Cool Find: Let Flix Roulette help you decide what to watch on Netflix tonight

Flix Roulette LogoAnime fans these days are truly blessed. Gone are the days when you had to wait months and months until the next DVD of (insert name of anime series you’re following) came out, which of course you’d have to pay $30 or more for. Today, with our fast Internet connections, wide variety of computing devices and on-demand streaming video services, there’s always something to watch right at your fingertips. One could argue, however, that this is a problem in and of itself: there’s just too much stuff to watch out there! How is one to choose? Well why not throw caution to the winds and let the fates decide for you? This is easy to do, thanks to a cool service I found called Flix Roulette.

As its name implies, you’ll need a Netflix account to take advantage of Flix Roulette. But, with plans starting as low as $7.99, and with Netflix’s vast catalog of available titles (both anime and non-anime,) having a Netflix membership is definitely worthwhile.

Anyway, the next time you have trouble figuring out what you want to watch, just head on over to the Flix Roulette website. Click the “Spin” button to spin the wheels of fate and let Flix Roulette pick something random for you to watch. If that’s way too random for your tastes, you can filter by genre (only choose from titles in a certain genre, such as anime, sci-fi, comedy, action/adventure, etc.); type (movies and/or TV shows); rating (titles rated between X and Y stars, to filter out the crap – or to specifically zero in on crappy shows, if that’s what you want); and by director, actor, or keyword.

Once you click the “Spin” button, Flix Roulette will think about it for a bit, then it’ll come up with a random title for you. It’ll show you the show’s title, rating, a brief description of the show, the director and cast, and a thumbnail (usually the DVD/Blu-ray cover or poster art from the show.) Click the “Watch on Netflix” button and you’ll jump straight to the Netflix website and begin streaming the chosen title. It’s as simple as that.

Flix Roulette is a fun way of solving that age-old problem of “what are we going to watch now?” Try it the next time you have a group of friends over. Check it out today!
