Joss admits to being artsy-fartsy in that scene. And elsewhere. But right there I thought there was something wrong with my player or my shiny new disc set.
(He also mentions that the Chinese on Inara's swirly clock stands for "a brief interval.")

Poetical huh? What you're saying makes sense to me, but if that's the case, it was done in a way which made me think of a glitch before thinking it was meant to convey Inara's feelings.
Probably just me!

That's more a comment on the technology than the story telling! It's annoying when you can't take for granted that your DVD and/or player are working properly. But you're not alone. I've seen more than one thread address this.

Speaking of unreliable technology... sorry for the delayed double post.

Actually this was done because the original unaired pilot was too long so this was Joss Whedon's way of editing it down.

Oh, and play Cantr II at www.cantr.net.

Yeah, as far as I know, the editing hiccups in the Inara sponge bathing scene in the pilot and the Mal/Nandi scene in H.O.G. were both intentional. Other glitches may not have been.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.

I have also observed no plotholes so far. After having read some supposed ones on these forums I still hold this view, because they could all be discounted.
A particular example that springs to mind was one where someone suggested that Simon had said in Firefly that he had hired people to break River out of the academy, and is then shown doing it himself in Serenity. I never heard him say that he wasn't involved - he had financed a group of people to get her out, sure, and they were present in Serenity - the ship that rescued them and flew them out. Must have spent quite a while escaping after that, and it wasn't shown. All adds up to me.

That would be a very large plot hole if that were the case. The ship that rescued them at the beginning of the movie was not Serenity. The first time any of the Serenity crew laid eyes on Simon was on Persephone when he booked passage for Boros in the pilot episode. I have reconciled the discrepancy between what he says in the pilot and what we see him doing in the BDM as indicating Simon did not feel comfortable admitting his full involvement in the rescue to people he had just met, not knowing if they could be trusted.
