*** Because the second series just isn't as good as the first. When you're throwing everything - including the kitchen sink - into the plot, you're bound to forget some important things.

** Generally speaking, male faces (and voices) change more through puberty than females, so it's possibly that. Or it might have simply been attitude. Zack presented himself as a cringing lackey when he first showed up in that episode, while Jace didn't.

* The whole breeding partner thing in the first episode of Season 2 makes no sense. Manticore could easily have extracted sperm and eggs from the X5s and combined them into embryos that would then be implanted in surrogate mothers; there was no need whatsoever to make the X5s have sex with each other and render the females unsuitable for combat due to pregnancy. The only semi-reasonable explanation I come up with is that after the destruction of the DNA Lab, Manticore's sponsors withdrew so much of the funding that Manticore can no longer afford to hire surrogates. And that still feels like a stretch.

***I don't know exactly what the mechanism is, but if you google tryptophan and seizures then you can see that there is some scientific basis for it, which surprised me given the loose treatment of science.

* Why doesn't Max tell her friends that she has a neurological disorder requiring tryptophan supplements? Don't give me any bull about how it's "maintaining her cover"; for all they'd know it's just a disease, like diabetes or something. In the episode 'Flushed' she tells her prison buddy that she's known for all of five minutes about her problem. Why not her friends? Logan tells Original Cindy about it in the same episode, no consequences. After Max had to borrow the rent money to buy pills, why not say, when confronted, "Hey, you know that disorder I have that could kill me? I needed the money to stay alive." At the very least, she should tell her friends after they've flushed her pills so they wouldn't do it again! This episode was based on such a flimsy premise; none of the events would have happened had anyone acted with reason as their motivator instead of plot.

*** Exactly, it would be very out of character for rebellious Max to be terribly concerned about legal drinking age. As for her being able to buy drinks at Crash - it doesn't exactly look like the most reputable bar. Her buying and the bar selling are both TruthInTelevision, not an endorsement.
