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.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. THE FLASH Actor Keiynan Lonsdale Reveals Kid Flash Exit Was His Choice As He Bids Farewell To The Role (Date: 08 June 2018)

It was recently announced that Keiynan Lonsdale who plays Wally West in the CW’s Arrow-verse shows would not be returning as series regular for season 4 of the network’s Legends of Tomorrow, the news came as a surprise for some while others had expected it after feeling the writers had little left to do with the character. In a Twitter post, Lonsdale revealed that the decision to depart the DC adaptation was his, revealing that this wasn’t a total goodbye as well explaining to fans and thanking them for their support. “I’ve changed a lot in the past year (as you’ve probably notice lol), and for infinite reasons, my perspective on life & what I want from it now is just completely different. Because of that, my heart told me it was the right time to continue my journey on an unknown path.”

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on Arrow, Empire, Roseanne, Fear TWD, B99, Timeless, Grey’s, Good Girls, Killing Eve and More (Date: 22 May 2018)
    1. In Season 7, Team Arrow will have to contend with an ambitious, young, anti-vigilante recruit at the SCPD. (If vigilantes were vampires, consider her your Buffy.) Another recurring role to be cast is that of a successful tech whiz who is gay, and who harbors a heartbreaking past.
    2. http://tvline.com/2018/05/22/empire-season-4-finale-deaths-dies-spoilers/
  2. Stephen Amell Reveals Goatee Is Coming in ‘Arrow’ Season 7 (Date: 20 May 2018)
    1. Star Stephen Amell just confirmed that an iconic part of Green Arrow’s look from the DC Comics universe will debut in Arrow Season Seven on The CW. Amell told a crowd at Motor City Comic Con that he will debut Oliver Queen’s classic goatee in Arrow’s upcoming season. Amell did caution that the goatee may not be sticking around forever, possibly signaling that it will be more of an Easter egg than a lasting redesign to the character. He also made it clear that Green Arrow’s Robin Hood hat won’t be making an appearance. “I can’t promise that I’m going to keep [the goatee] forever,” he said. “I can definitely promise that I’m not going to wear the stupid hat.”

  3. Stephen Amell Says Next Arrowverse Crossover is Awesome, Talks Batwoman Casting (Date: 31 May 2018)
    1. Batwoman is coming to the Arrowverse, and fans are already champing at the bit for news. Amell wasn’t really able to say very much about a major event story coming up several months from now. “I know the entire story of the crossover,” Amell told the audience. “It’s awesome, and I can’t talk about it at all. Comicbook.com was on hand during The CW’s recent Upfronts presentation, where Arrow star Stephen Amell announced that Batwoman will be introduced in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover. While it’s unclear exactly how Batwoman will factor into the story, it was hinted that Gotham City will make an appearance, finally introducing it officially into the Arrowverse after years of being teased, name-dropped, and joked about.

  4. Arrow’s Stephen Amell Reveals New Approach For Season 7 (Date: 25 May 2018)
    1. Arrow fans may still be talking about the crazy Season 6 finale, but Stephen Amell already has his eyes and mind set squarely on Season 7. The actor recently spoke about the upcoming season and teased the show will be taking a new approach to how it tells its stories in Season 7. “I think that it’s going to be…we can’t go bigger than we went last year, so we’re going more specific. . . . We are gonna introduce a new storytelling technique that I’m really excited about. All that I can say.” Stephen Amell couldn’t keep a smile from creeping up his face as he talked about the new technique Arrow will use to tell its stories in Season 7. The idea to switch up how the show tells its stories could be tied to new showrunner Beth Schwartz. We have to speculate it will be tied to Oliver’s incarceration in some way. After all, Arrow could be jumping a lot between prison and Star City, assuming we’re trusting Stephen Amell, who said fans shouldn’t expect the Green Arrow to be making any jailbreak situations happen.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. Chris ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Season 4 Detailed Synopsis Teases Constantine & Magical Threats (Date: 17 May 2018)
    1. After defeating the demon Mallus by cuddling him to death with a giant stuffed animal named Beebo, the Legends are ready to ease off the gas. Sara (Caity Lotz) and her team join Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) and the Time Bureau to help clean up the last few remaining anachronisms. The job seems straightforward enough until Constantine (Matt Ryan) arrives to inform them that, in solving one major problem, they have created another, much larger one. When the Legends let time crumble in order to release and defeat Mallus, the barrier between worlds softened. History is now infected with “Fugitives” – magical creatures from myths, fairytales, and legends. Having been expelled throughout time by people like Constantine, these Fugitives are now returning to our world in droves and making a real mess of things. As the Time Bureau is distrustful of and ill-equipped to deal with magic, the Legends must team up with everyone’s favorite demonologist to set history back on track.

