The latest Sky adaptation, this time of Sir Terry Pratchett's 'Going Postal', is one of the most fun. It captures the essense of the book perfectly - it certainly helps that Sky has a big budget.
At times this show looked like a movie, but it was much slower paced than one. I would have preferred the show to have got to the point a little quicker and feel it was extended specifically to fill two hours, but overall it was fantastic.
The acting was another high point and I think all parts were portrayed incredibly well - gust starring Sir Terry Pratchett at the end (as a postman) was a lovely touch and shows that he too thought this was a worthy adaptation.
