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. After last week’s “fall from grace” (it happens), here’s hoping tonight’s ninth episode ‘Rosemary’s Boyfriend’ gets the series back on track…and how can you go wrong with Mr. Keaton from Family Ties, right?
But first, here’s a highlight from and overview of tonight’s episode:
A.P. Bio s01e09 ‘Rosemary’s Boyfriend’: Jack (Glenn Howerton) is incensed when his dead mom’s former lover (guest star Michael Gross) shows up and suggests they commemorate her birthday. Jack taps his students to help him retaliate, but the students’ hands are already full – of crying robot babies. Stef’s (Lyric Lewis) kindness toward Dale (guest star Ron Funches) the janitor sends the wrong signals.
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.

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. Universal Television, Broadway Video and Sethmaker Shoemeyers are producing.
