    My angelic friend: Thank you so much for this!!!🙏
    I have always been a sci fi fantasy fan but completely lost my tolerance for dark and disturbing shows years ago… or anything that gets a little too weird/emotional/intense- literally cannot tolerate anything these days. so hard to find anything to watch other than straight up comedy and kids shows (both of which I do love too)
    I would also love to mention a couple of shows I was able to watch that may have pushed me a little but are overall amazing.
    the show Limitless: i didn’t think I would like it but it has a lighthearted feel and I found myself able to really enjoy it . There is even an episode where the main character goes to a crime scene and he can’t handle it so his mind makes up cute words to replace the bad ones… so he’s saying words like snuggle… it’s adorable. I don’t love the heavy drug theme but somehow it’s handled in a light way- the drug gives you superpowers so the fantasy element makes it less creepy.
    Also Lately Mandalorian has been ok for me- baby Yoda makes everything happy and fun. More of a fun space western- So far doesn’t focus on the “dark side” and psychological angst, like all the latest Star Wars movies which I can’t handle.
    Legend of the seeker is also great fantasy, even though some themes / parts are dark, it has humor and a lighthearted and almost Xena-like cheesy flair that makes it ok, and it doesn’t linger too much on the heavy stuff. Lots of romance and magical shenanigans and Has a happy ending. It’s my favorite fantasy series.
    Please write more about uplifting shows and movies!