      • ‘Arrow’: Who Are the Longbow Hunters? (17 May 2018) [http://comicbook.com/dc/2018/05/17/arrow-season-6-finale-longbow-hunters/]
      • A team of supervillains who debuted Green Arrow (Vol. 5) #31 from July 2014 in the storyline “The Outsiders War, Book 6: Spoils of War”. The volume was part of DC’s New 52 era. Created by Jeff Lemire, the Longbow Hunters was assembled by Richard Dragon — that would be Ricardo Diaz’s comic book counterpart — and was comprised of Count Vertigo, Brick, Red Dart, and Killer Moth.
    • Black Siren sends him into the river
    • Alive
  • Anatoly
    • Gets caught being Oliver’s ally
    • Surrenders; tells Oliver about Diaz meeting Longbow Hunters
  • What we got right –
    • Quentin dying by saving Black Siren
    • Oliver lost (Diaz didn’t win, which is what Michelle thought would happen)
    • Oliver out as GA, prison (Chris)
    • Team Arrow kisses and makes up to fight Diaz
  • Didn’t like? Episode and/or whole season
    • Michelle: Sara in episode for less than 3 minutes; what was the point? How come the FBI didn’t help Star City until now? Is the US government awful in the Arrowverse? Lame “Captain America: Civil War” ripoff storyline. How did Diaz do all of this?
    • SP –
      • “Hoss” I mean really. I hate that term and how much it’s used. Also. All if forgiven between Rene and Oliver?
      • Longbow hunters.  Really? Out of nowhere? And we didn’t get to see them much
      • I don’t see how this could have been a series finale
      • Little to no Flashbacks. We knew this going in but it really hurt the series
      • No funeral for Quentin…and it’s not really even possible. Memorial, yes. Funeral. No.
      • So who is the Star City Mayor? Agent Watson? Seems self-serving
      • No shirtless scenes
      • So Oliver spends the entire season in prison or even part of it and gets out….then what? He is outed as The Green Arrow.
      • “You have failed this city” missing a bit
      • What happened with the startup?
      • Fractured Team
      • Dinah Ruined
      • Wedding in the Cross-over (reception in cross-over)
    • Chris –
      • Black Siren arc was dumb all season long.  Redemption arc i never bought into.
      • Wasted guest appearance by Sara.  How does she miss getting to see her Dad, she has a timeship?
      • Nobody cares about secret identities anymore.
      • Forgetting that Ollie is a competent fighter.  He doesn’t need a team.
      • no mention of Talia all season
      • no deaths of consequence when Lian Yu blew up.
      • Rene got ruined in dumb civil war
  • Did like? Episode and/or whole season
    • Michelle – The last two episodes had a lot of action; Anatoly’s alive; Thea had a good exit; Diggle and Lyla
    • SP
      • E2 Laurel Lantz/Black Siren – Katie Cassidy
      • Ricardo Diaz/Dragon – Kirk Acevedo
      • James Caden – Michael Emerson
      • Sister Wives/Nyssa al Ghul – Katrina Law
      • Cross Over (because of LoT and Supergirl)
      • Tommy Merlyn/Christopher Chance – Colin Donnell/Wil Traval
    • Chris –
      • Crossover was fantastic
      • Slade and Nyssa return
      • Setup for Supermax story. It could be great.
  • S7 predictions?
    • Michelle – Roy comes back, first words are “Thea sent me.” Diaz gets captured quickly; otherwise, Felicity will be gone too long, and the show can’t be without Felicity and Oliver most of the season. Diggle head of ARGUS, Roy, and NTA not enough to carry show; has to be resolved by crossover or the crossover deals with this mess. There has to be a better villain or maybe not one big bad all season.
    • SP –

