Set after the events in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), Sarah Connor and her son, John, try to stay under-the-radar from the government, as they plot to destroy the computer network, Skynet, in hopes of preventing Armageddon.
In a future of political, economic and moral collapse, a genetically enhanced superhuman prototype named Max escapes from military confines and dwells amidst the decadent underground street life of *Seattle* to avoid government agents who want to bring her back into the fold. Searching for others of her kind who were scattered in the aftermath of her escape, Max encounters Logan, an idealistic cyber-journalist battling repression and corruption in post-apocalypse America.

Max and Logan's odyssey leads them closer to the secret of her past, deepening and complicating their relationship in the process. Written by
The series takes place in a post apocalyptic future and the series main protagonist is called Max. An obvious nod to Mad Max (1979) and it's sequels. James Cameron had cited Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981) as one of his influences behind The Terminator (1984). See more »

Hey. It's Max, right?
[She looks at him dreamily, then realizes what she's doing and freaks out]
Normal! I need to take a personal day!
[She goes into Normal's office and he's ironing his shirt in his tank. Max is mesmorized by him and before she realizes what she's doing she tries to maul him. Original Cindy comes and pries Max off Normal and punches her in the face]
Thanks. I needed that.
Max needs a day off.
Take a week.

This isn't the best show out there, but it is pretty good. The writing is OK (if a bit predictable) and the acting passes(nothing special), but the real reason to watch is Jessica Alba. She does a superb job and I never got bored with the show, which is unusual for me.
I can't figure out why they would cancel it, it had tons of viewers, but if you are looking for more you can read several books that were written continuing the story. For those hoping it will come back you are out of luck because it has been years now since it was canceled, but i still haven't given up hope of a feature film sometime in the future.
Bottom line: If you are looking for a short entertaining show and you like Alba, this one's for you.
