A.P. Bio also features a cast of Lyric Lewis, Mary Sohn, Jean Villepique, Paula Pell, and Patton Oswalt.

Plot edit

When disgraced Harvard philosophy professor Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton) loses his dream job to his rival Miles Leonard (Tom Bennett), he is forced to return to his hometown of Toledo, Ohio, to work as an advanced placement biology teacher at Whitlock High School and live in his late mother's home. He makes it clear to his class that he will not be teaching them any biology. Realizing he has a room full of honor-roll students at his disposal, he decides to use them to get revenge on Miles. Eager to prove that he is still king of the castle, Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt) struggles to keep Jack under control. In the second season, Jack uses his students to find out how the people of Toledo find happiness in their daily lives, to gather information for what he believes will be a bestselling book.

The first season holds a score of 66% with an average rating of 6.34/10 on the review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, based on 32 reviews. The site's critical consensus states, "A.P. Bio has some genuine laughs, but audiences have already seen plenty of authority figures behaving badly—and have a right to expect more from this promising premise and talented cast."[46] Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the series a score of 59 out of 100 based on 17 critics.[47]

Writing in The Hollywood Reporter, Daniel Fienberg commented that A.P. Bio had a good cast and "the only thing holding it back is the small quibble that it's not actually all that funny."[48] Margaret Lyons of The New York Times called A.P. Bio "an abrasive sitcom that isn't merely unfunny, it's also deeply unpleasant."[49] Jen Chaney of Vulture said the series had bright spots but was "conceptually played-out" overall.[50]
