Is Rizzoli & Isles Full of Beantown?


TNT's hit summer drama is ostensibly set in Beantown, but most of the stock L.A. locales where the show is actually shot look more like Malibu than Massachusetts. It's too bad R&I couldn't shoot on location, like the vastly superior mystery adaptation Spenser: For Hire did back in the '80s, but apparently it's cheaper to fake it on a backlot.


Even worse, Angie Harmon's Texas twang keeps slipping through her stab at a Boston brogue. (The Dallas-born ex-model was more convincing as an NYC ADA on Law & Order, especially since her character was established as a transplant from the Lone Star State.) With the Celtics' and Bruins' playoff collapses and all the Red Sox injuries, hasn't the city suffered enough lately?

I'm with cnagirl22... LOVE it! Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander just gel so well together, their chemistry is definitely the strongest point of the show.
