Let’s face it, it can be pretty overwhelming to sort through the vast amount of movies and TV shows available on Netflix. While there is a lot of great stuff, there are also a lot of movies and TV shows that a person should never spend time watching.
The good news is that Netflix has a secret master list of categories that are much more niche than the big buckets like Action, Drama, Documentaries, etc. As first discovered by What’s On Netflix, there is a way to access all these hidden categories to help you figure out what to watch.
Using your browser, go to the following url and swap out the ### with the code in the list below.
For example, 25804 is code for military TV shows. So just go to http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/25804 and you will get a list of all the TV shows that fall under that category.
Some Interesting Categories
Some of the more interesting and useful categories I found are: Zombie Horror Movies: 75405, Quirky Romance: 36103, Dark Comedies: 869, Disney: 67673, Political Thrillers: 10504, and TV Comedies: 10375.
