Nice to have you back again for 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…and nice to have you back, A.P. Bio! Looking at the synopsis for tonight’s ‘Durbin Crashes,’ I’m hoping the show stays on course and doesn’t fall into any old The Odd Couple cliches, as we share our thoughts on the episode below.
But first, here’s a highlight from last week’s episode ‘Rosemary’s Boyfriend’; and an overview of ‘Durbin Crashes’:
A.P. Bio s01e10 ‘Durbin Crashes’: When Jack (Glenn Howerton) casually gives Durbin (Patton Oswalt) some marriage advice, it backfires, gets Durbin kicked out of the house, and Jack takes him in. The A.P. Bio kids tell Jack if they can get Miles’ (Tom Bennet) DNA, they’ll learn a little biology while pulling off the ultimate revenge. Angela Kinsey 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.

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.
