    Non Triggering TV/Movies

    Anyone got any light weight TV/ Movies they'd recommend? For me I avoid romance/ trauma content. Which can be hard as everything is written that way, Let me know what you've found that you enjoy. x For 'safe' TV I love Bob's Burgers, Golden Girls (though it does contain romance).
