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

A great, funny, Disney Channel Original Comedy.
9 August 2004 | by (Fresno, CA) – See all my reviews

I was very impressed with Disney's newest show Phil of the Future. It gave new life to the Disney channel. Plus, it is very different from Lizzie Mcguire, Even Stevens, Thats so Raven Etc. If you think about it this is the only Disney channel show (with real people) that has a different plot than:

"teens trying to find there place in life and survive the brutal life of jr high/high school."

i mean the POTF plot is SO different than that. And i am SO glad its not another Lizzie Mcguire. Aside from the annoying sound effects every 30 seconds and the out of order episodes, this is a well thought out planned Disney channel show. And Ricky Ullmans (Phil) acting is great and he plays the role of Phil perfectly. Amy Bruckner (Pim) brings comedy and life to the show. And Alyson Michalka (Keely) is a great choice for the roll of Keely. All in All, this is a great Disney show and i will continue to watch it.
