What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is the collection of activities that entertain people. These activities include movies, television shows, music, books, games and sports. Entertainment is often meant to be funny or awe inspiring, but it can also be a way of reliving experiences and memories. It is often psychologically stimulating, hitting on the points that the human brain was evolved to react deeply to, like social backstabbing, murder and other themes in our social world. Entertainment is often shared and can be adapted to a range of audiences and environments.
