Channel 4's new reality show The Bridge has bewildered many viewers who were expecting to see a bridge being built.
Narrated by James McAvoy, the series premiered on Sunday night (October 11) and saw 12 strangers tasked with building a bridge over 250 metres of water in 20 days in order to be in with a chance of winning £100,000.
Among the hopefuls were a plumber, a stripper and Trisha Goddard's daughter, Billie.
But what did viewers think?
While viewers were divided about the show overall, there was one aspect they were equally perplexed by — the lack of actual bridge-building.
As the most qualified contestant Sly took a backseat after a personality clash with Billie, the contestants only managed to build six feet of the bridge over a two-day period and viewers were NOT impressed.
"Why is The Bridge a weird mix between Love Island and a documentary," said one viewer.
"Are they gonna start building a bridge between all this eating?" added another.
"Why haven't they started building the bridge?" said another. "This is just Big Brother on a lake."
Below are a few more of their reactions:

In the closing minutes of the show, two members of the team were sent off for their chance to take home £5,ooo each.
Viewers will have to wait until next week to see whether they'll be tempted enough to take the money and whether any more bridge building gets done!
The Bridge continues next Sunday (October 18) on Channel 4.
