Orange is the New Black
From the short film “Time Agent” presented by DUST on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeSRwdq5M_E)
Based on the placement of the stones, I assume they are actually playing Gomoku but I figure it’s close enough?
Seeing that Counterpart has been mentioned twice but no pictures were provided, I decided to include a few:
Howard (Alpha) vs. Andrei - First Match (S01E01):
Howard (Alpha) vs. Andrei - Second Match (S01E01):
Howard (Prime) vs. Andrei (S01E05):
Counterpart is one of two things that sparked my interest for Go. Unfortunately, I think S01E05 was the last episode to reference the game—incidentally, with a book found in someone’s apartment:
Okay this is quite a stretch, but it’s still good.
Misaeng, the K-drama (based on a comic). Go is a major part of the protagonist’s plot.
And it’s a great series.
Elena vs. Sam (S01E09):
Spoi vs. Ler (S0xE1x):
And to carry on with time travel, here’s a match directly from TMNT III (of all things):
Kenshin vs. Master Splinter
They could have at least found someone who knows a little more about the game to set up the stones in a relatively realistic manner …
