How it all began
New arrivals
Ressections on a group of talented performers
Gathering clouds
A new hierarchy
Five, six, seven, eight
Across the pond
And the winner is
We're back in business!
Some serious changes
And some new directors
A family crisis
Another assignment and a mistake
We have to say goodbye
The new producers
A downhill slide
Things get crazy
It's looking good, but not for long
On location
Hello and goodbye
New hands at the wheel
A good beginning
The last of the new kids
And so it is over
Fame lives on
A final goodbye
