I have been watching the Japanese TV series called "ATARU." It is about the title character, who is an autistic savant who helps a pair of detectives solve cases. For some reason, I find I really connect with the title character. I am much more on the "high functioning" end of the Autism spectrum, but I still find parallels to my own life. I'm so glad there is a hero character out there who has Autism!
Also, believe it or not, Star Trek has really influences me. Again, this is due to a strong character with similar personality traits to my own: Mr. Spock. I feel that Spock is very similar to people with Asperger's syndrome, and, again, it is awesome to have a hero character like that to look up to.
