Stargate Pioneer
      • Jon Cryer – what a great Lex – plus the Christopher Reeve connection in Superman IV. Yes, I know we’ve discussed it before but I felt it needed to be mentioned again.
      • The way the Flash cast just miraculously portals in
        • Punctuates the separate episodes and not true continuous miniseries event
      • Black Lightning just a bit more than a cameo
      • It would have been nice to see Oracle on Earth 203
      • World’s Finest confrontation …a bit old with Batman v Superman
      • Why does Vibe live again when Cisco went through the whole arc of becoming non meta again? – I know,because plot and he was the only one to get through the treadmill force field. But….really?
    • Chris
      • Why isn’t Dig the Green Lantern yet?
      • Spectre reveal kinda came out of nowhere
    • Michelle
      • Still upset that we didn’t see Nash become Pariah or Lyla become Harbinger and why she ended up w/Anti-Monitor and as the Anti-Monitor
      • If Anti-Monitor could destroy all Earths at once, why not do so? (I know, because plot, but still)
      • Oliver didn’t need to become the Spectre; Corrigan would’ve been great to see
    • Roses
      • SP –
        • All the cameos.
        • John Wesley Shipp’s 90’s flash gets an ending
        • Diggle’s issue about not being with Oliver – true to the characters
        • Routh’s Superman … again.
      • Chris
        • John Wesley Shipp is OG flash again! and we get an actual 90s flash flashback
        • Brandon Routh is still great. Can we give him a Superman show?
        • Diggle and Oliver’s friendship is shown to be a big deal when he’s the one that pulls him out.
        • Lex tricks everyone (keep in mind he sees himself as a hero normally). BUt bummed it’s Routh Supes that is gone :(
        • Kara and Kate conversation ends when Kara tells her to keep the kryptonite
  • Michelle
    • Lucifer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Tom Ellis and the show. Maze is Mazikeen, loyal servant/friend of Lucifer’s; Constantine helped bring her out of Hell to Earth; there are rules preventing Lucifer from just bringing whoever he wants out of Hell; even Lucifer has to go back to Hell; visit is pre-TV show
    • Treadmill from comics; a Flash has to die; flashback to Flash TV show (knew this was going to happen, still teared up anyway)
    • Logical reason to bring in Black Lightning
    • Diggle brings back Oliver
    • Still loving Snart as the voice of the Waverider
