Searching for the content you want on Netflix isn’t all that easy due to the streaming giant’s recommendation algorithm. Fortunately, a hidden list of numerical codes exist to help users better find the movies and TV shows they actually want to watch on the platform.

From “Martial Arts Movies” to “Tearjerkers,” the numerical codes specify a particular category. Once you’re signed into your account, all you have to do is replace the “INSERTCODEHERE” text with the desired code at the end of this URL string: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/INSERTCODEHERE. Paste the URL into your browser’s address bar and voila.

See the updated March 2018 list of secret Netflix codes below and let us know which category you’ll be binging. Not long ago, former President Barack Obama announced his plans to launch an original series on the streaming service.
