Added DiffLines:

* Diane's family in ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' all speak in extremely broad stereotypical New England accents, unlike Diane herself, who's more articulate. It's implied that her efforts to culture herself and move beyond her working-class family is what ostracized them from her (along with the fact that they're all just rotten people to begin with).

* Jim Rome loves to play this up on his radio show, particularly involving one of two things: Pete Gillen's "Duke is Duke" comment ("They're on TV more than ''[[LeaveItToBeaver Leave It To BEAHVAHHHH!]]''... reruns."), or his favorite movie, ''Film/GoodWillHunting'' ("Let's go beat up some rich kids-[[VerbalTic AAAAAAAAHH]]!").

* Mort Walker and Dik Browne were both from Connecticut, so their comic strip ''ComicStrip/HiAndLois'' took place there, but depicted the usual small towns positively instead of mocking them. There would occasionally appear [[SceneryPorn beautiful landscape drawings]] in the panels!

* '''North Shore''': Fishermen, townies, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick heroin]]. Also has some LovecraftCountry features, especially since Salem is located here.

If you're venturing up here, you're probably either going to a large gathering at the Kowloon or passing through on your way to the New Hampshire Seacoast. Stay out of Lynn if you can.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Rizzoli and Isles}}'' is set in Boston and some surrounding areas for the entirety of its seven seasons. However, since the show was shot in California, R&I's version of "Boston" never snows. It's worth noting that the two main characters are a Boston-Italian from Revere, and an upper-class Boston native globetrotter who once had a long-term college liason with a Boston Brahmin expy. Oh and [[spoiler:she's actually adopted, and is really the daughter of an infamous Irish mobster in-universe]]. Opposites really do attract.

* The Commonwealth, mentioned in passing in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', is implied to be based in Massachusetts. Or at least the Boston area. It's also mentioned, however that aside from its Institute (MIT), it's not much better off than the Capital Wasteland.
** ''{{VideoGame/Fallout 4}}'' is set there, with much attention being paid to the Fenway Park area and Scollay Square (now Government Center). Vault 111, where the game begins, is northwest of Boston in the fictional town of Sanctuary Hill, near Concord.

Much attention being is paid to the areas around Fenway Park area and Scollay Square (now Square[[note]]Which in our universe eventually became Government Center).Center.[[/note]], which host the two major in-game settlements, Diamond City and Goodneighbor. Vault 111, where the game begins, is northwest of Boston in the fictional town of Sanctuary Hill, near Concord. The upper class stereotype is represented in Diamond City by the wealthy upper-stand residents; one of the families there is actually named "Codman." And Lovecraft references abound, including a location called the [[StealthPun Dunwich Borers.]]

* ''DawsonsCreek'' was set in the fictional town of Capeside, Massachusetts, but actually filmed in North Carolina. The only character that had a New England accent on the show was Jen's grandmother.

* '''Connecticut''': Posh universities with lots of old money, endless suburban sprawl, tons of rich spoiled brats, and some horrifically nasty cities with very small pockets of safety that you do not stray from under any circumstances (Hartford, New Haven, and Bridgeport all come to mind). Rural CT overlaps with LovecraftCountry.

The phrase "Pahk my cah in Hahvad Yahd, 'cuz that's a good ideer" is a well-known [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shibboleth shibboleth]] of the accent, though through years and years of joking overuse of the phrase the pronunciation of it in most media (and amongst most non-Bostonians) has distorted it and exaggerated it beyond recognition[[labelnote:For a somewhat fairer/more accurate shibboleth]] In a Bostonian or similar New England accent, "car keys" and "khakis" are pronounced nearly identically.[[/labelnote]]. By the way, the car will get towed, and saying it to an actual Bostonian or attempting to get them to say it is [[BerserkButton asking to be thumped]].
