ABC's discarded gem.
3 July 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Hardly anything good comes out of the ABC. Hardly anything Australian, anyway. British comedy, British drama, British documentaries, it's all there. But one fateful Thursday night back in mid-late 2004, my mother called to my attention this show, suggesting it was "Right up my alley". I was automatically interested. Within the first few minutes of viewing, I knew this show was going to be one of my all time favourite shows, sadly cut from ABC's generally lackluster line-up, only to appear on the odd occasion when ABC programming runs out of bird documentaries to run.

With an extremely small budget, and a small cast and crew, they managed to pull off the impossible. A balls out, action/comedy fun-fest to rival most other generally dull and generic Australian comedy shows, providing much needed fresh material on Australian airwaves.

For the budget, the production values for this show are fantastic. Full 3d effects, unrealistic stunts made realistic, often silly and very painful looking. Full props to the team for producing such a fine show on a limited budget.

Anyone that hasn't viewed either DVD (Season 2 finally being released, much to the joy of Fist-Fans), these are definitely worth checking out. With over 3 hours of material on a single DVD, it is definitely jam-packed with pure gold extra features and several hidden extras. Such as a 25 minute documentary on how they make the show, and how you can make your own show too on a limited budget.

If you haven't been witness to the fist yet, be warned. You're about to have your unfistworthy life turned up side down, set on fire, and thrown off a cliff. 9/10
