Returning to the documentary series that follows the story of R. Kelly, a well known singer, who achieves a great success in his life as a singer, but when a group of women unite and accuse him of abusing them, his life turns upside down, as through this series, interviews with those women. In this new season, Tiffany Hawkins, finally, goes out and tells her story on camera.
Is it hard to watch? Absolutely. But it's also riveting and cathartic, especially since Kelly is being prosecuted. "Surviving R. Kelly Part II: The Reckoning" continues to press for justice and give voice to credible accusers and witnesses.
The original documentary, however, arrived somewhat under the radar, whereas an acute sense of that significance seemingly weighs on the sequel, in a way that, strictly from a TV standpoint, blunts its impact.
