Episode - Castaways

Castaways was on today, as you probably already know. What did you think of it? I liked the music, but I thought it had a feel like it should have been the first Backyardigans episode shown.

The official character description of Austin says that he's the "new kangaroo on the block" and is a little shy, but that's never made sense to me. He's never acted shy or new, until now. At the very beginning he's watching the other kids through a hole in the fence and talks about how he wants to play with them but he's too shy. It doesn't make sense this far into the series, but would if this was the pilot episode. At the end, it becomes apparent they know Austin at least to recognize him, but they still seem a little hesitant, unlike earlier episodes where the friendships seemed much more established and sturdier.

On in the episode notes, the same thing was pointed out. The commenter said that she/he thinks Austin might show up more often, now. That should make the Austin fans happy!
