Let’s face it, it can be pretty overwhelming sorting 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. That list is for another post. One of the best Netflix secrets I’ve found 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, 3652 is the code for Biographical Documentaries. So just go to https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/25804 and you will get a list of all the available shows that fall under that category.

Some of the more interesting and useful categories I found are:
