Stick the kettle on, OSN's January offering makes a very strong case for not leaving the house...

Having a low-key Jan? Here's everything you need to watch
The Good Place season three is on OSN every Monday at 8pm

If you're anything like us, you're currently pretty chuffed with your perma-dent in the sofa, and even more smug at being the go-to person all your mates are asking for series recommendations. After all, you know what they say... a Christmas well spent brings a year of telling your friends exactly what they should be watching, even when they haven't asked.

Anyway, just when you thought it might be safe to actually - y'know - leave the flat and speak to actual humans, OSN goes and drops its January listings and every vague hope of socialising again turns to dust. Oh well. 

Here's what we're most excited to cancel real life in favour of, in no particular order...

Luther, Season 5 - Tuesdays

For the purposes of great telly only, we love seeing this grim, grisly and very grey side to London town - and we're very happy to see Idris Elba gadding about in it, solving crimes and being dashing in his tailored tweed overcoat. It's not quite Sherlock in his Barbour, but we'll take it. 

The Good Place, Season 3 - Mondays, 8pm

Ted Danson's teeth, a brilliant turn from TV-presenter-turned-body-positivity-crusader Jameela Jamil and a fluffy yet highly amusing premise makes this show the easy-viewing equivalent of a hug. Perfect Monday night sofa fodder.

Les Misérables - Sundays, 8pm

The BBC's bangers keep on coming (we're looking at you, Line of Duty), and, and such, we're pretty convinced that this new six-parter starring no less than Dominic West (The Affair, The Wire), David Oyelowo (Selma, A United Kingdom), Lily Collins (To The Bone, The Blind Side) and Olivia Colman (The Night Manager, The Crown, and our personal favourite... Peep Show), is going to live up to the hype... and Victor Hugo's iconic novel, obviously.

Suits, Season 8 - Mondays 6pm

Fine, you might have to rush home from work for this one, but surely it's worth it to catch Donna's clapbacks, Harvey's swag and Louis' general tomfoolery. Yeah, Meghan Markle might not be gracing the series with her presence any longer (something about being a bit busy...?) but if we're honest, it's not her we miss the most anyway. It's Jessica and her banging Roland Mouret-filled wardrobe.

True Detective, Season 3 - Mondays, 10pm

While we struggle to imagine a better crime-fighting pair than McConaughey and Harrelson from season one, the duo are still behind the lens as Executive Producers for this return starring Moonlight and House of Cards actor (and Oscar winner, casual), Mahershala Ali. Another day, another detective anthology series for us to get our teeth into. And we don't mind one bit. Pass the popcorn.
