Thanks, Steve, for this nice addition with pics.

From a distance I keep thinking that's Chevy Chase on the right in the first image.

Here's a random media appearance - an odd pic of a mahjong parlour on the cover art of a new EP in my Bandcamp music feed (German artist and record label).

Mahjong appears in a 2019 episode of The Flash with some flashy gold-backed tiles.

I found a nice table in a Chinatown gang hideout in the video game Watch Dogs 2.

Tohai (2013) is a live-action series based on a manga about a high-school student drawn into an underworld of gambling.
Just spotted that Amazon Prime Video has both seasons of this, listed under the translated + original title - "Frozen Tiles TOHAI".

It has the original Japanese dialogue but English subtitles. Seems to have a good focus on the tabletop action (so far).
