The latest new NBC comedy A.P Bio premiered last week and even though the pilot episode had it’s moments, it didn’t stand with the other two episodes.
The “Pilot: Catfish” episode had funny moments but it was predictable at times. From the student who pissed at another student’s home because the teacher did that same thing at a hospital. Eventually, even though Jack Griffin doesn’t want to teach to his student, he did anyway. But even though it was predictable, it still had me wanting to tune in.
With two episodes being available online to view, “Teacher Jail” and “Burning Miles” literally were the best so far. There were so many moments of laughter and unpredictable. The cast really comes alive in these episodes, mostly Glenn Howerton, Patton Oswalt and Aparna Brielle. But the one that stands out the most is Allisyn Ashley Arm, who plays the low talker, nervous student Heather, who at times pulls off some of the funniest scenes.
So far, I enjoy A.P. Bio. Even though the Jack doesn’t want to teach the students anything but get even with his enemies, he will teach a student or students a lesson that doesn’t really come from the biology book. The cast is an A. The show does show it’s teeth in its second and third episode of the first season and you can watch online or wait til they get broadcast on Feb. 25th and March 1 with another new episode airing that night too.
So far I give A.P. Bio 8/10.
You can catch A.P. Bio Thursdays at 9:30/8:30c on NBC or catch all three episodes now at NBC.com.
