An image from Millennium: Broken World.

This is a steady enough episode that doesn't set its sights too high, and as such delivers a perfectly satisfactory first season entry. What's particularly refreshing about it though is that it doesn't kick off with a homicide. The slaughtering of the horses and what Frank describes as “the birth of a psychosexual killer” is a nice change of pace, allowing us to come at familiar territory from a fresh angle.

Another positive is the all-too-true comment from Claudia Vaughn that despite the multiple horse attacks, Frank wouldn't be down investigating if a human hadn't been targeted. On the flip side, the pace can be rather pedestrian and the turns of the plot fairly formulaic. It's nice to see that neither Frank nor the law enforcement characters are the ones to ultimate bring down the antagonist though, with it instead being thanks to the horse (i.e. the victim) in the final confrontation.

In short, the episode is pretty standard fare, but it's the odd refreshing touches of originality that allow it to fall on the positive side of average, rather than the negative.
