There are shows in the world that are unique to their country of origin. You watch "Yes Minister" & know that's uniquely English. You watch "Friends" & know that it's uniquely American.
"Double The Fist" is not only uniquely Australian, it's just simply UNIQUE with some of the most off-the-wall humour ever made. Made on an embarrassingly small budget, everything about the show works in the way intended. Each episode follows a basic guideline of the crew having thought of something completely absurd, then The Womp, Rodd Foxx, Tina T & Mephisto interact even more absurdly (& usually violently) with the idea (with Steve Foxx commentating along the way) until most things are destroyed in random acts of violence while earning "Fist".
The show quite rightly won the 2004 AFI award for Best Comedy Series. Here's hoping Series 2 can maintain the impetus generated 3 years ago.
Highly recommended if you don't mind cheap production & absurdity mixed into a very unique blend.
