"Double the Fist" is without a doubt the single best Australian TV show ever made.
True, compared to Australian TV in general that's not much of an achievement, but still.
A clever, full-on, fast-paced social satire that mocks popular culture, it is one of the most original TV series in recent years.
The ABC should be ashamed of themselves for canceling this brilliant piece of Australian television. This series is the true underdog story. It was rejected by every channel except ABC, but only on the condition that it be shown 11:30pm Friday nights. Depite this drawback, not only did it became a cult sensation, but at the very next AFI awards (Australian Film Institute, an awards night voted by judges rather than the public), Double the Fist won the award for best Australian Comedy, sitcom or sketch, beating the favourite "Kath & Kim".
To get an idea of what the show is like, think of it as a cross between "Jackass" and "The Goodies".
Primarily the show is a spoof of shows like Jackass; where those shows do things that will injure and/or humiliate an individual, the Fist Team do things that would obviously kill them. Tackling subjects ranging from Reality Television, to protesting, to sport, to Terrorism, this show is thought-provoking and a laugh riot. Next time you get a chance, check it out.
