My DD was recently diagnosed with Aspergers and SPD. My DH and I watch the show House MD every week. This season, a new character was introduced. Her name is Martha Masters, she's a quirky socially awkward brainiac who's HUGE on honesty and doing what's morally right. Before we even suspected Asperger's, my DH had commented on how he felt like the character was our DD in the future. I agreed- I could totally see that.
My DD was diagnosed with Asperger's about a week ago, and tonight after watching the show I googled "Martha Masters Aspergers" and got a ton of results. Apparently many people see her the same way (as does the actress that portrays her!).
I just thought it was neat to see an Aspie on TV. We're light on television here, with the exception of that, so I don't know if Asperger's is a common thing to see on TV, but like I said, I thought it was neat.
