One of those unsourced, limitless lists that fails WP:NOT#INFO. Also almost none of the films and television shows listed doesn't meet the criteria of an "ensemble cast", and I don't see how this list would ever abide to our policies in original research. Despite Wikipedia:Listcruft being an essay, this list clearly meets most of the criteria. Delete Secret account 06:50, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Undecided. It's relatively easy to pick out TV shows with ensemble casts: Taxi, Friends, Soap, Hill Street Blues. Not so facile with films, but I suppose they could be referenced. (I don't agree with most of those currently listed: Batman Begins, Bruce Almighty, Robocop???) What troubles me is the hazy definition of "ensemble". How many of the main cast have to get comparable screen/air/stage time? Four, five, more? Clarityfiend (talk) 07:13, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep/merge Both this and the parent article ensemble cast need work but AFD is not cleanup. If you look at the sources rather than reaching immediately for the delete button then you find that awards are often given to plays, films and TV shows for "best ensemble cast". This might then be a simple way of restricting the list to notable examples - require them to have won an award for this. Warden (talk) 08:31, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
