The Secret Codes That'll Help You Unlock A Whole Load Of Hidden Netflix Categories

Picture this: Your Uber Eats has just arrived. You've cracked open a tinnie. You're ready for a night in front of a decent flick - just as soon as you've actually decided what to watch.

By the time you've finished trawling through Netflix, your food's cold, your beer's warm and you've settled for a TV show you've watched four times.

Well, friends, those days are over. Turns out Netflix has a whole bunch of super specific categories that'll let you drill right down to which show or movie you actually want to see.

Fancy watching sports documentaries? There's a code for that. In the mood for a drama based on a book? There's a code for that. And what about campy comedies from the 1980s? Yep, there's a code for that, too. 

Here's a small selection of the ones you might find most useful but believe us when we say they've categorised movies by the most exacting parameters you can imagine (e.g. "Stand-Up Comedy starring Cedric the Entertainer").
