The Problem with 'Entertainment'

My problem with ‘entertainment’ lies in the propensity of the viewer to not learn how to be entertained by what is on offer, but to pay attention to that which panders to what one might already find entertaining. In that, paradoxically, one tends to make the least out of an experience to get the most out of it.

I worry when I see a form of entertainment being enjoyed by all three generations of a family. In that, I see that less might be made of the learning curve of childhood to perpetuate its mirth in adulthood.
