A mistake has been brought to my attention regarding the aspergers situation for Brennan :) Thank you for clearing it up!
"On a recent post about Brennan having Asperger’s, you noted that Hart said she didn’t have it but that Zach did. That is partially correct. Hart said that they wrote Brennan as having it, but then decided a few years later to lose that aspect of her. Here is a quote of his from a few years ago: “Bones” creator Hart Hanson says he based Brennan in part on an Aspie friend, but the needs of a broadcast network like Fox to get as large an audience as possible meant he couldn’t come out and say that.“If we were on cable, we would have said from the beginning that Brennan has Asperger’s,” Hanson says. “Instead, it being a network, we decided not to label a main character, for good or for bad. But those elements are in there.” And the source of it:http://www.nj.com/entertainment/tv/index.ssf/2010/02/how_tv_shows_try_or_choose_not.html ”
