I remember that Brody had a thing for her and i didn't think that it was so weird or sick. He genuinely liked her but it was always platonic and cute he never crossed the line IMO. I don't see them as a possible couple....more like friends. My impression is that he liked her because she's pretty and sunny.. she's an optimistic person while he isn't like that especially considering his problems with the alien abductions and his daughter. Sometimes people are attracted to a person who is their opposite or the way they'd love to be themselves.
Maybe he looks older than his age but who knows maybe he has Jesse's age (i don't remember if it was ever said) or slightly older.
Okay I checked on it and the guy who played Brody was 28 when he was on the show.I don't know if he was supposed to be the same age on the show.I think it's fine for someone in highschool to have a 'crush' on someone around that age.....but in no way is it alright for any one of them to act on it until everyone is eighteen or over.Not that I think Brody had those feelings for Maria.
I do agree with you that I think Brody was drawn to Maria's sunny ways due to everything in his life at the moment being dark and sad.
