High Maintenance: stoner clichés wasted in marijuana web show

MARIJUANA. Let’s just legalise it. Not glamourise it.

A nameless cannabis delivery guy delivers his much needed medication to stressed-out New Yorkers in this character-driven web series. High Maintenance was created by husband and wife team Ben Sinclair and Katja Blichfeld. They produce the series with their BFF Russell Gregory as Janky Clown Productions.

Luke Kelly-Clyne  praises  an awesome new web series:

Created and written by husband and wife team Ben Sinclair and Katja Blichfeld, executive produced by them and Sinclair’s manager, Russell Gregory, and brought to life by a stellar cast and crew, High Maintenancefollows a cycling weed man as he makes his deliveries to different New Yorkers in their native habitats. Nuanced in its voyeurism and deft in its subtle comedic breaks, this is more than a funny show. It’s honest and true, unapologetically and consistently straight with no regard for Internet video conventions or goofy stoner genre norms.

Elke Cooling agrees :

It is a series that works less about the plot, but rather about the characters. One example are the stressed-out career woman, the young party-pair and two alleged homosexual women who stand beside the expensive Chilean wine in the cupboard a framed Occupy posters and hear Bon Iver from the Macbook. Whoever thought typical hipster stereotypes, has only partially right. For behind the first impressions hide clever dialogues and details, the High Maintenance make witty, without having to fall with the humor through the door.
