After watching this season, I can find no reason why they cancelled this excellent show. Second season is pretty much a completely different show from first season, but it is still awesome.
Second Season focuses more on Manticore and the Mutants whereas first season was more about Max finding her brothers and sisters. I prefer first season myself, but I still love second season. Bling and Herbal are no longer in this season and their absences arent ever explained. But there are four new characters in this season. Jensen Ackles plays Alec, a twin of Ben from season 1 of this show. He was really a great addition to the show. He brought a lot of comedy to the show and a lot of drama at the beginning of the season. Ashley Scott plays Asha, a character I didnt care for too much only because I really like Max(Jessica Alba) and Logan(Michael Weatherly) together and she was only in the show to try to tear them apart. Scott even says so in the special features in Max:Ressurected. Kevin Durand plays Joshua, the first creation of Manticore with canine DNA. Joshua made the show more about science fiction. So if you like that, you'd like him. Martin Cummings plays Ames White who kind of takes over Lydecker's(John Savage) role as the bad guy. Although I hate him more than I ever hated Lydecker. Just watch Dawg Day Afternoon and you'll know why.
Some of the best episodes of this season are Designate This, Fughettaboutit, She Aint Heavy and Freak Nation.
The special features aren't as great as the first season. For one, there isnt any commentary by Jessica Alba and Michael Weatherly which was extrememly funny and interesting for And Jesus Brought a Casserole in first season. Also the bloopers werent as funny and were only about half as long. Of the three featurrettes, only Max:Resurrected was interesting. It was about 15 minutes long.
