Entertainment is important because it often hits on themes that the human brain was evolved to deeply respond to, such as backstabbing, murders and social dynamics. This allows the mind to release seratonin and dopamine, which give us the feeling of well-being. Entertainment also allows people to escape from the hardships and troubles of the real world.
