Episode link to[edit]

Was looking at the episode pages for flashpoint Seasons 1 + 2. Example Scorpio_(Flashpoint_episode) Link to for each doesn't work. I checked the examples of good episode pages given in project page. The link for Meet_Kevin_Johnson works but not for A_Streetcar_Named_Marge. Before I go correcting the links in Flashpoint episodes I decided to ask here as I don't know enough about tv episode templates. Is this a template problem? OR do each episode with an incorrect link need the link corrected? Linnah (talk) 09:29, 30 September 2012 (UTC)


I need some help trying to format the episode table on Shazzan. I put up the list but something is causing it to show up on the bottom of the page. If anyone can help fix it I'd really appreciate it. Thanks. NintendoFan (Talk, Contribs) 12:58, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Policy inconsistent with reality[edit]

It seems like the notability guideline:

"it is likely that each individual episode of a television series will not be notable on its own, simply because there are not enough secondary sources available."

is pretty commonly disregarded. For example, every episode of Modern Family Season 2 has its own article. This might be symptomatic of wikipedia policy being out of step with what readership is seeking, or it might be an example of writers and fans ignoring a policy and diluting wikipedia's quality. Given the widespread disregard for the policy, though, it seems worthwhile to debate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:30A:C08C:A6F0:21C:B3FF:FEC3:2572 (talk) 13:32, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

RfC on Game of Thrones episode Oathkeeper[edit]

There's an RS RfC on the Game of Thrones episode Oathkeeper talk page. It's about the use of a blog source to provide a backing for listing the chapters of the book upon which the episode was based. Participation (and fresh voices) would be welcome. Darkfrog24 (talk) 03:02, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Any point in writing a Lucy Show episode article?[edit]

I have not tracked at all whether TV show episode articles are frequently AfD'd successfully, and on what grounds. Wondering if there is any point to creating an article on a Lucy Show episode, absent any clear showing of it being distinctly notable on its own? (It was from a season for which she won an Emmy). The episode "Lucy and the Pool Hustler" is noteworthy as one of the few on-screen depictions of women-only pool tournaments and women doing well at pool, but I haven't found any external source that treat the episode as anything special. I'm skeptical than notability is "inherited" from a season down to article (i.e., that it's expected that every season article will eventually spawn articles for all episodes in the season). I've already written a draft of the plot summary, but I don't mind abandoning it if making an article on Lucy Show S06E13 would just lead to a deletion.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  03:14, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Bot to update lists of television episodes?[edit]

Has anyone thought about creating a bot to update lists of television episodes? Is there a place to ask for television series to have their articles updated? TeriEmbrey (talk) 19:03, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

:P.S. Is their anyone interested in updating the Public Broadcasting System shows that air in the Chicago market? TeriEmbrey (talk) 14:22, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
