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.

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.

FEEDBACK:

Hey guys I love your show as always. There are a few thoughts I have and wanted to get your opinion on it as well.

I think Blackstar is actually Oliver And Felicity’s daughter. It makes sense, as she is super intelligent like Felicity and a great fighter like Oliver.

I wonder who is Emiko’s mother. My obvious thought is Ravager, considering her combat abilities and the history of Ravager and Robert, but I could be wrong. If that is the case, then why was Ravagers daughter never mentioned in season 2?

Thank you for your insight

David

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Stephen Amell Praises Stunt Team for Most Action-Packed ‘Arrow’ Episode Ever (Date: 27 Nov 2018)
    1. “Very proud of tonight’s episode,” Amell wrote. “It was a logistical quagmire because of the amount of stunt work involved. All departments had to be on their games and the producers had to have a ton of faith in us and in particular the stunt department. I hope it showed!”
    2. “[This week], they just turned the stunt department loose,” Amell said. “It was the shortest script that I’ve ever read because it had such little stage direction in it. It was basically Beth going to James Bamford and saying, ‘This is through line of what happens to Oliver from start to finish. Do what you can in the time that you have. Go.’ There’s some specific stuff like Stanley gets Oliver with a needle and Oliver’s tied up or whatever, but all that choreography, that was something that the stunt department I think really excelled in. We’re not going to get nominated for a stunt Emmy, because we don’t get nominated for a stunt Emmy. But we should get nominated for a stunt Emmy.”

  2. DC Releases Extended Arrowverse Elseworlds Trailer (Date: 25 Nov 2018)
    1. The extended clip shows Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen waking up under Barry Allen’s identity as The Flash with Iris West-Allen unaware of the changes to reality. As the hero regroups with Barry, under his identity as the Green Arrow, and Supergirl, they find a threat that endangers of all the DCTV Multiverse.
