Community lovers are fans of great dialogue, clever scenarios and unique characters, so it makes sense that we were all t-h-r-i-l-l-e-d to see Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan on the latest episode!

Vince is definitely known for bringing intense and odd characters to the small screen, and he did not disappoint. He showed up with an offbeat performance the host of a vintage VCR game with a western theme and no seemingly distinguishable rules. The truly standout performance, however, was Anthony, played by a crew member. Adorned with a long and flowing black beard, Anthony is a pessimist with a deadpan sense of humor... the exact opposite of his sister, Annie.

His best line of the night came at the dinner table when he asked Abed's (Danny Pudi) girlfriend, Rachel, "Do you know what happens when you die?" "No," she flatly responded. "You're lucky," Anthony mumbled. And that pretty much sums up his character in all his glory.

The episode revolved heavily around Annie and Abed's battle to choose a third roommate. Abed vouches for Rachel while Annie tries to push Anthony. When the candidates finally figure out what's going on, they both get offended, and Anthony wants no part of it, thus ending his cameo. But we can cross our fingers and pray to the comedy gods that he'll grace us with another appearance in the future.

Until then, we still have the other Breaking Bad alumni to look forward to every week. Jonathan Banks, who plays Buzz Hickey, will continue to humor us with his intimidating performances. He doesn't exactly make us LOL, but he is entertaining as always.
