It’s understandable that a documentary about Ted Bundy will focus on Ted Bundy. But by now, thirty years after his execution, his story is not new.

With a lingering and intimate focus on its characters, from their darkest moments to their greatest highs, “High Maintenance”’s third season looks to be as profound and remarkable as its predecessors, and it’s only the beginning.
