For the weekend of Feb. 3, Streamline recommends the NBC show “A.P. Bio” in the top Hulu spot for the first time.
The show stars Glenn Howerton of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” as a high school teacher who thinks he’s better than that job. Comedian Patton Oswalt plays the principal.
Former “Saturday Night Live” writer Mike O’Brien co-created this show along with Seth Meyers and Lorne Michaels. O’Brien’s “SNL” sketches were often the most inventive bits on the show and it was a shame when he left in 2016.
With so many talented comedic minds involved with “A.P. Bio,” this new project is certainly a bit of a letdown. The show seems to want to have it all in being a comedy with wide-appeal while also reaching fans of more strange and creative comedy.
Still, it’d be a good bet to expect this show to find its footing and the first episode is still strong enough to recommend.
