Entertaiment is a word that refers to activities that hold the attention and interest of an audience or give pleasure and delight. It comes from the Medieval Latin intertenere, which combines the prefix inter meaning “inside” with the Latin suffix tenere, derived from the Indo-European root ten meaning to stretch or hold.
Entertainment is a good way to keep family and friends closer together. It also helps stimulate the brain to realease seratonin, dopamine and other chemicals that are good for us. It often hits on the points that our minds were evolved to react deeply to, such as murders and social backstabbing in order to understand our world better.
