  • Seems kind of strange

    After the penny missile rolled under the springboard, Phil took a running jump and leaped onto the springboard, flying him onto the bars and performing several revolution, then onto the rings twirling for a while as well. But I thought the penny Missile was only supposed to effect his jump on the springboard, not the bars and the rings. And by the way, does anybody know what the 'W' stood for on the white circle graphic on his uniform? I couldn't understand what that meant.moreless

    This episode is a sign the writers didn't scope Phil's character out before starting the series. Phil "discovers" people enjoy following and knowing successful athletes. What seems out of place is Phil already a big sport fan of the games in 2121. His Mother even says he should try out for one of the Laser Ball team and then corrects herself (remembering they are in the 21st century). This makes his realization even more out of character.



    Their Dad takes away all the future technology, when Pim misuses it to get rid of the garbage. His action seems strange as why would he "punish" Phil for the action of his sister? After all Phil is suppose to be the good boy and (other than tell on his sister) didn't do anything wrong. Plus, the technology they turned in to their Dad didn't seem to include everything - such as their Wizards.



    NOTE: An earlier episode "Raging Bull" shown on July 2, 2004 has the use of Wizards. This is why one would expect to see Phil and Pim turn in their Wizards.



    Obviously, these holes exist because this is an early production episode (but shown later on). Considering Disney knows their shows run for a short period (e.g. 2 seasons) the show not having a complete "Phil of the Future Bible" seems a faux pas.moreless
  • This is a good episode.

    Pim had to take out the garbage and she didnt want to so she took this device that made the garbage can fly way up into the air. It landed way over at Phil's school. Phil got it and showed it to his dad. His dad was so mad that he took all of the things from the future and put them into a drawer and said not to use any of them.



    Phil is jealous of this guy named Troy who is in gymnastics and he won 8 medals. He is showing off at lunch time. Then Phil breaks into the drawer and takes the device that his sister was using and put it on his ankle and tried out for gymnastics. He was good and he made the team and the school liked him.



    I gave this episode a 8.5 out of 10.moreless
