Cool. However, there are actually 78,000 Netflix genres including funky ones like: Inspiring Girl Power Movies: Fight the System Movies: Sentimental Reincarnation Movies: Dramas Featuring a Strong Female Lead: Emotional Immigrant-Life Movies: Is there any way to submit new ones as we discover them?

@patel0phone Yep, that gets it to just under 3,800. We are almost there ;-) I have to have my Goofy TV Shows -, Showbiz Documentaries and Binge-Worthy Crime TV Shows though. Seriously though, that's the list I have been using. CTRL F works wonders.

@patel0phone @wmpitcher That list is very comprehensive, but many of those categories are so specific that they are empty now! When Netflix removes older content some categories become useless.

This is totally awesome. I love the Surprise Me feature- the two first surprises I got were "Deep Sea Horror Movies" and "Belgian Movies" 😂

Great work @shep_ben! Another reddit user created a Chrome/Firefox extensions that put "Super Browse" directly into your Netflix window. Keep in mind these came together in the last 12 hours (as of this post) so they're still technically in testing. Chrome Add-on: Firefox Add-on: Original reddit thread here:

Nice! Atlantic had an interesting article on just this a few years ago if anyone wants to read more about the secret categories-- article gets great around the Todd Yellin bits (Netflix's VP of innovation who came up with the crazy tags).