      • Felicity: Oliver tries to stop her from testifying; she does anyway; Van Owen brings up that he dad’s the Calculator, and if she wasn’t aware that her father had a secret, then she maybe she doesn’t know about Oliver; lies about not committing cyber crime
      • Oliver: Roy Harper not a vigilante; I know who GA is, but won’t reveal identity, even if he has to go to jail; has to tell the truth about not being on Lian Yu for the whole 5 years; if lied to public about those 5 years, then lying now
      • “Tommy Merlyn” bursts in during Oliver’s testimony (cool and dramatic, but falling glass could have hurt people)
      • “Tommy Merlyn” – I am Green Arrow; I don’t want someone else to ruin their life to protect me. I faked my death because of what Dad did. Rene and Diggle free “Tommy” after he’s arrested; “Tommy” turns out to be Chance
      • Diaz has Chance’s CIA file – bug in bunker; Cayden James intel
      • Laurel – Tommy is Green Arrow
    • Rene: doesn’t want Oliver to go to jail
      • Willing to break plea deal and go to jail
      • Ready to say Oliver isn’t GA, then Diaz comes in with Zoe; Oliver nods to Rene, and Rene tells truth
      • Has the idea to use Chance to be the judge
      • One good idea makes everything okay now
    • Oliver tells Jean Loring the truth; she wants him to have his “I am Iron Man” moment and highlight how he has saved the city; he refuses because he doesn’t want to put a target on his family; thought one day the mission would end and he could have a regular life after
    • Oliver tells Felicity to go to ARGUS protective custody if lose trial
    • Oliver tells William the truth; Felicity will make sure William becomes a good man
  • Trial ends
    • Verdict: Guilty
    • Loring calls for Judgment Notwithstanding the Verdict
      • Definition: reversal of a jury’s verdict by the trial judge when the judge believes there was no factual basis for the verdict or it was contrary to law. The judge will then enter a different verdict as “a matter of law.”
  • Quentin and Laurel (and Diaz)
    • Quentin – Laurel, you need to stand up to him
    • Laurel – maybe if your Laurel was smarter, she would be alive
    • Laurel – no poker face around Diaz; he notices she’s been different since burning guy; he chokes her
    • Laurel lies on stand, goes to Diaz, attacks; he has a thing that stops her
  • Diggle and Dinah try to knock Diaz around, but all of the cops on are Diaz’s side, so this was pointless
  • Diaz: Plan A didn’t work; Plan B – kill everyone

  1. Chris Legends of Tomorrow boss addresses returns of Amaya, Rip, and more (Date: 13 April 2018)
    1. “Yes, Maisie will absolutely be back,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim told EW. “We just felt like we owed it to the character to complete this arc, complete this story loop that we got her in. Once we took her off of her path in 1942, it was always incumbent upon us to return her to that path. That was something that hung over us as writers, and hung over the character… I’m looking forward to a different storyline for Amaya next year.”

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. The CW Renews 10 Series: ‘Riverdale’, All 5 DC Shows, ‘Supernatural’, ‘Dynasty’, ‘Jane the Virgin’ & ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ (Date: 02 April 2018)
    1. The CW again has given an early renewal to the bulk of its lineup, picking up all returning series on its fall schedule for the 2018-19 season as well as freshmen Dynasty and Black Lightning. The list includes all five DC superhero series, The Flash (Season 5), Arrow (Season 7), Supergirl (Season 4) and Legends of Tomorrow (Season 4), joined by newcomer Black Lighting (Season 2) as well as the venerable Supernatural, picked up for a 14th (!) season, sophomore success Riverdale (Season 3) and  comedies Jane the Virgin (Season 5) and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (Season 4) for what could be the praised duo’s final seasons.

  2. Spoiler Room: Scoop on The Originals, New Girl, NCIS: LA and more (Date: 05 April 2018)
    1. As Oliver continues to alienate everyone who loves him, expect to see more of the same in the season-ender — though it may not end the way you’d expect. “It’s a very unusual kind of finale,” EP Marc Guggenheim says. “It definitely has a cliffhanger, but not a traditional cliffhanger. Last year’s finale was a traditional cliffhanger. It was very much an ‘Oh my God, what’s going to happen?’ This is a different kind of cliffhanger. I would say it’s somewhere on the spectrum of the cliffhanger of season 1, which was like, ‘How is Oliver gonna go forward?’ and the cliffhanger of season 5, which was more of a traditional cliffhanger. This, I think, falls somewhere in the middle. We have a few surprises up our sleeves. There’s a couple of twists, there’s a couple of things that we’re doing that are not only very unexpected, but also unprecedented not just for Arrow, but for the other DC superhero shows as well.”
