Is there a way to look at all questions that have come up except for ones you don't want to see (i.e. futurama)? Basically can you block yourself from seeing certain tags?

Yes!

You can add the tag to your list of ignored tags.

Go to your profile, click "Edit Profile & Settings", and make sure you're on the Preferences tab:

From there you can also hide all questions with ignored tags by selecting the "hide questions in your ignored tags" option.

    disappointed... it doesn't really hide the questions, just grey's them out... I don't want to even see them at all... – Jonathan Miller Jun 29 '12 at 18:49

    @JonathanMiller You should use the checkbox I mentioned then. – Adam Lear Jun 29 '12 at 19:19

    sorry, I am apparently blind and/or stupid... – Jonathan Miller Jun 29 '12 at 20:54
  • I don't think this is how it works anymore. I don't see this in my settings. Has this process changed? This is pretty important as this question is linked to avoiding star wars spoilers. – 1252748 Dec 23 '15 at 22:09
  • @thomas Oh yeah, thanks. I updated the instructions to match the current profile design. – Adam Lear Dec 23 '15 at 22:12
  • Excellent, this is tremendously useful. I don't often get the opportunity to interact with any SE devs. So I'll take this opportunity to say: Thanks for all the work you do. I love this community. Cheers. – 1252748 Dec 23 '15 at 22:17
  • @thomas Thanks, glad to hear you're enjoying things around here. :) – Adam Lear Dec 23 '15 at 22:18
  • Any way we can get the mobile apps to honor the hide/grey out preference? I've got mine set to hide, and I still see questions with ignored tags on iOS. Another user said they have the same issue on android. – phantom42 Dec 23 '15 at 23:02
  • @phantom42 I don't know much about how the mobile apps work. If this doesn't already exist, it's best to post a separate request. – Adam Lear Dec 23 '15 at 23:04

To plagiarize my answer on a Movies Meta:

This changed at some point and is not in preferences; now the way to hide tags rather than just gray them out is a box on the right side of the homepage:

Ignored tags are just grayed out

If you click the Hide questions in your ignored tags button, they will be hidden now:

They are hidden now
