As a new Netflix user, I've quickly realized the allure of the TV and movie service all too well. It’s exciting to binge-watch a series for the first time. Trust me, I’ve spent endless hours catching up on pop culture phenomenons, like Stranger Things.
Once excitement wears away, you’re left asking yourself the tough question: what show, or movie, do I watch next? For this, enter Netflix Roulette. The service was created exclusively for Netflix users to figure out what to watch next.
So what is Netflix Roulette anyway? It’s a service that allows Netflix users to gamble for the next movie or TV show they should stream. Netflix Roulette works by letting you choose a genre, whether you want a movie, TV show, or both. It lets you choose a rating system between one and five stars. You can even specify your search by director and actor.
I gave it a shot looking for a comedic TV show or movie, anywhere between 3.5 and 5 stars and gambled my viewing future away.
I got the best results when I wasn't too specific. When I tried searching by Director or Actor, I'd either get no results at all or results having nothing to do with my specifications. Either way, Netflix Roulette is still a cool tool for finding movies or TV shows you wouldn't normally watch.
You can thank me when you find a really cool new show or movie to watch. But don’t blame me when you barricade yourself in your room for a week. You’ve been warned!
