Just How Much TV Do You Need?

Andrew Marino, writing on The Verge, is apparently taken with the RCA TV because it will allow him to watch TV on the beach. TV on the beach? I mean come on... just how much TV can a human possibly need?

I don't know where Marino is from, but for crying out loud, you're on the beach man... do some swimming, do some surfing, rent a jet ski, play some volleyball, just get out and have some fun. Don't watch the damn idiot box.

I look at sites like The Verge (and it's by no means the worst) and I'm appalled by how much of the 'news' that gets reported is about TV series or films. Is this a fair reflection of how much time the average person is spending in front of the TV?

It's a pretty poor show if it is.
