A.P. Bio was unfortunately canceled at NBC after two stellar seasons of quirky high school comedy. But the series, created by former Saturday Night Live writer/cast member Mike O’Brien and led by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Glenn Howerton, found a second life. The NBCUniversal streaming service Peacock picked it up for a third season that came and went earlier this year. Since there hasn’t been much pomp and ceremony for the new season, I was left worried that the show would inevitably get canceled again. Thankfully, an early Christmas gift just arrived with the announcement of A.P. Bio season 4 coming in 2021. Read More »
Joe Manganiello is built like a comic book character. He’s played one before, popping up very briefly as Deathstroke in the post-credits scene of Justice League – a tease which, through no fault of his, will likely never pay off. Now he’s toying with the superhero genre again in Archenemy, a new film in which he plays an alcoholic and homeless character who may or may not be a hero from another dimension.
Oh yeah, and his character’s name is “Max Fist.” Amazing.
Check out the trailer for the film below, which reminds me of what might happen if Hancock was mixed with Taxi Driver. Read More »
The third season of the NBC comedy series A.P. Bio is shifting to Peacock this month. Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) stars in the series as disgraced Harvard philosophy professor-turned-high school A.P. biology teacher Jack Griffin. Throughout the series so far, he has been coming up with schemes on how to further his career and using his students to help him, all while avoiding any lessons about biology. But his class is getting interrupted with a new student in the form of the high school secretary Helen DeMarcus (Paula Pell), and a new A.P. Bio season 3 clip shows how troublesome this could be.

In just two short 13-episode seasons, the NBC comedy series A.P. Bio was already showing promising signs of evolution. The series started out focusing on disgraced Harvard philosophy professor Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton), who missed out on his dream job and was forced to return to his hometown of Toledo, Ohio and work as an advanced placement biology high school teacher. But instead of teaching his gifted, oddball students, he uses them to get revenge on the rival who took his job.
The second season found Jack getting a little more caught up in the small town antics of Whitlock High School. Though he was still focused on schemes that would benefit his career and get him back out of Toledo, he was constantly distracted by getting revenge on those who wronged him, no matter how petty the offense. The show lost a lot of the sociopathic edge of the first season, but it opened the door for some more bizarre comedy from the supporting cast and even Jack himself.
Now the third season of A.P. Bio, coming to NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock next week, takes that approach to the next level. Not only does the new season dig even more into the ensemble of students, teachers and administrators, but it delivers some of the show’s weirdest episodes yet, bringing it to a satisfyingly hilarious, almost 30 Rock-level of absurdity.

A.P. Bio started out at NBC, but the third season of the hilarious high school comedy series is coming to Peacock next month. Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) stars in the series as disgraced Harvard philosophy professor-turned-high school A.P. biology teacher Jack Griffin. Throughout the series so far, he has been coming up with schemes on how to further his career and using his students to help him, all while avoiding any lessons about biology. But as this new trailer reveals, this year will be much harder. Read More »
If you’re an Xfinity Flex customer, you can now get access to the new NBCUniversal streaming service Peacock. Otherwise, you’ll be waiting until July to feast your eyes on more than 15,000 hours of movies and TV shows. Unfortunately, a large amount of the original programming that will be available exclusively on Peacock won’t be available for awhile. But today, the streaming service teased what subscribers will get down the road with a batch of new trailers, including the return of a wrongly canceled comedy series from NBC.
A.P. Bio started off by following disgraced Harvard philosophy professor-turned-high school A.P. biology teacher Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton), showcasing the lengths he went to in order to avoid teaching biology, opting to use his smart students to get revenge on a rival professor instead. Since then, the series has shifted gears a bit as Jack is now focused on writing a book about a deep-dive into the experience of middle-class living in Toledo, Ohio. But the third season will pose a new challenge, as illustrated in the A.P. Bio season 3 teaser trailer. Read More »
Later this month, the FX comedy series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia begins a historic 14th season. It’s the second of a two-season order made in 2016 that will make the series the longest-running live-action comedy series in TV history, tied with The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet. But just because It’s Always Sunny is making TV history doesn’t mean the gang has become anymore sophisticated.
As the recently released It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 trailer shows, this fall will have plenty of nonsensical mayhem from Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson, and Danny DeVito, including a laser tag face-off, a mysterious melon, a film noir plot device, and much more insanity.

Back in May, NBC handed down the unfortunate order of cancellation to their midseason comedy series A.P. Bio. The show starred It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Glenn Howerton as a disgraced Harvard philosophy professor-turned-high school A.P. biology teacher, and tracked the lengths he went to in order to avoid teaching biology, opting to use his smart students to get revenge on a rival professor instead. The show lasted for two seasons and aired what was intended to be its final episodes last month, but thankfully, NBC has changed its mind about cancellation. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The FX comedy series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia isn’t much of a serial TV program. Each episode is mostly self-contained, and there is microscopic evidence of any continuity between episodes with the exception of some passing references to past shenanigans and a couple recurring characters who seem to get worse over time (like Rickety Cricket). Plus, the gang doesn’t really learn any real lessons from all of their despicable behavior and just keep doing more awful junk.
However, the recent 12th season finale of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia threw a couple of curveballs at longtime fans. But just in case some of you fans haven’t watched the season finale yet, we’ll leave the spoilers for after the jump. Read More »
Early next year, we return to the city of brotherly love to see what kind of shenanigans the crew of Paddy’s Pub will be up to when the 12th season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia premieres on FXX. It’s crazy to think that the series has been running this long, and it even has an order for its 13th and 14th seasons already placed. And if this new trailer for this season is an indicator, things are only going to get more out of hand.
A red-band It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 12 trailer has just popped up online, and it’s far more raunchy than anything we’ve seen from Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito. I’m talking about words that you normally don’t hear on cable channels other than HBO, Cinemax and Showtime, plus a couple of dildos, some discussion of being paid for sex and much more.
See all the madness below, but beware that the language is totally NSFW. Read More »
