A great ensemble creates a mysterious bond between a show and its viewers. The chemistry shared on screen brings with it a certain level of comfort.
But to refer to this quality as some kind of supernatural power does a disservice to the men and women who forge it. There is the talent of each individual performer to consider: If any of them falter, the whole dynamic falls apart. It’s a dynamic that requires work, too. Whether it’s bonding in real-life or being a good listener on set, chemistry is a science for these casts; it’s made, not found.
Indie Wire has compiled a list of the top television comedic ensembles over the last 25 years. Where does How I Met Your Mother rank among the greats? Take a look below:
23. | “How I Met Your Mother”
When you have nine seasons to explore five characters, you not only get a chance to delve into every possible relationship, but uncover the hidden skills of its cast. “How I Met Your Mother” unveiled Josh Radnor’s inner goofiness, Alyson Hannigan’s punchline chops, Jason Segel’s musical talents, Cobie Smulders’ bad-assery, and Neil Patrick Harris’s capacity for emotional depth. However you feel about the show’s ultimate conclusion, the best moments of “How I Met Your Mother” were always rooted in the ensemble’s “found family” feel, one built upon a well-developed history for its characters and chemistry that never failed to spark.
With their new comedy series Friends from College set to launch on Netflix Friday, Keegan-Michael Key and Cobie Smulders spoke with PEOPLE about playing a couple who are having trouble putting their college days behind them.
Tell us about your new comedy. What can we expect? SMULDERS: It’s about a group of friends who went to college together and decades later reunite and are still kind of figuring their lives out. It’s about friendship, but it’s like family. They bring out the best and the worst in each other.
Who had the hardest time keeping a straight face while filming? SMULDERS: Most likely me. I am a breaker. It’s one of my faults. KEY: Cobie very well may have been the most guilty, but she was also the most supportive. She’s Canadian. They can’t help but be nice.
What was it like filming in New York City? SMULDERS: It was freezing on some nights! But we were able to use it to our advantage. KEY: See! She’s so positive! It was way worse for the girls. The guys all had jackets, and the girls were bare-shouldered. But I think the frigid nights helped with some of the scenes where our characters didn’t want to be where they were. We didn’t want to be there either! It was like, “It’s fall! Why is it 36 degrees?!”
Friends From College also stars Fred Savage, Annie Parisse, Jae Suh Park and Nat Faxon and launches July 14 on Netflix. (Source)

When funny people are being funny, it’s best just to get out of their way and let them do their thing.
So when Friends From College stars Cobie Smulders and Fred Savage, as well as series co-creator Nick Stoller, started cracking themselves up while chatting with TVLine at a Netflix press event, we were glad our recorder was rolling: All the better to bring you in on the jokes.
Our topic of conversation: Their upcoming comedy, which is available Friday via the streaming video service. The series, the brainchild of Harvard alumni Stoller (The Carmichael Show) and wife Francesca Delbanco, follows a group of friends who met at the Ivy League university and have stayed close in the decades since graduation. In addition to How I Met Your Mother grad Smulders and Wonder Years alum Savage, the cast includes Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Nat Faxon (Ben and Kate), Annie Parisse (Law & Order) and Billy Eichner (Difficult People).
Read on as Savage, Smulders and Stoller do their thing.
TVLINE | Do we see flashbacks to the characters’ time at Harvard at all? STOLLER | No. Flashbacks are tough. You either have to cast people who don’t look like them, or you do weird — SMULDERS | We could look 20 years younger. [Laughs] SAVAGE | I was going to lose the weight. SMULDERS | I mean, what the f–k. Just give me a new hairstyle, and I look 21 again. [Laughs] STOLLER | Correct. SMULDERS | What are you talking about? Right, Fred? Just give [Keegan-Michael Key] a little bit of an afro, and we’re 21 again. SAVAGE | I look a lot like my photo when I was 21. [Laughs]
TVLINE | The first few episodes focus on a triangle that includes Keegan’s Ethan, Cobie’s Lisa and Annie’s Sam. Are other characters going to have their own episodes or their own arcs as we move through the season? STOLLER | Yeah. Everyone has different arcs, and we start with that relationship. But the whole show is just about nostalgia, whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing. And about how when you get together with your group of friends from, old group of friends, friends from college, you regress in a lot of ways… It can be both really helpful and loving to be around those people, and also not great.
