While the film was conceived partly as a satire of conservative cultural "guardians" and their prudish and narrow-minded views, it was also inspired by the emergence of cable television, which they felt would someday allow for adult-oriented programs to be seen more widely regardless of what happened on major broadcast networks.

Stephen Feinberg (Played the Proctologist and was one of the writers)
Stephen Feinberg, who Played the Proctologist and was one of the writers of the movie, passed away in early 2006. I met Steve in Portland in 1993, it was a year latter when he told me that he had been a writer in Hollywood years earlier, working mostly on TV promos. He asked me not to see 'Tunnel Vision', but it was too late, I had seen it already! Actually I had seen it years before, when it was released. At that time I didn't think it was that bad a movie. However seeing it as an adult my opinion was somewhat different. Yes is is a bit puerile as well as dated. Steve admitted it was not a very good movie. That said he was just a little proud of 'The Proctologist' sketch.
