    How about the manga?

    the first series is okay, the second is good, the movie based on the 2 tv series is okay.

    The first movie isn't particularly good, and the second movie is poor.

    Haven't read the manga but I've heard some pretty scathing things about Shiro masamune and his exceedingly shiny heroines and their even thinner waists.

    The first movie was okay, the second was boring crap. What I've seen of the first season of the TV series was pretty tasty -- tasty enough to put up with a dub.
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.

    What they said, But I'll recommend you to read the manga. The movie is a classic, and I consider the manga as the same. But it varies from person to person, so either you love it, or hate it.

    Thanks for the advice
    Ghost in the Shell has a lot of media so it's really hard to know where to start

    Lol, what all you guys said pretty much the same
    hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....................

    This is one of those series that has high production value across the board, 2nd movie is so-so, first a classic as stated, never read the manga, season 1 and 2 are a good watch.

    Now for something new... can you read fast? If you aren't a fast reader, or don't understand st least a little Japanese, then this series might have you pausing on occassion as there is a lot of dialogue, it's just that I've seen people get turned off by the series just because of the fast subs, well the first season anyway, I don't know anyone who's seen the second season subbed except for me.

    I never had problems keeping up with the subtitles.

    The movie based on the show would be the third movie, right?

    I liked the series and the third movie better than the first two movies, but the first one definitely had it's own feel to it and is great in it's own way.

    Togusa and the tatchikomas are my favorite characters.
