Friends definately wins.Though there are many great shows on the list nothing compares to the crazy relationships in that show.
| Feb 23, 2010 12:51PM EST
Ok seriously HIMYM has a great group of friends as does scrubs, buffy, firefly, the original friends. However no ones mention the judd apatow shows. For example freaks and geeks had an awesome group of friends and made brilliant t.v. As did undeclared.

DAWSON'S CREEK!!!! Not many people probably even remember this show; but it is amazing!! And it has some pretty good friends with an interesting love triangle.

1. FRIENDS!!!! i love the relationship of each character, thats how real friends are, they're always there for each other :) i've watched the whole series for more than 3 times and their jokes never gets old! :) 2. Sex and the city 3. HIMYM, i love barney! i dont really like marshall and lily's roles. It is not as hilarious as FRIENDS except for Barney :) i also noticed that the show has a lot of similar jokes with FRIENDS.
| Feb 19, 2010 12:07AM EST
I saw Frasier and Niles back up there. Yeah. Gotta give the Frasier family their due. ... no other series Finale has ever made me shed a tear. Frasier's made me shed several. My sister gave me a few weird looks. (Seriously, watch the finale and think about all that was said in the pilot - specifically the Martin/Frasier stuff- and you won't think I'm so weird) And jpmcoy22, I gotta say I think Robin is prettier. What can I say, I'm a sucker for... ... people who aren't Jennifer Aniston? Honestly, I'm tired of seeing Jennifer Aniston. Her looks are boring me.

One Tree Hill-original cast, Lucas, Nathan, Haley, Peyton, Brooke
| Feb 18, 2010 9:42PM EST
how bout the actual scoobie gang but i like buffy scoobies too and boy meets world
| Feb 18, 2010 9:35PM EST
FRIENDS for the win!!! HIMYM is great too. but come on. here are the stats: 1. ROSS vs TED Ross can be funny and serious. Ted is usually passive with the funny part, but controls the main plot of the show. Still, Ross can do both. ROSS WINS 2. RACHEL vs ROBIN Hands down, for me. Rachel is prettier (duh, Jennifer Aniston). RACHEL WINS 3. JOEY vs BARNEY I have to give it to Barney. What can I say, that guy's legend--wait for it... BARNEY WINS 4. PHOEBE vs. LILY Phoebe is just so damn weird. lol PHOEBE WINS 5. CHANDLER vs MARSHALL I really don't care about this one. I'll give this to Marshall, just because he's up against classic Chandler. lol MARSHALL WINS 6. But wait, Monica blows everyone away with her domineering and perfectionist attitude. MONICA WINS ALL. MONICA IS PART OF FRIENDS. FRIENDS WIN ALL.

| Feb 18, 2010 8:32PM EST
How I Met Your Mother, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Firefly!
| Feb 18, 2010 8:21PM EST
Friends for sure. I also loved Lipstick Jungle and Boy Meets World.
| Feb 18, 2010 7:12PM EST
The shows that aren't on the list that I would add are "Spaced", "Coupling" and the group in the first two seasons of "Skins". Though all of those shows are British, I think they capture the group of friends theme very well. Unlike most American shows, not only do they just play on the group of friends setting they also progress their relationships as friends which allows for a plot purely from the natural evolution of the characters.
| Feb 18, 2010 7:12PM EST
How I Met Your Mother is a great show and i love watching their friendships. But for some reason a lot of these shows are comedies. Some dramas have great friendships too. One Tree Hill is a GREAT example. I think they were the perfect group of friends!
| Feb 18, 2010 6:52PM EST
dunno which to choose but I'd like to add another awsome group of friends in the show "My Boys" :D
| Feb 18, 2010 6:19PM EST
| Feb 18, 2010 6:15PM EST
How I Met Your Mother and Definitely the Scoobie Gang from Buffy.
| Feb 18, 2010 4:32PM EST
BOY MEETS WORLD! the ultimate middle school to post-college group of friends! but from the actual list, you can't beat Friends. It's all there in the title.
| Feb 18, 2010 4:19PM EST
Scrubs its so Good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
| Feb 18, 2010 4:09PM EST
The order is simple: 1. Friends (of course)2. Seinfeld3. How I Met Your Mother4. That 70s Show5. Buffy
| Feb 18, 2010 3:58PM EST
Friends. Also like Buffy. :)

How on Earth can someone say Friends is BETTER than How I Met Your Mother? You cannot even compare the friendship bonds between Barney and Ted, Barney and Lily, Ted and Marshall, Lily and Robin, Robin and Barney and Robin and Ted and Ted and Lily, so unique and so equally amazing, to those between the Friends' bunch. I'm a hardcore fan of both shows but in terms of friendship, nothing beats HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.
| Feb 18, 2010 2:41PM EST
How I met your mother

