I haven't read any of Martin's books with the exception of 'Songs of Stars and Shadows' so I don't know about how close/far the TV series is from the books, but some artistic/medial freedom is something I usually don't mind.

Game of Thrones is a nice enough TV series - characters and dialog make it fun to watch. I'm quite content with watching season 2 this week as 3 will take its time to get over here as usual. But while I like GoT about as much as I liked Rome, I prefer Spartacus by far - can't wait for season 3 airing here.
Where GoT is rather sophisticated, Spartacus is stripped down to the bare basics: it's all about sex, violence and intrigue … *just* about sex, violence and intrigue, preferrably all in one and the same scene. The series manages to satisfy my baser instincts in a rather concise form: I don't have to sit through hours of character development to get to the next gory/sexy scene .

I'm not interested in seeing Vikings, though.
