‘A.P. Bio’ Season 2, Episode 5 “J’Accuse”: For Jack and His Students, The Game’s Afoot! [PREVIEW]

Since NBC‘s A.P. Bio opened the doors on its sophomore year last month, anti-teacher extraordinaire Jack Griffin (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Glenn Howerton) has set his sights on the fame and fortune that comes from a marketable, best-selling “philosophy.” Jack’s put together a “Plan B” to escape the clutches of Toledo, Ohio…Whitlock High… and Principal Durbin (Happy!‘s Patton Oswalt).

His plan? Take a deep-dive into Toledo, Ohio culture, derive a theory on “happiness” the masses will love, write a book on the experience, and not let the door (or pretty much anything else – Jack can be very punchable sometimes) 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.

In this week’s episode for “J’Accuse,” Jack decides to use the occasion of Michelle’s annual murder mystery soiree to score some major bonus points with Lynette – where things get a little out of hand pretty quickly. Meanwhile, Jack’s students are forced to commite an act out of total desperation: pilfering the Advanced Placement Biology practice exams.

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.