I like the HIMYM crew. I also like the Scoobie and Angel Investigations. But if I had to pick one, it would be another Whedon group I haven't seen mentioned. I gotta go with Firefly crew. I feel like they were the result of all Joss learned from Buffy and Angel (the shows, not the characters). Like Buffy, they're a tight-knit family unit. And like Angel, they're professionals, where everyone has a place and purpose. Not everyone in Buffy had a purpose (Willow only got useful after a few seasons, and Xander never really became useful - in comparison to Buffy.. they were more like the cheerleading squad..) and Angel and his team were never as close as the Scoobies (Angel inc just worked together, they didn't have sleepover parties together). The Firefly crew was a professional group of friends who lived and worked together.

i second whoever voted for psych! shawn and gus are the awesomest tv friendship ever!

I definitely think HIMYM is the best. I don't think Grey's Anatomy is really that focused on friendships though, so it's not really that suitable for this list.
| Feb 17, 2010 11:56PM EST

How I Met Your Mother is AMAZING, but I have to say that #1 goes to Friends, the group that made us love BFFs in the first place. :)
| Feb 17, 2010 1:18PM EST
How I Meet Your Mother is the champ!
| Feb 17, 2010 12:55PM EST
Friends (Is there really even a question about this?)
| Feb 17, 2010 12:50PM EST
Seinfeld and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia are the most entertaining to watch.HIMYM is really fun too, and it also has the heartwarming factor going on.Oh, and The Big Bang Theory: Sheldon, his friends and one treasured acquaintance.
| Feb 17, 2010 11:44AM EST
I'd say FRIENDS, best group ever! HIMYM comes second. love it!
| Feb 17, 2010 11:24AM EST
why FRIENDS of course
| Feb 17, 2010 10:56AM EST
Friends and How i met your mother are the bestThen comes Sex and the cityAnd i don't think grey's anatomy belongs here...i would have selected The Big Bang Theory, which is also a great show about friendship (actually, geek friendship !)
| Feb 17, 2010 10:53AM EST
How I met your mother. definitely!second would have to be buffy & the gang though :D
| Feb 17, 2010 10:47AM EST
Buffy's Scooby Gang!! how is that not up there? Love Scrubs as well
| Feb 17, 2010 10:34AM EST
Buffy's gang for sure!
| Feb 17, 2010 10:20AM EST
Srubs everytime :D :D

| Feb 17, 2010 4:52AM EST
Psych. Shawn and Gus
| Feb 17, 2010 4:32AM EST
HIMYM, Chuck, Big Bang Theory (the most interesting take on friendship, but it's highly entertaining)
| Feb 17, 2010 4:14AM EST
Definitly Friends but Sex and the city is close second =D
| Feb 17, 2010 4:09AM EST

oh wow. i have multiple.. Friends, HIMYM, Seinfeld, Scrubs, Sex&The City, Queer as Folk, 30 Rock.
| Feb 17, 2010 2:48AM EST
If ur talking ever then it would be friends, seinfeld, saved by the bell, scrubs, and that 70s show. But if its just on tv right now, then it would be HIMYM, BBT, Chuck, Entourage, Its always sunny, and Community
| Feb 17, 2010 2:38AM EST

| Feb 17, 2010 12:42AM EST
Friends, How I met your Mother and Queer as Folk all have great groups of friends but QaF is best. Buffy and Angel should both be up there, scooby gang and Angel investigations.
| Feb 16, 2010 11:55PM EST
friendsHIMYMscrubsand even though buffy isnt up there i think it should be
| Feb 16, 2010 11:33PM EST
I third the Scoobies from Buffy, and the HIMYM gang, too. I never thought I could love a comedy ensemble cast more than the Friends one, but then HIMYM came along, and they're awesome!
| Feb 16, 2010 11:13PM EST
Oh and scrubs too!
| Feb 16, 2010 11:12PM EST
Good point, sarrypotter. I vote the Scooby gang in buffy the vampire slayer!Xander, Willow, Buffy--- you don't get better friends than them.:)either them or the cast of Friends, because they're just hilarious.
| Feb 16, 2010 10:23PM EST
Grey's anatomy doesn't belong on there and How I met your mother friends are number 1! (at least in my book)
| Feb 16, 2010 10:06PM EST
seinfeld!!! and i'd almost remove grey's anatomy, the friendships aren't that amazing...
| Feb 16, 2010 9:37PM EST
I love the friends on How I Met Your Mother, but what about the Scooby gang in Buffy the Vampire Slayer? That was a group of friends I always wanted to be a part of!
