Sync Team Year in Review: Stranger Things, Gotham & More

Netflix Stranger Things - The Orchard on TVFinding top notch television can be an arduous task – not to mention time consuming. By the time you’re ready to settle in and start the first episode, it’s already around regret-what-you-ate-for-dinner o’clock. Well, look no further: Below, you’ll find three of the sync department’s favorite TV shows from 2016!

1. Stranger Things (Netflix) – “I Melt With You” by Modern English (TVT)

Stranger Things was perhaps the biggest show of 2016, holding steady at a ripe 95% on Rotten Tomatoes. The sync department was more than happy to join in on the fun, placing “I Melt With You” by Modern English in Episode 2.  The whole series is available for streaming on Netflix right now. It is also available for offline play so you can watch it on the Subway/the cheap coffee shop that doesn’t have WiFi….

2. Bates Motel (A&E) – “Stardust” by Glenn Derringer (Cleopatra)

Everyone’s seen Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic film Psycho, but have you ever wondered what happened before the events of the 1960 classic? Bates Motel delves into Norman Bates’s childhood, chronicling his transformation from troubled child to the Norman we all know and love. Along the way, approximately Season 4 Episode 10, you can hear Glenn Derringer’s “Stardust” upping the creep factor during a key moment (no spoilers!) in the Season 4 Finale.

3. Gotham (FOX) – “I’m Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover” Tiny Hill (Hindsight)

Gotham is the greatest superhero show that never shows the superhero it’s about. Yes, that’s right. As of now, Batman has never once showed up in all his caped, gadget laden glory. Of course, Bruce Wayne plays a role in the series, but the true intention was to provide an origin platform for Commissioner Gordon and an assortment of super villains. This show certainly doesn’t need Batman to live up to expectations. You can hear our contribution in Season 2 Episode 19.
