After an introductory montage of OUCH, Arrival posts a very believable enigmatic first contact. Like any event of that magnitude there would be shock, silence, people staring at the news, panic buying, looting, confusion... Hopefully there would also be good planning, international cooperation, calls for experts...

The big idea SF maybe gets a bit far, and the window and mist reminds me of both Childhood’s End and Torchwood: Children Of Earth, but it gets my recommendation just for the quality of the buildup. It starts out ominous and remains... tense throughout.
