It was so good, I watched it because I'm a true crime buff, but it was more than just a thrilling true crime story.

The stories are quite compelling and any reasonable person would conclude that R.

Kelly is a riveting documentary that displays facts and offers both sides of the equation without trying to manipulate viewers, interviewing many of the abused girls, women and their families while exposing a plethora of testimonies and video footage showing concerned parents trying to rescue their daughters.

My only issue with this series was how repetitive it is.

A lot of it was repetitive.

Hard pass this is boring and repetitive.

And I can safely say that after watching every minute of this riveting series, I am truly convinced that R Kelly deserves to be in jail for the rest of his life.

The combination of strength, fear, anger, and more emotions on the faces of everyone (especially the ladies--cheers to your courage) is gripping.

In this they muddled the stories between episodes, and they were told incomplete and disjointed, with nothing linking them, which is a shame, because they deserved better.
