re A Clockwork Orange:
I know the novel better than the film! I actually did a GCSE English Lit essay on it. :D

Hilariously, I was using an old second-hand copy that had come out in the wake of the film, which excludes the last chapter and therefore misses the redemptive bit. The consequence of which is that my entire interpretation of the book is predicated on the lack of a redemptive bit, to the point where when I eventually read a copy with the final chapter included it felt tacked-on and ancillary.

re 52-Man Pickup:
This sounds like a really brave format for a show, because there's a non-zero risk that an audience member asked personal details about their sex life is going to say "None of your fucking business", which I imagine would throw off the show's momentum a bit. I mean, it'd be kind of a rude reaction but hey, there's rude people out there, and sex is the sort of subject people often react strongly and suboptimally to.

re Hamlet of the North Star:
This sounds like the sort of thing that could be very easily retooled to be a hilarious parody of shoddy Hamlet adaptations.
