This isn't one series, it is two mini series--Torourkeus 19:57, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Character articles[edit]

Although I'm waiting until tomorrow to start, I'm planning on making some character articles for some of the main characters. Personally, I think the only ones who need them right now are Farik and Sayeed, but maybe Sayeed's girlfriend and the other members of the cell could also be featured.--CyberGhostface 15:17, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure that there's enough material to warrant separate articles. Per WP:FICT major characters are best covered in the main article and minor characters in a List of article. However, given the way the article is currently structured my feeling is tat a single List of article would be preferable rather than filling the main article with character descritions. Either way, I don't think individual character articles are the way to go. Otto4711 15:11, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
Either way there should be more character information, if nothing else on the main characters (really just Farik and Sayeed)Ucscottb4u 16:16, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
User:DrBat/List of Sleeper Cell characters
What does everyone think of this? The main characters would just be Darwyn and Farik, and then the rest would be grouped into either Terrorists (the various Cell members), FBI (the three agents Darwyn has worked with, along with other characters like Diaz), or Civilians (Gayle, the terrorists' family members, ect). --DrBat 00:14, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
Looks good. Otto4711 19:22, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

LGBT-related category[edit]

Please read the category description for Category:LGBT-related television programs. In relevant part it says "A category for television series, made-for-television films, news, entertainment, specials and other programming which deal with or feature important gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender characters or issues and may have same-sex romance or relationships as an important plot device." This series featured three known gay characters: Salim, a main character; Jason, an important recurring character; and the vehicle rental agent, a single-appearance character. This is the first time that I'm aware of that a gay Muslim has been depicted on American television. Showtime even produced a special promotional segment about gay Muslims to tie in to the series. Three characters, one of whom is a first in American television, plus a significant same-sex relationship, plus the touching on issues of Islam and sexuality clearly places this within the scope of the category.

the category now has "significant" in boldface, probably due to category spamming such as here. Come on. "some gay characters appear" doesn't make this a "gay themed series". You could as well tag it as "African American themed" because there were black cast members, and as "European American themed" because there were white cast members, oh, and as "heterosexual themed" because there were heterosexual characters. This is silly. This is a series about terrorists, some of which happen to be gay, not a series about gays, some of which happen to be terrorists. --dab (𒁳) 15:39, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Season 3[edit]

Is this going to happen? Tmaull 12:16, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

"a Muslim and embracing Islam as his religion"[edit]

This phrasing could be a lot less awkward. Varlaam. (talk) 01:31, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
