Normally you called off spinner as a finger spinner. Leg spinner is always a wrist spinner (using most of its wrist to get the spin), so usually wrist spinner and leg spinner are the same.

What is a googly?

A normal leg break spins from the leg to the off side, away from a right-handed batsman, a googly spins the other way, from off to leg, into a right-handed batsman and is distinct from an off break delivery. The bowler achieves this change of spin by bending the wrist sharply from the normal leg break delivery position. When the ball rolls out of the hand from the side near the little finger, as in a normal leg break, it emerges with clockwise spin from the bowler's point of view. A googly may also be achieved by bowling the ball as a conventional leg break, but spinning the ball further with the fingers just before it is released.

What is the difference between a spin-off and a reboot?

A reboot is basicly a remake of the original story. Any film that remakes an older movie is a reboot. The term is more commonly used when not much time has passed since the last film in the series was made. As of 2011, there continues to be talk of a Spider-man reboot that would not include Tobey Maguire. A spin-off is when a character in a television series or film gets their own series or film. "The Scorpion King" (2002) is a spin-off of "The Mummy" (1999). "Laverne & Shirley" was a spin-off of "Happy Days".
