‘The New York Times’ Profiles ‘High Maintenance,’ ‘Sound Advice,’ and More

By

“Using this anthology structure, the show captures a wide swath of personalities, and while they include a cross-dressing father, a self-described asexual who does magic tricks and a homeless woman who dates for shelter, High Maintenance is not predictably quirky. It’s humane, superbly acted (by many unfamiliar faces) and as blasé about eccentricity as, well, a born New Yorker. Sometimes this style can turn into a gushing love letter to the city, depicted as a benign playground for grown-ups with no serious consequences. But the visual ambition here complements this sunny mood and makes you forgive it.”

- Ben Sinclair and Katja Blichfeld’s web series High Maintenance gets some praise from The New York Times today alongside Sound Advice, Little Horribles, and Augie, Alone.
