GA review – see WP:WIAGA for criteria

Oh, hey, Krycek.

  1. Is it reasonably well written?
    A. Prose quality:
    B. MoS compliance for lead, layout, words to watch, fiction, and lists:
    "in a parallel with the story of Hansel and Gretel (Lord/Collins)" -> I'd say it's already implied that the kids fit these roles, so I'd drop the bracketed bit here.
    "who invites him to hang out." -> seems a little informal.
    " [in 'The Price of Gold']" -> both source and MOS use double quote marks ("The Price of God"), so stick with that.
    "as Young Peter Bishop and Young Olivia Dunham" -> "as younger versions of Peter Bishop and Olivia Dunham"
    "It earned a 3.3/8 among adults between the ages of 18 and 49," -> include a link to Nielsen rating and explain what the numbers mean (% of sets in use/total population)
    "'ong enough to watch 'True North.'"" -> dropping the single quotes and adding italics would be an acceptable typographical change.
  2. Is it factually accurate and verifiable?
    A. References to sources:
    B. Citation of reliable sources where necessary:
    C. No original research:
  3. Is it broad in its coverage?
    A. Major aspects:
    B. Focused:
    Although it does seem complicated, I'm wondering if the plot section is a little long.
  4. Is it neutral?
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. Is it stable?
    No edit wars, etc:
  6. Does it contain images to illustrate the topic?
    A. Images are tagged with their copyright status, and valid fair use rationales are provided for non-free content:
    B. Images are provided where possible and appropriate, with suitable captions:
    Images are grand.
  7. Overall:
    Pass or Fail:
    Not a lot of work to be done here, on hold for seven days. GRAPPLE X 20:17, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Yeah I know the plot is a bit long, but I can't really find anything useless to trim, as this is one of those series that usually has every little detail possessing some level of significance. Otherwise I believe I've addressed your concerns (italicized True North and tweaked the prose). Thanks, as always, for reviewing! Wow, that man certainly knows his science fiction...!

Fairy muff then, happy enough to pass this one. Well done! If you haven't checked him out yet, do so. GRAPPLE X 04:23, 31 October 2012 (UTC)
