A type of entertainment that is full of spectacle with no real substance.
'Sugartainment' includes television, films, music, videogames and theatre. While it may be full of bright colours, humor, explosions or catchy songs, the main component of this medium is its ability to be at the same time both critically bad and thoroughly entertaining. Typically sugartainment will involve very little mental exercise.
Some personal examples of sugartainment would be Knight Rider, Spongebob Squarepants, and Super Sentai. It would also include many Hollywood blockbusters.
"As the housemates dragged themselves back into the world of the living and collapsed on the sofa, they switched on the TV. Early morning cartoons were the perfect sugartainment to take their minds away from the throbbing hangover."
