  • He’s getting some pretty good guest starring gigs. I like him as an actor, so it’s always great to see him.

  • Every time I see updates about all the great casting decisions and awesome episode concepts Community has developed, I feel a very strong urge to raid NBC headquarters with paintballs. LOTS of paintballs.

    • That episodes has already aired long a time ago. It’s your own fault if you haven’t seen it yet.

    • My God Tim, that episode of Breaking Bad was MONTHS ago. Why haven’t you watched it yet? And if you have such an adversion to spoilers, why do you come on sites like this?

  • I hope they’ll include some Breaking Bad references. If I remember correctly, Starburns and Troy already made two this season.
