I’d like to share some of my thoughts on the topic.
When I was a little, I had no chance to watch any TV programs because I was the only child who had no TV at home in my class; hence,
spending time on watching TV was not something that would give me a joyful time. The reason that we had no TV at home was simple, my
parents wanted to have more time to talk with their kids during dinner time or any other free time we spent in a living room, but not use it as a tool
to babysit us.
Because of such background during my childhood, I see the term entertainment in more variety ways. For instance, observing small changes in nature
while working on a project inspires me a lot, and amuses me as well.
I know there are some well-made TV program in my country, but I rarely watch them because I need to devote a great deal of my free time to study English and French.
So answering your question, I can live without TV, but I found that TV programs in my target languages contain invaluable information; therefore, I cannot live without it. In deed, I enjoy watching some YouTube channels and Netflix for a pure pleasure (in English).
As for the entertainment, if there were nothing to entertain us, we would be hugely depressed and hardly survive such harsh life. Remember the time we are/were under quarantine, people need a fun moment, and again, I personally can’t stop watching Big Bang Theory and Gilmore Girls.
