Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton) is a Harvard philosophy scholar who loses out on his dream job and goes to work as a high school Advanced Placement biology teacher in his hometown of Toledo, Ohio. He quickly makes it clear he will not be teaching any biology, however, and, realizing he has a room full of overachieving honor roll students at his disposal, decides instead to use the kids to enact revenge on his rival and take the job that is rightfully his. Eager to prove that he is still king of the castle, Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt) struggles to control the force of nature that is Jack Griffin.

Give it a chance! Glenn Howerton as Jack Griffin it's like the ultimate cocktailed Dennis persona from ALL *IASIP* seasons! Meaning: it's the early seasoned "Normal" Narcissistic Dennis who would try to capitalize on schemes and laugh a Dee being called a Bird MIXED WITH the Later seasoned Sociopath Dennis who use a boats "Implication" on girls
