Netflix has none of what you don’t want (commercials) and more of what you do (movies, shows, and specials) but if you find yourself watching the same episodes of The Office over and over again, it’s time to rethink your queue. The dizzying amount of choice on your favorite streaming platform can feel overwhelming at times, but with the right tricks up your sleeve, you can find exactly what you want to watch—without spending an hour clicking through those never-ending feeds.
Netflix organizes all of its content into special categories — thousands of them in fact. You can explore each genre by typing its unique number after the web address: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/X, with X being the code. So the next time you’re mindlessly scrolling through the homepage, jump to exactly what you want using one of these special shortcuts.
