Criminally underseen but hugely appreciated by those who caught it, HBO’s new series High Maintenance is as effortless as they come. Using the framing device of a single weed dealer’s brief glimpse into the strange lives of his clients, the show is both experimental in its structure and off-the-bat enthralling.

It’s the ultimate fly-on-the-wall story (stories, I should say) that not only feels different and exciting for its oddities, but smartly and shockingly poignant for its end-of-the-day takeaways from a group of diverse, happy, depressed, triumphant, and lonely people who just want a little weed.

Experimental, surprising, and abruptly poignant in ways you would never see coming, High Maintenance‘s effortless execution – one full of intensely relatable, transient New Yorkers – is the stuff that year-end lists are made of and cements its status as must-watch television.
