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.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Arrow: Ghostbusters’ Ernie Hudson Signs On for Guest Role (Date: 06 March 2019)
    1. Ernie Hudson will make a guest appearance in “Spartan,” the upcoming 19 episode of Arrow’s seventh season. The episode will see Hudson play a Four-Star General with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) who joins Team Arrow for a special mission. The kicker is that Hudson’s character apparently has a history with David Ramsey’s John Diggle. In turn, unresolved tension from their past is likely to surface when they are once again forced to work together.

  1. Arrow to End With Shortened Season 8 (Date: 6 March 2019)
    1. Oliver Queen is hanging up his bow and arrow: The CW’s flagship DCTV series Arrow will end its run with an abbreviated Season 8. Star Stephen Amell made the announcement on Twitter, writing, “Playing Oliver Queen has been the greatest professional experience of my life… but you can’t be a vigilante forever.” The actor went on to reveal that the show will “return for a final run of 10 episodes this fall,” before concluding, “There’s so much to say… for now I just want to say thank you.”
    2. “This was a difficult decision to come to, but like every hard decision we’ve made for the past seven years, it was with the best interests of Arrow in mind,” executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Beth Schwartz said in a statement. “We’re heartened by the fact that Arrow has birthed an entire universe of shows that will continue on for many years to come. We’re excited about crafting a conclusion that honors the show, its characters and its legacy and are grateful to all the writers, producers, actors, and — more importantly — the incredible crew that has sustained us and the show for over seven years.”

ARROW NEWS:

  1. ‘Arrow’ and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Rumored to Be Ending After “Crisis on Infinite Earths” (Date: 23 Feb 2019)
    1. Both shows have already been renewed for their eighth and fifth seasons respectively, but the new rumor suggests they will end after those seasons. If this is the case, it will likely tie into The CW’s plans for their next crossover event with “Crisis on Infinite Earths” refreshing the landscape of the network’s superhero shows.
    2. Amell teased what he saw as the end of his role on the series last year, explaining on Michael Rosenbaum’s Inside of You podcast that there’s only one box left to check on Oliver Queen’s “to do” list. “The only thing that is left for him to do – and he doesn’t need to die to do this – is he needs to leave a legacy.” Amell said last year. “Because we have all these other shows that exist. So whether Arrow continued on in the absence of Oliver Queen, or someone else took up the mantle of the Green Arrow… I think leaving a legacy is the last box left to tick for the character.”
    3. https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/02/23/arrow-and-legends-of-tomorrow-rumored-to-be-ending-after-crisis-/

GENERAL DC NEWS:

  1. ‘Batwoman’: Elizabeth Anweis Cast In the CW’s DC Pilot (Date: 22 Feb 2019)
    1. Elizabeth Anweis (9-1-1) has been cast opposite Ruby Rose in Batwoman. Anweis will play Catherine Hamilton-Kane, Kate Kane’s step-mother. Catherine made her fortune as a savvy, bullheaded defense contractor, and all those billions position her as one of Gotham’s most powerful residents. For Catherine, it’s a matter of the bottom line: Batwoman is bad for business.

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.

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”

FEEDBACK

YouTube:

From YouTube:  Pfruit0916

I thought this was a decent episode but had entirely too much Rene. That being said, it did get me invested in Emiko & her hunt for her mother’s killer. I’m going ahead and predicted that this Dante person, Dig & Lyla are investigating is also responsible for Kazumi’s death. Dante/his organization obviously has resources since he paid the long bow hunters for Diaz, so he would be able to commit a murder and set someone else up for it. I’m glad the reveal of Emiko came very quickly. Felicity was able to figure out that it was Thea who killed Sara based on olivers DNA markers in s3 so if she didn’t figure this out I would have been annoyed. Oliver’s reaction to the news made complete sense. He knows he parents have made questionable choices but they loved him and Thea. So of course it would be hard to reconcile that the same parents who died to protect him would then abandon Emiko.

I really enjoyed The olicity interactions this episode. In 7×08 a big part of their conflict was that she changed and as Oliver said, He fell in love with the old Felicity. And she said she couldn’t go back to being the girl he met with the red pen. I think she just needed reassurance that he could accept this new version of her. He gave her that in the crossover, when he said no matter who she grew into he would love her. Now they can move forward as a team. The DNA recognition security system that felicity installed in their apartment may be in the first step toward the Archer program that’s mentioned in the future.

Also, I found it interesting that Curtis was the only team arrow member not mentioned as having the Mark of Four. I have a feeling he’s dying at some point this season. Lastly, since the show seems to be shifting to Arrow Jr. with the hero’s kids showing up I’m wondering when we will see grown up JJ.

Though Martin will be back by episode 15, showrunner Todd Helbing promised there would be an in-show reason for Joe’s absence. “The Flash & The Furious,” the mid-season premiere, made good on that: he is off visiting his son Wally in Blue Valley with his daughter Jenna. Jesse L. Martin, who plays Joe, took a medical leave of absence from the series in October due to a back injury he suffered during the show’s summer hiatus.
