I love how this show handled its experimental episode like this. These types of episodes usually manage to make the most of of the unique aspects, while giving great character moments as well, and that was definitely true for this episode. Beyond the race-against-the-clock aspect of the episode, I loved how they used the different characters to serve the plot, like with Klinger pretending to be Potter, Charles giving blood, and especially BJ having to deal with the dying patient and his friend. Also, this has one of the more memorable lines from Mulcahy IMO (second only to the line about doctors warming their hands over bodies from "The Interview") as he asks God to take the dying soldier sooner rather than later.

The one issue I did have with the episode was the somewhat awkward start, where they were playing cards near the landing spot for the helicopters.
