* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' also takes place in New England- specifically Rhode Island, or [=RhoDYlan=] as the natives call it. Peter and Lois have prominent Rhode Island accents. Indeed, the show's creator, SethMacFarlane, is a Connecticut native and went to college in Rhode Island. Seth based Peter's voice on a portly Rhode Island police officer he got into a situation with while at art and design college.

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!

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.
