Even though Netflix has an impressive library of seemingly endless content, it can sometimes be difficult to settle on a TV show or movie to start watching. If you’re anything like me, you can spend close to an hour searching for something interesting, whether it be a title you heard about or one that has interesting-looking cover art.

The Netflix Top 10 and Trending Now sections are helpful to see what’s new and popular, but once you’ve made your way past those categories, there’s a lot to browse through. Luckily, there are things called Netflix codes which are meant to make TV and movie choosing a whole lot easier. Even though we can already drill down by genre on the platform, these secret codes get even more specific and tap into exactly what you’re looking for.
