Confused hulking homeless superhero The Maxx tries to protect his social worker and friend Julie from an omniscient serial killer Mr. Gone both in the real world, which may or may not actually be real, and the subconscious fantasy world.
There has not been a television show like this one; even the animation has a very identifiable quality that lets you know that you have not seen a series quite like it.
I would have to agree with some of the show's critics that say that the characters are pretentious, and quite simply not very likable, but the tone of each episode revolves around an outsider that is simply trying to fit in to a new environment- which is something that even the most jaded critic must admit he can identify with.
Because the series is still in its infant stage, the viewers need time to get used to the dark humour and far-fetched characters; Allen's love for his new principal is a perfect example of this. If people could just accept this as an aspect of the bizarrely funny tone of the show, they would see it as an innovative exaggeration of every strange attraction that they've ever felt.
People will accept and love this series in time, and even if the show is quickly cancelled it will endure with cult following, just like 'Freaks and Geeks' has done after only managing to stay on the air for a single season.
