  • Name: Should be Satyamev Jayate (TV series) rather than Satyamev Jayate (TV show)  Done
  • Lede: This article is about an Indian TV talk show → This article is about the Indian talk show  Done
  • Infobox: Rather than using commas, space them out like this (use <br />) It needs fixing for various parameters in the infobox:
  • Infobox: No need to link Season 1 there  Done
  • Infobox: Add "List of episodes" with the "list_episodes" parameter  Done
  • Infobox: "60-65 → 60–65". Per WP:DASH, the new version has a dash
  • Infobox: Present → present - irrelevant now.
  • Infobox: Website → Official website  Done
  • Lede: No need to link Indian television per WP:OVERLINK  Done
  • Lede: Link talk show  Done
  • Lede: English: Truth Alone Triumphs; that should be in italics  Done
  • Lede: Remove references as they should already be in article That's not acceptable! there must be references in the lead or else it may be PROD-ed
  • Lede: Has to summarize every section of the article It does!
  • Overall: Production should come before "Broadcast"
  • Plot: Try to add some sort of are that can explain more about what the show is. It has been covered here
  • Broadcast: Satyamev Jayate should be italic
  • Broadcast: "is the first show ever in the history of Indian Television to be aired simultaneously on a private channel network STAR and a national broadcaster Doordarshan" sounds like an ad. Please re-write
  • Broadcast: Indian Television. Television doesn't need to be in capitals, per MOS:CAPS
  • Soundtrack: All music composed by Ram Sampath. → All music is composed by Ram Sampath. Nothing can be done with that it's a default of the template
  • Soundtrack: Need ref. for "All music composed by Ram Sampath"
  • Soundtrack: Add the "length". There is nothing there for length

I found this issues rather quick, and I not even done yet. I'm afraid I going to have to fail this article. Please take this article to peer review, and then nominate it again. Thanks for you understanding. TBrandley 17:17, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Surely, not a contender for a quick-fail. I believe you are in a hurry, as you have taken custody of many articles in the GA Nomination page. If you are unwilling to do it or take time to provide inputs, let some other editor review it. The reasons you have provided are minor copy edits and could be easily rectified. Please, elucidate the reasons for doing a quick fail? Regards, theTigerKing  17:25, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Okay, please address the above issues. I'm still working on adding more issues. I have reverted the fail for the article. TBrandley 17:35, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
TB, remember that all articles you put on hold counts for the drive. You just have to close the review before July 31. So, no hurries when reviewing articles. Also, the No.1 position for the drive won't be announced until July 31, after Wiz and me finish checking all reviews. Regards. —Hahc21 17:41, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
This means that the articles are being quick failed just because the good article drive June-July period is heading towards an end. Very strange indeed! Regards, theTigerKing  17:54, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
Very strange, since quick-fails do not count for the drive. It is a common practice of users to hurry when the drive reaches the end just because they think their holds won't be counted. Cheers! —Hahc21 18:27, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
Please fix issues, I'll also make some minor adjustments. Cheers! TBrandley 18:38, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Just as a passer-by; the show will finish it's first season in 3-4 weeks. Wouldn't it be better to GA review it then? §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 14:58, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

The final episode would be aired this weekend. Would make GA edits immediately after that. No need to fail it at this time because of it. Regards, theTigerKing  16:48, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
Oh okay! I thought there are more episodes coming. §§AnimeshKulkarni (talk) 18:47, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Made some of the minor changes suggested in the GA review. Hope it's ok Face-smile.svg Coolcool2012(talk to me) 10:11, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Are any issues going to be fixed anytime soon? I'm going to have to fail if not soon. TBrandley 05:03, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Solving some problems. --Tamravidhir (Jiva Is Shiva!) 17:05, 23 August 2012 (UTC)


  • Per WP:LEDE, the intro should mention a bit of every section of the article in the lede. I do also see some content not in the actual article part.
  • Link Aamir Khan, its the first mention in actual article
  • Satyameva Jayate should have italics, rather ' marks
  • "on air on 6 May 2012" remove and put some else, since it doesn't really have anything to do with production, only that part
  • Use single quotes rather than curly quotes per WP:MOS for don't, etc. in article
  • Too many quotes mainly in production. Consider WP:PARAPHRASE.
  • Merge soundtrack section in production, as a sub-section. It is very related to production, should be there.
  • Songs are missing their lengths

More issues to come later. Regards. TBrandley 23:38, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Ping. Issues are above to be fixed. TBrandley 16:28, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
The original nominator hasn't edited on Wikipedia since August 11, and while the article has been edited, one of the additions seems to have been a new paragraph of dubious neutrality in the Internet phenomenon section (it reads rather like a promo for the company mentioned). If none of the above has been fixed, it may be time to close the review. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:29, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
Agree. I'm sorry, but I'm failing this article for GA. Feel free to re-nominate after it has significantly cleanup done to it, and the above has been addressed. TBrandley 15:23, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
