They go after all sorts of religious and new age nonsense on their show. I spent wasted a good part of yesterday watching the first two seasons of the show in their entirety.

They had one skit of a couple looking to buy a used wardrode at a yard sale. When the proprietor informs them that the wardrobe has a portal to Narnia, they ask if they can take a "test ride".

SPOILER ALERT: (I couldn't figure out how white out the text; the "font" tag doesn't seem to work here in the comments.)

Moments later, they emerge from the wardrobe in full medieval/fantasy attire announcing how they'd just spent years in Narnia. But then they decline to buy the wardrobe because "it was a bit too Christian for their tastes."

In the tradition of "Dave Allen At Large" (remember that one?).
