    She seems like a robot. No soul, no personality. Is it the actress or the character?

    TV Guide: Here's an interview with Marley Shelton who plays Rachel Young.

    In the 1st ep Rachel tells Jacob something to the effect that she's not going to let him get to her like he's done the ones before her, so I think she's playing it hard & straight to keep him & his eccentricities from driving her 'nuts'. I guess one of them has to have their back covered - which means being 'on the job' 24/7. In the British version her character seemed looser - more human - & more in touch with Jacob.

    She needs to be everythig Hood is not, so I guess she has to be robotic, he's the absentminded professor

    and as robotic as she is, I wouldn't mind having her be my bodyguard, he he he

    I love the female bodyguard. It`s nice to see a strong ass kicking female character.

    Over all i actually like her a lot . It seems to me that she is only protecting herslef. Maybe something happened to her in the past. and i feel like she is much more human now then in the first episode. I really looking forward to see what happens with her later on

    To me this "robotness" (i know, it's not even a word...) fits the job! Have you ever seen bodyguards? I could imagine, as a woman, you might try to appear even tougher, so that people take you seriously.
    I like her!

    The idea of the body gaurd tough girl is good. The actress and the execution of the character suck. They should get rid of Rachel in altogether and bring in another agent.

    I think she is loosening up as the series continues, or at least she has moments of her human side showing through but her mind is always on the job. It seems that when its just her and Hood she relaxes but when they are in public or around other people her gaurd goes right back up!

    At some stage this season i think they will have an episode that is personal for Rachel and show us much more of her softer side and when Hood solves a case that is personal for her it will increase their bond and make them more friendly with each other!

    Rachel is improving as a character. I thought she was at her best in the most recent episode. She even had some quite amusing lines.

    I like her, she's improving. She has chemistry with Hood and that works for me.

    And I agree with you both!

    I started out really liking Hood's character the most, but now I love them both.

    I love her glasses, sunglasses and eyelashes. Those long eyelashes. I was watching Valentine today starring her and David Boreanaz from Bones. She looks a lot better now than back then. Not that she wasn't pretty or anything. More mature I mean.
