TV Boston

This isn't really nerdy, but...

What the hell is it with Boston and TV music? Apparently TV composers believe that every last resident of Boston is Irish. Case in point, Rizzoli & Isles. (It was three in the morning. I couldn't sleep.) Rizzoli? Italian. Isles? Boston aristocracy. There's one Irish character on the show, I think.

So what's the music they use?


  1. Hahah, I noticed the exact same thing! It especially threw me off because the first time I saw the series was by chance on TV so I didn't know it was set in Boston. Even so, strange!

    1. Same thing with "Leverage," if you watch that. The show's musical theme is "trying to be cool," but there's a Celtic riff every time they're back in Boston.
