WATCH: What did you think of the first episode?

Viewers were disappointed that the show was only 30 minutes long and took to Twitter to complain. One person wrote: "Why is Breaking Dad only on for 30 mins [crying emoji]," while another added: "It’s absolute madness that @itvstudios send the Walsh’s all around the world for a 30 minute a week episode! Squeezed the whole of Croatia into 30 minutes! Such a good show though!"

A third person pleaded with ITV to make each episode an hour long, writing: "These #BreakingDad episodes need to be at least an hour-long because I love Bradley and Barney's banter - it's such a feel-good series, although Bradley needs to win next time," while another agreed, adding: "I always enjoy reading the nice tweets about #BreakingDad cos I agree with them. Can we have longer episodes though? We need more of their giggling and antics."
