If Netflix’s plan to dominate the world comes down to “make enough new shows that everyone will want to watch,” then it’s doing a pretty good job. Over the next few weeks, a barrage of new original material will show up on the service, including stand-up specials from Maria Bamford and Tracy Morgan and new seasons of some old favorites. Wondering how you’re going to spend the next month streaming? Here are five of the best additions to Netflix in May, followed by a complete list of what’s leaving and arriving on streaming that month.


DOCTOR STRANGE
It might not have been the psychedelic masterpiece that it was hyped to be, but that doesn’t mean that there’s no fun to be found in Scott Derrickson’s attempt to answer the question “What if Iron Man was Benedict Cumberbatch and used magic instead of a suit of armor?” Come for Benedict Cumberbatch, but stay for Benedict Wong.


GET ME ROGER STONE
Sure, he’s a political operative who has worked with both Richard Nixon and Donald Trump, earning him the title of “one of the most terrible figures in the last 100 years of American history,” but that doesn’t mean that the story of Roger Stone isn’t a compelling one. Fresh off a successful festival run, this documentary shows up on Netflix mid-month.


HANDSOME: A NETFLIX MYSTERY MOVIE
Why it’s taken this long to get Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Goldbergs’ Jeff Garlin in front of the camera (and behind it; he’s directing this) for a modern day Columbo about a detective whose name is actually Handsome, who can tell. Let’s just be glad that it’s finally happened, and that it he’s accompanied by Natasha Lyonne and Amy Sedaris this time around.


HOUSE OF CARDS: SEASON 5
The previous season of this show felt a little off the boil, but if anything, the current political climate should make it either much more relevant and timely than ever or else distract us from the machinations of those actually abusing their real-life political power for reasons both craven and simply imbecilic. It’s win-win!


MASTER OF NONE: SEASON 2
Aziz Ansari’s sitcom was a surprise in its first year, mixing comedy and genuine insight about modern life with an ease that felt like the work of people who’d been making the show for years. For this second outing, the series abandons its U.S. set-up for a spell with Dev relocating to Italy to learn how to make pasta and become a happier person.
