    Isn't there an expression in French that describes someone who is sitting in a chair with their legs spread straight out and their back slouching, so they are almost lying in the chair and being really lazy?

    In Quebec, we have a nice expression for that:

    Il s'est évaché sur le sofa pour regarder la télévision

    il était vautré/il était avachi dans un fauteuil
    both are derogatory and refer to any couch potato's , semi-recubent position
