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?

Do you buy Rizzoli & Isles' depiction of Boston?
