‘A.P. Bio’: Glenn Howerton, Patton Oswalt Reading a Bio Textbook Is the Video You Need

NBC‘s little-sitcom-that-could A.P. Bio is only two weeks away from its second-season premiere… which means we’re only two weeks away from learning what the future holds for anti-teacher extraordinaire Jack Griffin (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Glenn Howerton). With his plan to ruin Miles (Tom Bennett) having completely fallen apart after a season finale Karmic boomerang from earlier in the season (we still love you, Allisyn Ashley Arm‘s Heather!), what’s left for Jack to do to escape the clutches of Toledo, Ohio… Whitlock High… and Principal Durbin (Happy!‘s Patton Oswalt)?

The only thing he can do, of course: take a deep-dive into Toledo, Ohio culture, write a book on the experience, and not let the door hit him on the way out of town–and still, not a single lesson of Advanced Placement Biology will be taught… but that doesn’t mean there still won’t be some lessons to be learned.

But just because Jack isn’t concerned about enriching our “little gray cells” with some bio knowledge doesn’t mean Howerton and Oswalt don’t have our best interests at heart. So in their most dramatic way possible, the A.P. Bio odd couple are here to drop some knowledge on you… with extra points for Howerton’s almost Sherlockian approach:

NBC’s A.P. Bio returns for its sophomore season on Thursday, March 7 at 8:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. CT.

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 into 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.
