ACCA Series Review

Overview: ACCA tells the story of Jean Otus, an inspector who travels the 13 districts of the Kingdom of Dowa, who is about to get drawn into a whole lot of political intrigue. With rumours of a coup gathering momentum, what will Jean do? Probably smoke a cigarette. I reviewed ACCA week to week so … Continue reading ACCA Series Review

ACCA Episode 12

Review: While I suspect not all will be thrilled with the way this resolved, for me it was the perfect way to end this story. At all times, things have been pretty laid back and resolved without much in the way of violence, and for the coup to end the way it did works perfectly … Continue reading ACCA Episode 12

ACCA Episode 11

Review: ACCA has been a great watch and while part of me wondered if the final episodes could deliver after the last of the mysteries seemed revealed, episode 11 answers the question with a resounding 'yes'. Everything about this episode worked and continues to tie the plot together while continuing to give us highly nuanced … Continue reading ACCA Episode 11

ACCA Episode 8

Though in addition to that … Continue reading ACCA Episode 6

ACCA Episode 5

Review: This show is fascinating. Okay, the food obsession continues with the various people watching Lotta continually being distracted by eating, which is just kind of amusing but is hiding the more important question of whether or not the Prince's infatuation with Lotta is actually of any significance or whether it is just one more … Continue reading ACCA Episode 5

ACCA Episode 3

Review: Not going to lie, at three episodes in this show is definitely impressive. It impresses me how much information it can reveal about situations while saying almost nothing but leaving the potential meanings hanging for you to slot into place with previous ideas. It impresses how it can make you question everything anyone says … Continue reading ACCA Episode 3
