5. Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal

You’ve seen Good Omens and A Series of Unfortunate Events. Now it’s time for another adaptation of a Terry Pratchett novel. Going Postal is about Moist von Lipwig, a conman who is caught by the law and given one of two choices. He can either suffer a painful death or he has to take over a derelict post office.

Naturally, he chooses life, even if it means being bored or suffering from those who struggle to follow orders. David Suchet, Charles Dance, and Claire Goy all star in this eight-episode series. All episodes will be available at the same time for you to binge-watch.

Star streaming Going Postal on Jan. 6.
