Awesome / Double the Fist

Go To

For such a short, low budget series, there were many. I suppose since technically this is the shows premise, it's to be expected. Not limited to:

  • The cartoonish show about punching things and yelling manages to beat Kath and Kim at the AFI awards.
  • The series one final where Steve fights off a group of terrorists who have set a meteor to wipe out all weakness (and everyone else) from the planet, then stealing their rocket and using it to destroy said meteor.

  • Half of anything Mephisto does, but in particuler, fighting a Plesiosaur in Series Two.
  • The series is essentially four guys who wanted to make a TV show, and did. Not only that, but it was pretty damn good, and beat popular Aussie show Kath And Kim at the AFI awards, as mentioned above.
  • Small, but Steve destroying a low quality model of the ABC for cancelling his show is pretty cool considering the show went missing for a few years. He then proceeds to break one of their biggest rules and shows the ABC's first commercial.
  • In Series Two, after gaining metal fists, Steve punches a man through the head and pulls out his skull.
  • The aforemention Mephisto dead man snowboarding. He later proceeds to use said snowboarder as a weapon.
  • Can I just nominate the fact that in Beat the House; Steve returns from Space after floating around for Four Years, then holds onto a shuttle door nearby and drives it into the Earth's Atmosphere, then crashlands on a Sand Dune near Sydney. That's the first minute of the Series. This show is fueled by this trope.
    • I'd say that fact alone counts as a CMoA.
  • Anytime Steve is bested by someone else, such as Tara tricking him into accepting an Eviction Notice, or the monks laughing off his attacks in Ultimate Weapon.

How well does it match the trope?
