At sometime over the past few days, the Forum has officially reached (and surpassed) the 500 member threshold. That's right! 500 members!
For those of you who don't remember or are unaware, we were given specific numbers regarding how much activity and attention we would need to generate, in the hopes of aiding the Dan Vs Revival pitch for HBOMax (It was in this post: dan-vs.freeforums.net/thread/613/operation-dan-method-revived-phase). The threshold for the Forum was 500 members. And low and behold, we made it!!! YAHOOOOOO!!!
Now this doesn't exactly guarantee that the revival will be greenlit right away. This is only one of the goals HBOMax will be taking a look at. If anything, I think sharing the growing meme trends (like "I don't care who the IRS sends, I am not paying taxes!" memes that are generating thousands, probably MILLIONS of hits by now), watching the show on most streaming platforms, furthering the hashtags, leaving reviews of the show on Amazon and other streaming services, talking about the show with fans old and new, posting Dan Vs fan content online, etc. will definitely contribute the revival effort even more.
At the moment, there are only 90 reviews of the show on Amazon Prime. And Dan Mandel seems pretty adamant about getting the number higher so...who knows how high we need that number to get towards. Higher at the very least. ^^;
As long as we remain active and vocal, HBOMax should see the appeal and decide from there if they want to move forward with bringing Dan back into a full series production. So let's continue to hope for the best!
At this time, we don't have a proper way of getting into contact with Chris Pearson, Dan Mandel, and/or Dan Angel (the executive producer of Dan Vs who bought the rights to the show) at this time. But I would LOVE to share this update (and other fandom updates) with them if we're able to find a way to contact them (and perhaps we could schedule another Q&A Zoom interview?).
