Then I would avoid Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex like the plague.
Personally I love the show and would recommend it to anyone looking for a serious and mature anime series. The show focuses on the characters and adventure of Public Security Section 9, a paramilitary unit in futuristic Japan.
It is primarily an investigative and philosophical series broken up with humor and action scenes. The philosophy largely deals with what it means to be human and real in a world where cyber implants and Artificial Intelligences are common.
For more information I would recommend Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_in_the_Shell:_Stand_Alone_Complex) and the awesome soundtrack (Opening Theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtOksXq8yEI).
