My thoughts… Mad Maxine chronicles the ongoing struggles of Maxine Justice, a disgruntled office worker. I know Maxine. I work with her right now! Well, she’s a dude, actually, but he’s just like her! I’ve known someone like Maxine at every job I’ve ever had! Alina Andrei is hysterical [and adorable!] as Maxine. However, I think Andrei and Lewis missed the chance to take this web series toward a more satisfying conclusion, especially since Maxine’s last name is Justice… As word gets around the office about Maxine’s justice, other put-upon co-workers come to her for help with their “problems”! Soon, even her bosses begin to fear her! Think The Equalizer meets Office Space!
