As for the word "tranny" I don't have a ton of trans friends but for what it's worth they all use the word pretty liberally. I think it's currently in a grey area. Hopefully as they get a more of a voice on the national stage they can help to establish more firmly whether it's a term of endearment or a slur.
Context also plays a big role, as with any taboo language. This particular context is dated and upsetting.

I'm not on the "I hate Burton and Depp" bandwagon but Alice in Wonderland was definitely lame. This looks a little more my speed, nice that Tim isn't taking himself so damn seriously for once. Cautiously optimistic.

Loved Shane but glad they offed him finaly. They kept him along for a lot longer than they did in the books which I didnt mind because they mostly succeeded on extrapolating his relationship with Rick. Occasional plot holes and slow episodes aside I've fallen in love with this season. Even when it's not working that well its still appropriately moody and interesting. Also for everyone who thought Darabaunt's departure was going to doom the show he had nothing to do with any episodes after the barn incident and I'd say the show's strongest episodes happened in the second half of the season.
Last episode I predict we witness the destruction ofthe farm and then meet Randal's friends, maybe with the governor as their leader. Also I bet Merle is with them.
