As for the ones it has clearly got wrong - it's like any system. Misuse it and it won't work very well, and in this series it has been misused. This isn't a problem with it that is impossible to overcome.
I don't think the DRS is perfect. For starters the umpire's call rubbish on LBWs needs to be ****ed off, and it has the wrong overall objective. Its objective should be for the third umpire to make what he thinks is the right decision, as opposed to giving the benefit of the doubt to the on-field decision.
With all this said, from a point of view of purely looking at the amount of correct decisions, DRS even as it is now is still streets ahead of no DRS.

Anyone think this pitch is occasionally a little two paced? Seen a few blokes getting through their shots a bit soon on the odd occasion. By no means even a remotely poor wicket, but I get the feeling it isn't quite as true paced as it seemed at first blush.
Ok, probably the time to say that we should take discussion of UDRS/the decision to the other thread and leave this one for the cricket.
'cause in a clearing when the sunlight comes
exposing all the shadows in our intricate behaviour
i feel a sort of fading
we build our own unfolding.
Not liking Broad bowling full length. Much prefer see him bang em in short.
