The Empire of Britannia has invaded Japan using giant robot weapons called Knightmare Frames. Japan is now referred to as Area 11, and its people the 11's. A Britannian who was living in Japan at the time, Lelouch, vowed to his Japanese friend Suzaku that he'd destroy Britannia. Years later, Lelouch is in high school, but regularly skips out of school to go play chess and gamble on himself. One day, he stumbles on terrorists 11's who've stolen a military secret and is caught by a member of the Britannian task force sent after them, who is Suzaku. As the rest of the squad arrives, Suzaku is shot for disobeying orders, while the military secret, a young girl, gives Lelouch the power of Geass, which makes anyone obey any order. While Suzaku is secretly made the pilot of Britannia's brand new prototype Knightmare, Lancelot, Lelouch becomes the masked Zero to lead the rebellion to destroy Britannia once and for all.

Are you surprised?
Matchmaking dates are usually in hotels or restaurants.
Uh, I suppose that's true, but I'd heard you were a very unique person, Lord Asplund.
[works at computer]
Unique! What a delightfully awful way to put it.
I'm surprised you're interested in a girl from the downgraded Ashford family after it lost its rank.
[turns to Milly]
Oho! But I couldn't care less about loss of rank.
[sets down a tray of tea for Lloyd and Milly]
I'm sorry to trouble you.

If you told me Code Geass sucked, I wouldn't even flinch. There's too much going on, and a lot of it falls flat. Its a mecha anime, its a high school one, and it has aspects of fantasy. Its serious, its funny, its ecchi. It has feats of genius, and feats of pure power fantasy. It has, no joke, dozens of plot twists. More than a few of them come out of nowhere, and one of them is among the worst plot devices in history. Plot points have unsatisfactory answers, accelerate three times too fast, or get bogged due to clutter.
F it. I'll still support this show. Its pretty fun, it has some great suspense, generally good pace, and a few emotional scenes. The characters are mostly likable and three-dimensional. Lelouch, our lead, develops, and has moments of sorrow and heartlessness. And the action is top-notch. These knightmare frames are fast! And no battle is a push-over. Some of the plot twists are mind-blowing, too.
A lot of people love this anime. I know more than a few who dislike it. I can't say you should check out the first episode to decide, because that only breaches the surface of Geass's strengths and weaknesses. Regardless if you'll love it or hate it, its defiantly something out of the ordinary.
