Entertaiment is an activity which gives pleasure and amusement. It may involve many different things, such as watching films, television, playing video games, reading books or stories, playing sports, and creating or appreciating visual art. Other examples include attending live theater, dance performances, or comedy shows.
Many forms of entertainment have a great deal of cross-over, meaning that they are enjoyed in many different mediums and can be easily adapted to new ones. This has enabled entertainment to be very durable, as familiar themes and images can be recycled across time and media.
