Entertaiment is a complex, multifaceted universe that offers something to every interest and emotional state. It ranges from lighthearted and fun, as in a circus or children’s cartoon show, to serious or thought-provoking, as in a documentary or a sophisticated drama. Moreover, it can be experienced on any scale: from an individual who chooses to amuse himself by watching a movie or playing a video game; to a family or group of people at a dinner party, or to thousands at a stadium event.
