If you're a Netflix subscriber, here's a little "how-to" you may find interesting.

If you've searched around their site looking for something to binge watch you've probably realized how specific they can get within each genre. I read over a statistic they mentioned they had over 60 different, specific genre key words that covered a subject like Mistaken Identity. That's a broad scope if you think about it for a minute.

They have a pretty simple system, easy work around. As example:

Code:
http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/###

That's their basic url for searching genres.  If you add 5286 in place of the # signs you're in business.

www.netflix.com/browse/genre/5286
5286 takes you to Sports Comedies.

A list for your convenience.
