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).

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

So for those of you who have had a chance to see it, what did you think?

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.

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.
