What Is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment means the various forms of amusement, enjoyment, relaxation, and recreation. These may include listening to music or attending concerts, watching movies and television, reading novels, poetry, or short stories, playing sports or video games, visiting museums or art galleries, and creating or appreciating visual arts.

The entertainment industry has a remarkable capacity to cross over different media and to adapt, retain, and recycle themes and images, resulting in the longevity and familiarity of many entertainment genres. This ability reflects the fact that entertainment is often designed to hit on deep, fundamental emotions such as murder, backstabbing, and other issues that humans were evolved to respond to deeply.
