High Maintenance (Foxtel / BINGE)
The great thing about High Maintenance is that it does away with the conventional restrictions you would associate with a modern series.

What’s more, episodes are short and punchy at only 30 minutes, meaning you’re always kept off your toes as a viewer. Read more.
