Everybody’s talking about… High Maintenance

Vimeo original show High Maintenance has just premiered its second season. It’s about a weed delivery man called Sinclair, and his array of clients. You can watch the 13 old episodes for free, and pay €1.49 to watch each new one. It’s worth it; they’re short, accomplished and original.
