Entertaiment is entertainment, a consumption activity that has evolved to encompass a wide range of media. It can be individualized for private pleasure, shared between two as part of a social occasion, performed in front of thousands, and broadcast globally. Even activities that were once related to hunting or war have now been developed into spectator sports.
Bates and Ferri define entertainment as an activity understood objectively, involving communication between text and audience from external stimulus, off ers pleasure, requires an audience and takes place in a passive form. Many forms of entertainment hit on themes the brain was evolved to react deeply to, like backstabbing and murders.
