When you sit down to watch some Netflix, do you ever have a tough time finding something good to watch? Netflix has thousands of great shows and movies for you to see, but they can get lost in a sea of unwatchable junk. There are a few ways to help you discover more great stuff you’ll love to watch. The more movies and shows you rate, the better Netflix’s recommendations will get. Giving movies you love five stars and TV shows you never want to think of again a single star will help Netflix generate more accurate suggestions based on your tastes. You should also fill out the Taste Preferences survey, which can be found on the settings page of your account. This lets Netflix know how often you want to watch certain types of movies – sorted by mood, genre, decade or more. There are pages and pages of these breakdowns – the more questions you answer, the more likely you’ll be to find movies you want to see. Happy watching!
