Game of Thrones Overview

I recently watched Game of Thrones season 1 and was so impressed that I had to read the books as well then watched season 2 after that. Season 1 is a pretty faithful adaptation of "A Game of Thrones" while season 2 is not so faithful to "A Clash of Kings" with a lot of additional sex and violence and key plots turned on their heads! Both seasons suffer a bit from simplifying the characters and deciding to make them more distasteful than their book counterparts. The best example of this is Sansa who is loving, yet naive in the books and cold and uncaring in the tv series - that's not an exaggeration! On the other end, Tyrion, Eddard, and Catelyn are near perfect and must be given credit.
