Watching TV is the most popular leisure activity now

Jeremy Paxman's strong views have made headlines again. Paxo this weekend called the public a "bunch of barbarians" for watching too much TV.

Guardian
"I think the basic problem is that we are a bunch of barbarians really," he said at the Guardian Hay festival.

"Watching TV is the most popular leisure activity in this country now. I find this very depressing."

He called for people to visit more art galleries instead. Let's just hope they are safely in front of the box when Newsnight or University Challenge are on, eh Paxo?

Watching TV is a good way to wind down as long as I don't have to watch "Britain's Got Talent or The X Factor"!
My other way to wind down is to thrash out Buddy Rich's version of "West Side Story" on my old drum kit.. Helps me work up a sweat too!
