You've logged thousands of hours into Netflix and chill...well...not really so much the chill part, but you've definitely binge-watched your fair share of shows. That's cool. But what happens once you're done watching stuff that's actually good? It's not secret that Netflix is brimming with shit titles; most of them cheap imitations of popular films. Finding something you want to watch can get kind of intimidating, and the pre-set movie categories seem a bit limiting. 

But what if you could browse other, more specific categories? 

Well by inputting these secret codes, your quest for finding something to watch on Netflix will become a little easier. Heck, you might even up your Netflix and Chill game in the process

Netflix has a ridiculous amount of titles, but it's nearly impossible to just browse them all. So get access to new categories with this nifty trick.

That number is the key to finding new lists. If you play around with it, you can find more specific movie titles with lists that match your tastes that are more specific than the "subgenres" option. 

Some examples of custom lists are Period Pieces, and visually awesome kids movies, for ages 5-7? The possibilities are endless with this list.
