Welcome back to Bleeding Cool’s recap/review of NBC’s Thursday night comedy series A.P. Bio, starring It’s Always in Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Glenn Howerton and Happy!‘s Patton Oswalt. Two week’s of consistent scheduling in a row means we’re taking a look at tonight’s sixth episode, ‘Freakin’ Enamored”:
A.P. Bio s01e06 ‘Freakin’ Enamored’: When Jack (Glenn Howerton) is attracted to a student’s mother (guest star Erinn Hayes) at a parent-teacher conference, he feigns interest in her son, Colin (Tucker Albrizzi). A group of parents complain to Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt) when they notice a piece of controversial student art from Mary’s (Mary Sohn) class. Lisa Loeb also guest stars.
So our A.P. Bio “revaps” (recaps/reviews) are going to cover both the nitty and the gritty of the episode, along with some of our thoughts on what worked and what should’ve been left unseen by sane eyes. So I guess what we’re trying to say is that you’re wading into a potential “spoiler minefield”, so tread carefully.
You can check out our recap/review of A.P. Bio Episode 5: ‘Dating Toledoans’ here.
In a look back at last week’s episode ‘Dating Toledoans’, the tension between Principal Durbin (Oswalt) and Helen (Paula Pell) over the morning announcements comes to a head in true “telenovela” style in the following clip:
A little advice to Victor (Jacob Houston) moving forward? Might not want to be so open and honest with Jack (Howerton) – as this clip shows from last week’s episode:
Here’s a “first look” at this season of A.P. Bio, as well as an overview of the series:
When disgraced Harvard philosophy scholar Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton) loses out on his dream job, he is forced to return to Toledo, Ohio, and work as a high school Advanced Placement biology teacher. As he comes crashing in to Whitlock High School, Jack makes it absolutely clear he will not be teaching any biology. Realizing he has a room full of honor roll students at his disposal, Jack decides instead to use the kids for his own benefit. Eager to prove that he is still king of the castle, Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt) struggles to control the force of nature that is Jack Griffin.
NBC’s A.P. Bio also stars Mary Sohn, Lyric Lewis, Jean Villepique, Jacob McCarthy, Tom Bennett, Aparna Brielle and Paula Pell; and written by Mike O’Brien, who also serves as executive producer alongside Lorne Michaels, Seth Meyers, Andrew Singer and Mike Shoemaker.
