If there is one thing that we love to do over a weekend or after work, it's snuggling up to a good series that has us hooked, line and sinker...And with Vic Naidoo's weekly 'Watch Party' segment, we can easily go to one place and find out what's hot off Netflix without all the hassle involved in scrolling and making a match.

Now Vic Naidoo has gone even further with his love for binge watching, he has discovered a useful tool aka a cheat sheet of codes. The codes are based on genres, so thriller, comedy, reality, etc. 

With the lists and lists of shows that are included on Netflix, the aim of the cheat sheet is to help Netflix's algorithm work best for you. After all, it's all about making life easier, right?

Since Netflix uses algorithms to assist viewers to go through TV shows and movies that will appeal to their tastes, this is all based on what you have watched already. However, your binge watching needs may be more complex than what you have watched already.  

"Depending on what you've watched, Netflix's recommendation algorithm might've buried the perfect movie or show. If so, Netflix codes can help you filter through the onslaught of content to find more interesting recommendations than the usual fare." (CNET)

As much as the codes aka cheat sheet is not a new phenomenon, it is helpful if you want to spend more time watching rather than searching. However, the codes can only be applied to the website and not on the app. 

"The cheat sheet is based on a number system the service uses to categorize films and shows by genre and subgenre. Note that codes can only be used on Netflix's website, not in its apps." (CNET)
