Today’s Time Killer: Can you find the order?

Posted on Sep 9, 2014

My goal is always to entertain and educate, and this week’s Timekiller is an exercise in loglines.

“What’s a logline?” you might ask. Good question. I should answer that before we proceed.

Before a television production (as in Heartland) sends their finished episodes to their broadcasters (as in the CBC) they have other things that have to be delivered as well and one of these things is a synopsis and a logline for each episode, which explains in a nutshell what the episodes are all about. It might not cover off the entire storyline of an entire episode, but it certainly gives the reader a good idea of what the main storyline is!!

So, that being said, er, written, here are the 18 loglines for each of season 7’s episodes. But of course, in true Blog Whisperer chicanery, I have scrambled them so they're out of order. Your assignment, should you wish to tackle this time killer, is to arrange them in the correct order, by placing the letters of each of the following in the comments below, in the correct order.

Simple, no? Well… yes, as long as you are up on Heartland’s season 7.

Give it a go! Have fun, and watch for more from me soon. (And don't forget about last week's special Time Killer! I'm still hoping to see lots more #WhyILoveHeartland videos!)
