Welcome back, fellow freaks, 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. In this week’s penultimate episode ‘Walleye,’, Jack’s (Howerton) “master plan” against Miles (Tom Bennett) gets really personal for Devin (Jacob McCarthy); while Durbin (Oswalt), Mary (Mary Sohn), Stef (Lyric Lewis) and Michelle (Jean Villepique) are charged with coming up with a theme for the Sadie Hawkins dance – so what could go wrong?

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.

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.
