No, I dislike what they're doing to the source material. Leaving out stuff 'cos there's no money / time, fine. Changing dialogue parts that change a character's personality completely where it is just as easy (easier, even) to have the characters say the lines from the book (or at least, keep the original meaning of those lines and not make them do a 180 degree turn) just because of the show makers' personal likes and dislikes of characters, not so fine. I was looking forward to seeing Stannis on screen but all they've done is paint him as a remorseless villain, and interviews show they don't (want to) understand the character at all.
Stannis I agree with(I mean seriously, he's supposed to be an athiest, not some fanatic), but stannis wasn't really a great character until late ASOS. If anyone is a comic book villain, it's Littlefinger.
As for cutting stuff out they cut a few "larger" scenes from season 3(fist of the first men/mance's army) to have more money for season 4(Large battle of Meereen, battle of castle black)
