When we were in California over the holidays, I stumbled across the web series High Maintenance, a series of short films about different people who order pot from the same guy. “While the premise may sound goofy (not to mention potentially alienating for those who don’t partake),” says the New Yorker, “the execution is flawless.” What I loved about it: The show captures certain types of New Yorkers so precisely; I kept forgetting they were actors. It was hilarious and compelling. I ended up binge-watching all of them within 24 hours, sneaking episodes while the boys were napping.
I’d highly recommend it. See them all here.
