I've seen a couple of the ads/previews...cautiously optimistic about this one! ;)

Check out that link! Aside from the lack of magic, I think it nails Shadowrun's dystopian setting (especially when the guy is going to work, and you see what's really on the other side of what he sees).

Do you believe in a greater WIRELESS, an Invisible(WiFi) All Seeing(detecting those connected- at least if within 100'), All Knowing(all online data) Presence that we can draw upon for Wisdom(downloads & updates), Strength (wifi boni) and Comfort (porn) or do you turn your back on it  (Go Offline)?

Well that's highly disturbing, and completely appropriate for the show!  :o

It's decent. Hard to say off just the pilot.

From what I've seen, it's Shadowrun, chummer! Seems to capture the setting well, with megas ruling the world, dirty deeds done in the shadows, and the non-corporate "citizens" leading a very hardscrabble life. As noted, no apparent magic, so not quite, but still very good at the setting. Sort of the "other side" of Leverage.
Spooky, what do you do this pass? Shoot him with my thunderstruck gauss rifle. (Rolls)  8 hits. Does that blow his head off?

Yep! The infiltrations in the show go very well with the new sourcebook Cutting Aces, there's a ton of technology that could have come straight from Shadowrun, and even plot elements like extractions.
