The Glenn Howerton NBC comedy doesn't feel like a show of the moment. However, says Ben Travers, "comedies don’t have to take on socio-political issues or mix in a deeply dramatic episode every third week, just like they don’t have to reinvent the wheel or maintain a perfect P.C. image. Some of NBC’s best comedies over the years have been built around a simple premise disconnected from the time they were made. That’s why Cheers, Friends, and Seinfeld still thrive in reruns — they’re timeless, and A.P. Bio, with its school setting and familiar archetypes, offers the same classic potential."
