It's episode 67... and we've arrived...
Arrival (2016) tells the story of a doctor of linguistics as she is enlisted by the US Army to help talk to some newly arrived aliens. Why are the aliens here? We can say literally nothing about it without spoiling it...
We talk about the difficulties of teaching a non-human species to speak a human language; the relative futility of keeping an internationally televised invasion a secret; and just how useless a theoretical physicist is when you need to action!
All of which leads to one big question:
How would you survive?
Whatever happens, one thing's for sure... If you could see your whole life laid out in front of you, would you change things?
