What is Entertaiment?


Entertainment is a form of activity that holds the interest and attention of an audience or gives pleasure and delight. It may be an idea or a task but is more likely to be one of the activities that have developed over thousands of years specifically for this purpose.

Entertainment stimulates the brain to realease seratonin and dopamine, it hits on points that the human mind was evolved to understand and react deeply too eg social backstabbing, murders etc. Entertaiment allows us to get away from the everyday grind and unwind.

According to Bates and Ferri (2010), entertainment is understood objectively, communicates between text and audience from an external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience to exist and occurs in a passive form.
