A New Way To Pick Something To Watch On Netflix
If you've ever sat down on the couch with the intent of watching something on Netflix only to find yourself clicking through a seemingly endless list of thumbnails for half an hour, you might want to check out Netflix Roulette.
Netflix Roulette allows you to select a genre of movie or TV show, along with a minimum IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes score. Once you've entered your criteria you're just a click away from watching...something. I think it's a pretty cool idea. It's like back in the day when you were channel surfing TV and finally just decided to leave it on some channel even if you didn't know what was coming on after the commercial break.
It did spit out some interesting choices for me, but I found myself repeatedly clicking the suggestion button so it likely wouldn't save me much time; however, if you ever find yourself with another person trying to agree on what to watch, this can serve as your Magic 8 Ball, Zoltar, decision making thing.
Since you've read this far, I'll share a couple of other nifty Netflix hacks here:
Never Ending Netflix is an extension for the Chrome Browser which automatically takes care of the "Are you still watching?" message.
Netflix Flip is a Chrome browser extension that rotates the screen sideways so you can lay on your side and watching without having to hold your head up. For some, this means ample binge watching without the need for a chiropractor visit.
