While High Maintenance remains optimistic about our capacity to live together, it also attests to the real difficulty of overcoming the pain of loneliness. It’s a truth the show’s co-creators know well from personal experience — formerly married, Sinclair and Blichfeld divorced in late 2016, a development they unflinchingly write directly into the second season. Here for the first time, The Guy himself becomes the focus of several episodes, shedding his idealized, anything-goes image and displaying the same vulnerabilities and neuroses as his clients. He also suffers pain. In Episode 5, titled “Scromple” (The Guy’s nickname) he is injured in a bike crash and confined to a bed in a crowded emergency room with no one to care for him. His physical distress is mirrored by the emotional affliction of his ex-wife Julia, a photographer struggling to kick her weed habit and build a relationship with a new partner. Though Julia and The Guy come together for a moving moment of hazy communion in the hospital, the majority of the episode details their individual struggles with the lonely, nostalgic ache that hangs over from their divorce.
'The Last OG' 'High Maintenance,' and the Brooklyn Show in 2018 - by Theringer
Season 2 of High Maintenance’s HBO run was the first time that Blichfeld and Sinclair brought on outside writers. (Collaborators had directed a couple of early chapters of the web series, but this was also the first time Blichfeld and Sinclair outsourced behind-the-camera duties consistently.) Consequently, the tone sometimes felt noticeably off, possibly the inevitable fallout of a project so specific opening up its creative process. Some resolutions felt pat, like the collision between glammed-up club kids and Orthodox Jews that serves as the climax to “Derech,” and some scenes saccharine, like the subway car balloon toss instigated by the waiter’s son. The effect undercut the low-key naturalism that makes High Maintenance such a well-suited vehicle for empathetic storytelling in the first place, and let the show’s distance from its comfort zone show a little more clearly than it needs to.
THE REAL REEL | High Maintenance; Highly Recommended - by Popdust
How often do we see naked people on TV that are not doctored, implanted, lifted, and tucked? The bodies on this show look like the bodies at your gym… ya know…just bodies (unless you go to that gym:). These bodies seek pleasure and have sex; usually something reserved for models and artificially altered folks in the media. We see old people, butch people, large people, un-shaven people doing the nasty. I couldn't believe my own surprise at seeing real bodies seeking pleasure. How sad is it that sex in pornography is now less shocking than sex between two average character actors? I'll tell you how sad, it's 'drop-your-ice-cream-cone-on-the-floor' sad. It is now actually emotionally jarring to see an average body on television. WTF.
