What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is something that can be consumed by the human mind. It can stimulate the brain to realease seratonin, dopamine and other chemicals. Many times it hits on points that the human mind was evolved to react deeply to such as social backstabbing and murders. It is also a way of expressing oneself.

According to Oliver and Barstsch (2010), entertainment can be defi ned by six elements; it is understood objectively, communicates between text and audience, comes from an external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience to exist, and occurs in a passive form.

Entertaiment has a very broad meaning and a wide range of applications.
