39 of the best secret categories on Netflix and how to find them

Business Insider Logo By Nathan McAlone,Carrie Wittmer of Business Insider | Slide 1 of 41:  Netflix has an insane amount of content, but it's not always easy to find what you want. The categories Netflix gives you access to are broad, which is made more frustrating by the knowledge that Netflix splits movies and TV shows into incredibly specific micro-categories. Luckily, it's pretty easy to access those ultra-specific categories. All are tagged with a number - for example, "Epics" is category No. 52858. And once you have that code, to get a comprehensive list all you do is type it into your address bar after the word "genre," like this:  http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/52858. We decided to look through the list of secret Netflix genres to find you 39 of the most interesting ones. The ones we chose are a mixture of awesome, random, and just plain weird.
