This series, based on a comic book, has no direct connection to anything written by William Gibson. That being said, it feels like Gibson. More than that trashy Keanu Reeves film and more like anything that has beem made imitating his style. It has the Gibson ambience- that feeling that technology has gotten out of control of most of us, but there are still people who are tough, smart and ruthless. People with allegiance to no one, limited tolerance for "good guys" or "bad guys" and no patience for stupidity.

In the show, like many Gibson stories, the characters- male, female, young adult, muli-racial, etc., consider every day survival and high tech just another weapon. It's not about IT, it's about people trying to outwit other people, virtually and otherwise.
