The video Series 3, Episode 27 "Midnight Diner" on Netflix has a big sighting of Go. A woman character is apparently an insei and works as a timekeeper in rapid tournament games. We see pros playing and hear her counting the seconds. Another character is romantically attracted to her and to get her attention he tries to learn how to play go using an instruction book titled "How to Play Go for Middle aged Dummies".

Not sure how "mainstream" it is, but David Nolen gave a talk at Strange Loop, a tech conference, on Go that wasn't Golang: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2yJ3FBtU4Y

I'll try to find that episode today! Thanks. I enjoy Midnight Diner tremendously. Hmmm, Netflix USA lists only two seasons of Midnight diner with ten episodes each. Wait, this is "Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories." There is another earlier series with a similar title. Hard to find those earlier episodes on Netflix. Go appears ever-so-briefly but the highlight is this aphorism from the Master about go, marriage, and cooking: "If you don't clean the clams, the soup wil be sandy."

It's hardly fresh news, but I just noticed that go makes an appearance in a little 1983 French movie called Le Faucon (the hawk).

Technically speaking, Le Faucon belongs to a specific movie category knwon in French as "nanar", a word without English equivalent, and translated as "[a] film that's so bad it's good". In that case, it is a very cheap thriller movie, with some hallucinatingly absurd ideas into it. For the ones curious about it, and lovers of the genre, I garantee it's worth your time.

Anyway, at one point, the hero, a formerly elite cop looking for revenge, go to visit his father (?) ; and the aformentioned father is playing a go game against himself.

As it is often the case when go makes an appearance into western movies, the material is mistreaten, as the hero spills the stones into the board...

... and arrange a little position to illustrate his (very complex) point of view : he places a black stone surrouded by many white ones, meaning the bad guy he is looking after is encircled by police forces and has no chances. I cannot attach more than 3 pictures, but it's not hard to imagine.

I did not look that closely, but the game set on the first picture looks surprisingly accurate!...

Go appears in The Apothecary Diaries at least a few times. I am told that Episode 23 contains a significant Go game. (A friend texted me about it and sent the images, I am not that far in the series yet.)

Will watch it because symbology of the game is used throughout the rest of the series metaphorically

Go got an honorable mentioning in an article about string theory in the Quanta Magazine:

Quote:
When researchers at the artificial intelligence company DeepMind created the AlphaGo algorithm, which in 2016 bested a top human Go player, the physicist Fabian Ruehle took notice.

“I thought, if this thing can outperform the world champion in Go, maybe it can outperform mathematicians, or at least physicists like me,” said Ruehle
