Not Sure What to Watch this Weekend? Try Netflix Roulette

Netflix has thousands of movies and TV shows in its arsenal of entertainment. But that isn’t always a good thing, especially if you’re not sure what you want to watch.

With no many titles, I often find myself looking through the lists and go down a rabbit hole of figuring out what to watch. One of the good thing though, is that if you see something you find interesting, you can add it to your Watch List.

But even that can start adding up, and you could end up going through your lists and still not be sure what you want to watch.

Netflix Roulette

This site gives you a unique way of finding something to watch. Go to and choose the genre of the content you’d like to view. In Advanced Options you can choose the type of ratings the movie or video has – between 1 or 5 stars. You can also add filters if you’re looking for a specific director or actors name.

Once you made your choices, hit the Spin button. And then you’ll get a completely random result.

Neflix Roulette

Here I selected Documentaries with ratings between 3-5. And this is the first result I received in the screenshot below. There you can click to watch it on Netflix or if you’re not happy with the result, hit the spin button again.


If you’re looking for a new way to figure out what to watch this weekend on Netflix, this service can be a fun way to go about it. Change the options around if you’re not getting anything you want to watch.

This is just a fun way to see random films or TV shows you didn’t know about. Have fun and let us know what you think of this unique way of finding something to watch in the comments below.

    I can just picture myself hitting the spin button over and over and over. Kind of like holding the arrow buttons down on Netflix’s site. But maybe a little roulette would refresh things a little, thanks.

    On another note, you wouldn’t happen to know anything about betting on sports using the over and under options would you, Brian. Are you partial to any one or more horses for this weekend’s race? I’ve been playing around on

    It’s seems to be only for USA catalogue… Most of the recomendations are not available for my catalogue (Latam).
