I'll let Krentz answer that one.

The comparison is 100% on: Richard Delgado was on the show from the beginning,
and "Age of Reptiles" was very much an inspiration
for it. (And indeed, the original intention of the show [no narration, no
humans, just a few captions] and original name ["Reign of
the Dinosaurs"] would have made it even closer.)
By the way, got the word from the producer this morning: out of respect for the
10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, the
Discovery Channel is going to not show episodes 3 (a mixture of many short
stories) and episode 4 (the Hell Creek community up
through the first few weeks/months of the Paleogene) until a later date. I will
let the list know what that date is when it is
