While some moan about it being an all Mike volume, every episode here is excellent in my opinion. The key thing about volume 5 is that every movie is fun enough to watch on their own, so they don't hurt THAT much. The Touch of Satan, Time Chasers, Boggy Creek II and Merlin's Shop are bad movies, but they all have likable stupid characters, great stupid quotes and some really funny bad movie moments. It also helps that they all have plots that you can follow and deal in some really funny mystical or time bending stories. Also helps that it is a 70s/80s set of movies.
Name drop: My dad co-produced KTMA telethons with Jim Mallon in the late 80's

To be fair, Hercules Against the Moon Men had a slate card that only stayed for 2 seconds and turned black. Secret Agent Super Dragon had a slate card that only flashed briefly with no voice over. So those 2 episodes having no slate cards doesn't sound uncommon.
On the bright side, though, at least we'll have the Teenagers from Outer Space one.
