Herogasm Episode Features Extended Content Warning


It’s not entirely unusual for a new episode of a streaming series to open with a content warning before things begin. Several episodes of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series and even season 4 of Stranger Things included them, and now The boys gets started, but not in the way you expected. This week’s episode of the hit streaming service, the highly anticipated and much talked about “Herogasm” episode, begins with its own content warning card before things get started. As expected, and in typical boyish fashion, this is a very ironic and bizarre warning, but it sure looks like Amazon Legal compelled them to.

After the Amazon Prime Video logo appears, the car appears, stating, “Some scenes may not be suitable for some, really most, let’s be honest, all viewers. But rest assured that any consensual relationship depicted, that whether human, animal, superhero, or otherwise, are not real, have harmed no one, and actually cost a hilarious amount of visual effects.” You can see it for yourself below.


“There’s definitely a lot of craziness going on,” series creator Eric Kripke explained in an interview with TV Guide Magazine’s Sci-Fi & Fantasy Collector’s Special Issue about the new season. “It’s no secret that we’re doing an episode on ‘Herogasm’ from the comics, which is a massive superhero orgy. And we’re doing something in the first episode that I think is definitely the thing craziest thing we’ve ever pulled off…and might be one of the craziest things anybody never tried to get out of it.”

“I read all the comics when I was cast as Hughie, and ‘Herogasm’ was one of those issues where I was like, ‘Okay, we have to do this or some version of that because it’s the craziest thing I’ve ‘ever read,'” star Jack Quad previously told Entertainment Weekly. “I think we’ve definitely stuck with the comics. I can’t really say much about ‘Herogasm.’ yourself, to see how it unfolds. It goes places you wouldn’t necessarily expect it to go.

Six episodes of The Boys’ third season are now available, with the final two episodes arriving over the next two weeks. As of this writing, the show’s new season has managed to retain its 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with a “Certified Fresh” distinction, tying it with season two as the best batch of episodes. rated from the show. Even with the critical acclaim that followed the show, many viewers criticized the show not only for its content, but also because the series continues to release episodes weekly.
