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

Its a great show
16 August 2004 | by dempseyravenSee all my reviews

I love this show! Its one of my favorite Disney shows along with raven and Lizzie. Ricky Ullman is a good actor and I have a feeling he'll go far. The show has a good story base and its awesome. Its a great show for teens and tweens and i love it! I love Pim (amy) and Keeley(alyson). Its a funny show and who knows, maybe all the gadgets they have will give someone an idea for an invention for the future. lol. Anyways I hope the rest of you enjoy it. I hope to see these actors/actresses in more upcoming films. This is just a great show on Disney and i watch it about every night Keep Watching! I know I will be.
