So a little over a month ago, i binged to web series High Maintenance and loved it. It worked perfect in a web environment, however the translation to a sitcom format was spotty. The original had tons of heart, the series, took a few episodes to find its heart, but once it did, it was smooth sailing. You would feel terrible for certain characters, cringe at certain moments and rejoice the beauty in life. Sure, there is a lot of ugliness but finding a bond with one person, or even a pet, can mean the world. I love that it was only 6 episodes, as i feel more shows need to be between 6 and 10, but it sucks that it only had 6 as it just found itself, and i have a feeling that we might not get a season 2, it was mentioned at one point, but so was Vinyl, and those plans fell through. Regardless, this is a super charming series, and a fast watch.
