Barney and Bradley Walsh in Breaking Dad series 4

Breaking Dad viewers all have same complaint as show returns

Give the fans what they want!

Bradley Walsh’s show, Breaking Dad, has been a hit with viewers since it first aired back in 2019, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t had any criticism and series 4 is no different.

Last night, viewers all had the same complaint to make about the show – that it wasn’t long enough!

Bradley and Barney Walsh returned to screens with season four of Breaking Dad last night (Monday, January 17).

The first episode of the new series saw Bradley and Barney travel to the island of Vis in Croatia.

Whilst out there, the pair swung across a football stadium on a rope, went head to head on aqua bikes, and tried their hands at freediving, which is diving without the breathing apparatus.

The freediving was so difficult that Bradley was forced to abandon the task, and not for the first time, either.

Despite Bradley having a tough time of it during last night’s episode, viewers were loving the show’s return.

However, a common complaint kept cropping up last night – that the episodes weren’t long enough!

Fans took to social media to gush over Breaking Dad, whilst also complaining about how episodes were too short.

“25 minutes is not long enough,” one viewer grumbled.

Another brilliant episode of #BreakingDad tonight. I wish these episodes were longer, 30 mins feels so short,” another tweeted.

I always enjoy reading the nice tweets about #breakingdad because I agree with them. Can we have longer episodes though? We need more of their giggling and antics,” a third fan wrote. 

“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!” another said.
