* Thurston Howell III, from ''GilligansIsland'', spoke with a stereotypical "Larchmont lockjaw" accent and was emphatically a son of Harvard, despising Yale and all it stood for. * ''MurderSheWrote'', set in small-town Maine. Featuring William Windom, Tom Bosley and a slew of random extras using phony Down East accents thick enough that they may qualify as the network-TV version of Creator/DickVanDyke doing Cockney in ''Film/MaryPoppins''. Bosley's attempts were particularly egregious. * ''{{Cheers}}'' (or should we say ''Cheeahs''?) was set in [[strike:Boston]] Bawstin, though the only character with the accent was Cliff. There was still a fair bit of local color on the show, such as Sam's history with the Red Sox, Carla's fanatical defense of Massachusetts sports teams, and a guest appearances by Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill and a few Kennedys.

* In keeping with family tradition, JoeHill, author and son of StephenKing, uses a fictionalized version of New Hampshire and Massachusetts in his novels and short stories. The novel "Horns" takes place in the fictional Gideon, New Hampshire but was changed to the Pacific Northwest in the film adaptation. In "NOSFR82", the female protagonist lives in a fictional western Massachusetts town and visits New Hampshire's Hampton Beach on her portal-producing bicycle.

* Music/{{Pixies}}, who formed in Boston (Joey Santiago and Black Francis were both students of the university of Massachusetts Amherst before they formed the band, too). ** Music/DinosaurJr are another band with roots in Massachusetts, in their case Amherst. ** And then there's Music/ThrowingMuses, from Rhode Island. Their were a lot of AlternativeRock groups from New England back in the 80s/90s.

* TheLastOfUs manages, oddly, to largely avert this: The geography isn't 100% accurate, but everything is in approximately the right place and the distance and timing both make sense as Joel and Ellie go from Fort Point, through the Financial District, to the State House. You even fight your way through the Old State House, which is largely accurately depicted.

* ''{{Soap}}'' was set in the (fictional) town of Dunn's River, Connecticut, and plays this trope straight - Dunn's River might as well be on Long Island for how much time the characters spend in Manhattan.
