The family consists of Lloyd, who is convinced that he’ll fix the time machine in no time, though it’s been quite a while since he made that claim; Barbara, who considers herself a pioneer, as she can (and has) easily adapt to the century she’s living in; Pim, a rebellious girl who dreams of ruling the world and looks down upon the residents of the twenty-first century; and finally the show’s star, Phil, who is much like his mother in adapting to the twenty-first century, though that’s mostly due to him using his futuristic gadgets to get him (in and) out of trouble.
Phil hangs out with Keely Teslow, who dreams of becoming a famous news reporter, though she’s an accomplished singer, as well. Phil and Keely seem to be attracted towards one another, and have gone on a few dates, though nothing exclusively. Keely is also the only person who knows that the Diffys are from the future.
The Diffys regularly must hide the fact that they are from the future, as if they are discovered to be time travelers, they fear they will be taken away by the government. Pim and Phil’s vice principal, Mr. Hackett, believes that the Diffys are aliens of some sort, and has found evidence to support his theory, though something always occurs which leaves him without the knowledge of this evidence.
Though Phil of the Future is no longer aired on Disney Channel in the USA, reruns can still be seen on Disney XD. It can still be seen on Disney Channel UK and Disney Channel Australia. [-] less
