Storyline

Using slapstick comedy, off-the-wall story lines and sophisticated special effects, the Fist team of "lifestyle vigilantes" wage war on mediocrity wherever they find it. If that's confusing, then maybe you're too old for this fast-paced comedy adventure series, that both celebrates and satirises contemporary social issues and popular culture. Or perhaps you just need more fist.

Trivia

After the first series, the show was on a prolonged hiatus, with the ABC divided over the issue of whether or not to continue making the show. In March of 2006, after a number of attempts by the creators and support from fans via an on-line petition, the ABC finally gave the okay for a second series to be made. Shooting for the second series may begin in September 2006. See more »

Steve Foxx: First up, we hit the sunny seaside town of Kiama, where we show some of those spineless locals how to earn fist.

Unique
2 March 2007 | by mijbrilSee all my reviews

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.
