Out of the ashes of ‘Friends’ rose a new comedy drama about a group of young adults hanging out in Manhattan.
Actually, from the ashes of ‘Friends’ rose a completely unwatchable travesty (‘Joey’) which even I, the die-hardest of die-hard ‘Friends’ lovers, couldn’t bear to watch. Until I started writing this and went to look up the source, I was fully convinced that ‘How I Met Your Mother’ came from the same writing and production team. I can find absolutely no evidence of this online, not nowhere. Apparently it is a completely separate and original show of its very own.
(I will probably do spoilers, at least in terms of overall structure and feel. I will try to be a bit vague)
