Criminal Minds > Rachel Nichols Speaks on Criminal Minds Role > Comments Page 2
I thought Reid was gay? I'd rather see him with Garcia.
Rachel Nichols played a profile specialist on her own show, The Edge, on Fox and she was pretty good. But I agree, breaking up the show's core is beyond stupid. Paget's departure leaves a big hole. A.J. Cook was a quiet, beautiful presence.
I'm a little late to the party commenting on this, but--if Seaver and Reid start dating, I stop watching Criminal Minds. I very much want to see Reid in a happy, stable relationship--but NOT with a coworker. I'm afraid it would take away from the gritty excellence of CM and add in a bunch of sappy, vomit inducing drama. Rachel Nichols is pretty, but so far I'm not impressed with her acting abilities.
I am lost for words. They told us they were getting rid of JJ and Emily becos of budget cuts and then they go and hire Seaver. Are we to believe she is on CM for free then ? I dont think so. She cant act, she is wooden and she just does not fit in anywhere. She is probably related to one of the writers or directors. Thats why she is there. Well, she is going to lose you money cos people are going to stop watching !

Plus the hatred is missplaced, people are pissed at CBS and those who are running this show and they might have reasons to be, but Rachel Nichols was offered a job, she might audiotionned for it and won the part, why does she deserves the hatred? she didn't push or elbow AJ Cook or anything.
AJ Cook is gone, she's not coming back, get past it. Can't get past it? Stop watching? Can't stop watching...you'll eventually get past it. ;-)
this might sound very stupid but i reconnected to the show through this new character ;-)
@trueCMfan - amen to your comment about placing whack-ass Seaver on fracking Suspect Behavior.
don't like the character, never will. i heard that this was supposed to be only a three episode character at first? what happened to that? bring back JJ, you guys made a huge error in judgment.
i would also like to say that while i am an MGG fangirl, i would really like to see him with someone. HOWEVER, not Seaver, ever ever. since he's kind of an eccentric character, what if we saw him with someone who looked a bit outside the norm of "standard" beauty, more in the direction of Garcia? i think that would fit more with his character than homegirl.
When I first saw her it was the first time I turned the show on since JJ left and thought who the f*ck is the blonde *ss Bi*ch!! I am pissed. Dear CBS instead of making a new f*cking criminal minds and leaving the old show to rot keep the old people I have not watched any episode since JJ left F*CK YOU CBS F*CK YOU!!!!!!!11
Here’s an idea for the seventh season:
Bring AJ and Paget back as JJ and Emily, renew everyone’s contracts for one final season, git rid of Seaver or at least make or recurring or throw her onto Suspect Behavior cuz she doesnt fit on the original.
Ideally, the seventh season could be the final season starring Thomas Gibson, Shemar Moore, Mathew Gray Gubler, paget Brewster, AJ Cook,, Kirste Vangness and Joe Mantegna.
Focus on everyone’s background stories,everyone should get an arc and fans should get closure. We should learn more about thier secrets and how they ended up in the BAU and why they wanted to be there. Also, I am a JJ and Spence fan, so they should get together somehow because in my mind, they are perfect together.Provide better writing and some more long term unsubs, and everyone gets closure. Fans and CM cast alike. ANd everyone else should get love interests that are in the background and dont take up to much time of the main storylines. But they all deser
Good bye Criminal Minds! Enough is enough. This latest character change sucks, jmnsho. But, I stick to my word, Prentiss goes, I go and I won't watch the new show, which I knew would be coming along. It was nice while it lasted, But CBS always pushes too much. Maybe you could save money getting rid of that nut case Charlie Sheen, amazing how much they put up with, when it's a male character.
No one can mess with JJ and Spence. Not even friggin Rachel Nichols as Ashley Seaver. Get rid of Ashley Seaver. Horrible character, crapass actress and she does not belong on the show at all. I saw the pic of Aj with MGG and my heart just broke for AJ. JJ and Spence should have been a couple! They have so much chemistry. Please for the love of God, get rid of Rachel Nichols. SHe sucks so badly, its painful to watch. I'm not a hater. I gave her a chance. SHe has nothing to offer and that was made clear in 25 to Life. paget looks like its hard for her to act opposite Rachel Nichols. Poor Paget cant even crack a fake smile for Ashley and why should she? Rachel sucks! Ashley sucks!
I just saw a pic of AJ Cook and Rachel Nichols posing with a Criminal Minds behind the scenes makeup artist or something in between them. They are comparitively different looking but AJ is always going to be prettier and more talented and I want her back on the show along with every single person I know. I miss JJ and EMily is leaving too, obviously because Nina Tassler screwed them over and didnt keep AJ wi=hcih doesnt make sense. Every blog or discussion thread I have been on, most people dont like Rachel Nichols as Ashley Seaver. SHe sucks the life out of the show. AJ is so much better and has so much class for even agreeing to pose in a picture with that ho bag skank low rent actress Rachel Nichols who has highjacked the best show on tv and thinks she aint going anywhere. Ugh! I love AJ!
i dont like the new chick at all. I like AJ and and Paget. The show worked so well with them. Now the show has lost its footing without AJ. Get rid of this Seaver girl. She's... terrible, to say the least. Really. No chemistry at all with the team. And her acting abilities, constantly trying to get the team and the audience to fell bad for her? Please. She does not seem damaged at all to me. Just a father with highly questionable career choice. THe hell with Rachel Nicholson!
