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 »

I like it
28 November 2004 | by (CA, US) – See all my reviews

For everyone who hates this show and wonders why they don't speak in some sort of futuristic language, remember, IT IS A KID'S SHOW! The acting isn't great, but I do like Phil's character. Ricky Ullman is actually a pretty good actor who will be in a lot of moves in the near future. You always know he's going to do something that will make the situation right. I don't really like when they start talking about Pim a lot, but I guess they have to fill the entire 30 minutes. I don't understand why some people are critiquing this show like it's on primetime network TV, but whatever floats their boat.

Anyway, this is probably my favorite Disney Channel show (without much competition).
