High Maintenance Season 2, Episode 1 : Globo

High Maintenance returned a couple weeks ago (I guess) and I caught up last night. The first episode brought me to tears. It felt like the first piece of work I have seen that captures a cultural moment without defining the proverbial cultural moment. Something bad happens. You never know what it is but we all know what it is. It is the 2016 Election, Sandy Hook, Ferguson, San Bernardino, Orlando, et. al. The episode opens door after door on different people experiencing this day in various ways. It is quintessentially New York. People all over the spectrum living their lives when a tragedy occurs and just dealing with it. The last scene left me with a great sense of hope.