Rachel Nichols sucks! Bring back AJ. Coolest actress all around by any means!
Rachel is just your everyday average tall blonde model type of girl. Nothing particualry special about her or her acting. SHe doesnt belong on Criminal Minds at all and she does not look good with reid. Seriously. The fans who are actually taking the time to speak their minds on this should be considered. Most of the fans feel the same way but just dont really go on the net to speak up, though they should. Get rid of Seaver. Btw, AJ is so much better. SHe has a lot of range even though she got stuck doing some bad movies but all her good stuff far outweighs the bad such as FInal Destiantion2, The Virgin Suicides, Out Cold, Misconceptions, Higher Ground, and of course, Criminal Minds. AJ has a ot of range and versatility and she is not your average actress either and she doesnt have average looks either. Her eyes say it all! She has the most beautiful blue eyes that I have ever seen. Very envious!
Bring JJ back. Get rid of Seaver. Crappy character much? Come on. The writers can do better. Cant you see that the majority doesnt like this AJJ/ JJ knockoff? ANd she is a knoff off. A low rent, poor acting knockoff who fill never fill the hearts of true Criminal Minds fans. SHe does not fit in with the cast. I will never like her! Never! Get rid of her!
Oh how i loathe , despise and detest Ashley Seaver. THe character does not fit in or make sense on the show. What makes the writers think that its realistic for her to become a regular. The idea of a cadet on the team is interesting, but they btoched the story line early. Plus there was my negative predisposition to Rachel Nichols. never like her on ALias or The Inside. I was really looking forward to The Inside, but Rachel played the character so badly that they cancelled the show. Actually she was ok. But I didnt buy her acting on the show. Please bring JJ back!!!!!!!!!!
Ashley and Reid better not happen. Rachel's charcter doesnt seem like an outsider to me exactly. No offense to anyone, but Ashley had a serial killer for a father but didnt know for however long, after that traumatic experience came to light, she probably went through a tough time befor changing her name. Ashley seems to have a few tragic details in her life becuase of her father, but aside from that she doesnt have anything in common with Reid and doesnt seem tragic or misunderstood. Ashley seems like a well adjusted character played to annoyningness that knows no bounds by Ms Nichols. KMN if she stays past this season.
Rachel Nichols is ok as an actress. Not the best but not the worst. But she doesnt fit in with the cast of Criminal Minds at all. Its really dissapointing that they lied and made her a regular after promising not to make the new character a regular, then giving her an arc, then making her a regular again. Budget cuts? Yeah right. They shoulda kept AJ. I liked Elle but I dont miss her plus it was Lola Gluadini and Mandy Patinkins choice to leave the show, not AJ's or Pagets. This is tragic to fire perfectly good actress on a great show and hire someone new who sucks.
Rachel is a decent actress but she's too famous for CM without really being famous. Plus she's plays the smae type of character on Alias and The Inside and Criminal Minds. THe hot rookie, naive. Rebecca Locke and Ashley Seaver are decent characters, played somewhat horribly by Rachel. Rachel was fine in GI Joe, but she isnt good on Criminal Minds. Its not her fault. But obviously after being hired after AJ Cook there will be haters.And she doesnt look exactly alike but similar enough to AJ, just nowehere near as pretty or talented. Sorry Rachel, as a guest star you were tolerable, as a regular I am going to stop watching because you have single handedly ruined the best show ever.
How could they fire Aj Cook and Paget Brewster? They realized they made a huge mistake which is why they asked Paget to staty and obviously Paget wont stay without AJ on the show. It was a major undeserved slap in the face for two of the best, most underrated and gorgeously talented actresses on the planet. AJ is Mary Lisbon from The Virgin Suicides and Shelby from Higher Ground plus she was Lindsey in Tru Calling and She was in great movies like Final Destination 2( the best one) and Out Cold. SHe clearly has range because all these roles are so far away from each other in character and shows how much talent she has. I think AJ would make a great Gaia Moore from Fearless if they ever bring that to life again. Rachel sucks.
Rachel Nichols came in on ALias and she fit in. But the show got canned. Rachel had her own show "the inside" and that show got cancelled. Rachel is meant to be a movie actess, not a tv actress. Rebecca Locke had a lot of great potential but wasnt exactly played right by Rachel. Ashley Seaver is a decent guest character, but has no long term chemistry with anyone in the cast. Of course they will be nice to her on set but she does not belong on the show. Its not even in characeter for Hotch to let her on the team in any way shape or form. and she and Reid better not happen.
i liked her well enough on her introduction episode, but really only as a guest character. i haven't seen fit to like her at all in any of the following episodes she's been in; i'm inclined to dislike her and they haven't done enough to rectify that
OK did you purposely go out and find the worst actress in hollywood for this role?
I'd rather one less female, and more face time for Paget Brewster
