To My Fellow 'Leverage' Fans

I admit, I didn't pay attention to details in the early episodes of Leverage as the show found it's footing and I'm sure I missed some things, but was there ever a mention that Parker has "a mild form of Asperger's syndrome"? I was watching this behind the scenes video on YouTube and was surprised when I heard Dean Devlin (the executive producer and director) mention it. I'm tempted to tweet him about it, but, before I embarrass myself, I thought I'd see if anyone recalls this being addressed in the series. It certainly explains some things beyond her just being odd and crazy.

I don't remember it ever being mentioned, but I'd wondered if that was the case. Of course I also thought Rodney McKay on SGA had Aspergers.
Hmm, yeah, I could see that about Rodney too. I tweeted Dean Devlin. Maybe he'll respond and can clarify.
I also don't remember it being mentioned and since I saw the first episodes after the rest of the episodes I think such a detail would have jumped out at me.
Good to know. :) I tweeted Dean Devlin to see if I could get anymore information. If Parker does have Aspergers I think it's important to address it, at least once, on the show.
