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.

http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/###

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.

They even have categories broken out for children based upon age:

Movies for ages 0 to 2: 6796
Movies for ages 2 to 4: 6218
Movies for ages 5 to 7: 5455
Movies for ages 8 to 10: 561
Movies for ages 11 to 12: 6962
