I think it's safe to say that there's more than one way to skin this cat. I loved the show and would have watched 5 more seasons that included all the scope from the books. It probably would have been pretty great. But they also probably would have ended up needing to recast several of the main characters at some point, which would have been tough for people to take.

They could have certainly told a much less dumb version of this story, with all the cuts, had they just wrote it better. Having the full 10 episodes these last 2 seasons would have helped too. There's nothing inherently wrong with the plot itself, they just threw it together too damn fast.
