Quotes

Byrnoth: I'll make this brief. God knows you've got little enough time left on the planet. At cock's crow, we're off to fight the Vikings. Why? Because this little island is SICK of being invaded by Europeans! We've had the Romans, the Saxons, and now the Danes. For God's sake, who's next? The bloody Normans?

Rob Grant is only HALF of Red Dwarf
17 January 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Let's not forget that Rob Grant is only HALF of the team that brought us Red Dwarf - Doug Naylor was the other writer who penned much of the series. So, when wondering "how could the guy that wrote Red Dwarf have come up with such a bad show like Dark Ages," you have to consider that perhaps his solo work suffers from the lack of collaboration. Personally, I think the sharp downward spiral that Red Dwarf suffered after Naylor's departure showed us what an important part of the equation he was. "Dark Ages" shows us what Grant is capable of on his own. I have not seen this series yet, but was looking for information on it before I gave it a try. Learning that Rob Grant wrote it on his own is enough to make me give it a pass. By the way, if you're a Red Dwarf fan and have never read Doug Naylor's Red Dwarf novel, "Last Human," you really owe it to yourself to track down a copy. I think it proves beyond any doubt that Naylor was the more talented of the two.
