Beat The House

Douse the lights and board up the doors — ABC TV's AFI award-winning comedy, Double The Fist, is back for a new season of over-the-top action.

More anarchic than The Young Ones, more surreal than The Mighty Boosh, and chock-full of seething anger and blood-soaked special effects, Double The Fist is testosterone-fuelled TV that shows no mercy.

Three years in the making, this new 8 x 30-minute action-packed comedy series is a cinematic epic of love, betrayal and time travel spiked with high adventure, low blows and more digital effects than Transformers.

Led by charismatic crusader Steve Foxx, the Fist team includes extreme sportsman Rod; the mysterious Mephisto; and that large, loveable lump of man meat, The Womp. (Ably assisted by 'Panda' the Panda; vending machine assassin, Tara; and Odin, the professional wrestler, Ballistic Man and mythical warriors.)

With the power of the Fist, their mission is to make weakness history once and for all! Weakness is a plague devouring the very fabric of society but don't panic, Steve Foxx has found the root of the epidemic and he's ready to strike a deathblow to the candy floss comfort that has ensnared 85% of all Australians.

Double The Fist is a big, brash no-apologies comedy with heart and brains and spine. It flips between satire and action, slapstick and thriller, character-based comedy and bombastic special-effects extravaganza.

In a world running short on ideas, you have to give them this: there's nothing else like it on TV!

Australian acting luminaries lighting up the screen in this new series of Double The Fist include: Bruce Spence as the baby-eating Mayor; Kate Fitzpatrick, Ian Turpie, Ahn Do, John Leary, Hollie Andrew and The Umbilical Brothers.

Council Smash


Episode 2.02
Thu, August 21, 2008 (ABC2)

Welcome to Prawn World — abandoned fun park and the new headquarters of Double The Fist.

Fifteen glorious acres dedicated to crushing weakness — a snake-infested wonderland of rusting amusement rides that surrounds a secluded compound and prawn museum. The perfect location to start manufacturing the most Fistworthy thing you will ever see.

Just as he is about to begin redevelopment, the Fist's charismatic leader, Steve Foxx, is handed a council zoning rejection and eviction notice by a mysterious sword-wielding female council worker. Even more mysterious, the sword woman turns into a vending machine immediately after serving the notice.

This just proves what Steve has always said about local government — "They think it's their job to keep us weak and crush our dreams."

Steve is not the kind of man to take eviction lying down, so the team have a new mission — fortify the compound and resist the council's impending attack.

While The Womp and Mephisto barb wire every fence, board up every window and put razor blades on every slide, Rod (chosen for his stealth, cunning and stunning good looks) is sent to steal the council payroll records. In the council chambers, Rod discovers a terrible secret.

Tonights episode features guest Bruce Spence as the baby-eating Mayor. Don't miss the thrilling second installment of this sophisticated comedy action drama where local councils taste the power of Fist.

Fist Furniture


Episode 2.03
Thu, August 28, 2008 (ABC2)

Disgusted by safe, affordable furniture, the Fist's charismatic crusader, Steve Foxx, has designed a more Fistworthy range — a spectacular variety of potentially fatal furniture including the Bounce-O-Death for babies, the Office Chair Ejector, the Turbo Lounge, Bed of Nails, Fist Fire Alarm and the Fist Remote, with the power to shatter a television from across the room.

Before the dream of Fist Furniture can live, the Fist team must first destroy their rival, Varde, the Swedish furniture manufacturer headed by the elusive Birgit and the enigmatic Ingvar (a skull with a crown on a remote controlled car).

Womp is put in charge of the mission, but his attempt to lead is a disaster. Rod and Mephisto flee, leaving Womp captured by Birgit and her crew of capoeira dancers.

Powerless against the deadly martial art that is capoeira, the team are forced to turn to the only more legitimate form of combat: professional wrestling. Odin, star of the World Extreme Wrestling Federation, joins the team and trains Rod and Mephisto in the gentlemanly art of the smack-down.

Meanwhile Womp has been rescued by elves. Turns out Varde has been using them as sweat-shop labour all these years. The elves are looking for a leader in their revolution.

Can the Fist team overthrow the Varde CEO? Can Womp lead the elves to freedom? Just how powerful is the world's brightest lamp?

Steve sends Mephisto to destroy the Medieval Re-enactment Society and orders Rod to fix the website.

The Womp has to beg Rod to come on the mission and Tara, the sword wielding vending machine, is having trouble accepting that she's a robot.

A website virus kills Mephisto and turns Rod into a monster, however Mephisto is offered a new life by mysterious avatars (cleverly disguised Medieval Re-enactors) and Rod loses his hair and confidence but survives.
