* ''Series/WynonnaEarp'': Late in Season 3, it's revealed that the doorway to the Garden (an archway atop a winding stairway which is only visible at certain times) is in the woods in the middle of the Ghost River Triangle, and Bulshaar, the BigBad of the season and GreaterScopeVillain of the series, is also revealed to have been the serpent, and he's trying to get back in. Then in Season 4 we actually see the Garden, and find that at some point it's been reduced to a barren wasteland, due to [[spoiler: now serving as the [[SealedEvilInACan prison]] of a shapeshifting demon who mockingly calls herself "Eve"]].

For a Gnostic? It's a [[spoiler:Jail of blissful ignorance]], created by the Demiurge to trap Adam and Eve so they can't turn against him. It's just the Snake foiling the Demiurge's plan by letting them eat the forbidden fruit.]]

** The name "Eden" pops up in the episode "The Way to Eden", which is about a group of space hippies searching for the mythical paradise Eden. It turns out to be a FalseUtopia. Although Spock strongly encourages the hippies to continue to look for the real Eden, or make it themselves.

Added DiffLines:

* As crazy as this may sound, it ''may'' have been a (semi-) real place. A site called "Gobekli Tepe" was unearthed in what's today Turkey (right near the border it shares with modern-day Syria). It featured stone henges that predate Stonehenge, and indeed ''farming''. The henges were decorated with depictions of animals (which may be totemic animals, or possibly clan sigils showing which family each one belonged to). People gathered there to celebrate something, as evidenced by large amounts of wild animal bones that showed signs of butchering and cooking, and even vats for the production of ''beer''. Now, what does all this have to do with Eden? Well, besides being located in the right place (between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, with two tributaries), the animals referenced could be those on the henges. The story, being a JustSoStory, may also reflect the hardship of the transition from a ''relatively'' easy hunter-gatherer lifestyle to a farming lifestyle (to produce enough food and drink for a growing population), and all of its challenges: more wear and tear on the body, social stratification, living in closer quarters, patriarchy, etc.

* ''Series/GoodOmens2019'': The show begins in the Garden of Eden, with Aziraphale (the angel guarding the Eastern Gate) and Crawley (the demon who tempted Eve) [[FriendlyEnemies having a casual chat about the whole affair]]. The show metaphorically ends the same way, with Adam leaving his father's garden to go visit a traveling circus.
-->'''Aziraphale:''' Uh okay, so, uh in the beginning, in the Garden, there was well, ''[glances at Crowley]'' he was a wily old serpent, and I was ''technically'' on apple tree duty--


* In ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier'', the Garden Eden, along with the Klingon Qui'Tu and the Romulan Vorta Vor, is conflated with the Vulcan creation myth of Sha Ka Ree, a location from which all life originates and man's questions could be answered.
