Can any of you anime blokes (or blokettes) give me a basic primer as to what order I should watch the various entries in the GITS in?

Watch the original movie first obviously
Personally I would watch Stand Alone Complex 1 and 2 next just so you pad out your knowledge and interest in the rest of Section 9 .........then I would watch Innocence
If you watch Innocence straight after Ghost in the Shell I dont think you care enough about Batou and Togusa to appreciate the story you just lap up the graphics ......and wish Kusanagi would hurry up and show up!!
In my experience after that you will feel slightly anti-climactic ......give it a few months and watch original movie again followed by Akira to remember why you fell in love with the whole thing in the first place!
This should be posted in the discussions part of the site by the way

Thanks amomander! Sorry for posting in the wrong section. Any mod that sees this please feel free to move it.
I saw the original years ago and remember being really struck by the story and the look of the movie itself.

The first two movies as far as i know where both were based on storylines from the first manga. Where the third movie comes after the anime series.
The anime series are set in a continuity different from the manga and the 1995 Ghost in the Shell feature film.
so the order would look like
Ghost in the Shell
Ghost in the Shell: Innocence
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (1st seaons laughing man)
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: 2nd Gig (second seaons individual 11)
Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. Solid State Society (movie)
the laughing man and individual 11 are compilation movies based on the 2 anime series meaning they are just the two seaons broke down and made into quick fast movies about them. season 1 is the laughing man and the second season is about the individual 11 meaning those are the person/persons they are after.
