Storyline

Phil Diffy is the oldest child in a normal family. His sister, Pim is an often devious girl with an unusual vocal talent, his mother has a robotic body, and his father spends all of his time working on their broken time machine. Okay, so Phil would be normal he were in his own time. Until then, the Diffys are stuck in the early 21st Century (what they consider the past) and trying to fit in. Only one person knows their secret, Phil's new best friend bubbly and popular Keely Teslow. But with this new life and the misadventures that come with it become the norm, when the time comes will Phil want to return to the future? Written by Max Vaughn

Trivia

In the original show concept Barbara Diffy was going to have a detachable head and a robotic body which is why the character is wearing chokers and turtle necks throughout the first season to cover up where her head was supposed to come off. However, all scenes of this idea were cut out during the episodes aired, despite clips being included in some of the early advertisements. See more »

Disney's Second Best Show
16 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, "That's So Raven" is Disney's best show, but "Phil of the Future" is excellent as well. It is likable for all ages, with Ricky Ullman leading as the title character, Phil Diffy. The show's story is as follows: A family from the future (the year 2121) travels through time, and becomes stuck in the present time (2005). This is a very original plot that should be given some sort of medal. It's such an obvious idea, but no one's attempted it yet. The story centers mainly around Phil (Ricky Ullman), but we do get glimpses into the life of his little sister Pim (Amy Bruckner). Ullman's character is an adorable, everyday nice guy that everyone likes, but Bruckner's is the bullying girl that everyone is afraid of. When they clash, it's very funny, and the brother/sister chemistry is good with these two actors. As if they weren't enough, we also get a likable and enjoyable performance from Phil's best friend, Keely (singer/guitarist Alyson Michalka). Despite these great showings from these 3 youngsters, the adult star is actually not even a regular. Vice Principal Hackett and Curtis the Caveman are both played by the show's director, J.P. Manoux, who does such a great job of playing the loveless Hackett, and the clueless Curtis. Craig Anton and Lise Simms are supporters, playing the parents of Phil and Pim. Anton plays the father very well, making him likable and funny, in a non-purposeful way. Simms' character as the mom is really the only down-to-earth character besides Phil, but she does have her quirky moments. All in all, this is a fun show that is great for the whole family, which is Disney's forte, right? Go check it out this weekend 9/10 RUNTIME: 30 Minutes
