Three things to watch on TV this week:

1) Eden: Paradise Lost, Channel 4, all week at 9pm

Ok so technically this aired last night, but it's something that will be running for the next five nights! This series is a look back at Channel 4's failed reality TV experiment where they put 23 strangers in the remote Scottish Highlands where they were supposed to stay for a year- building their own society from scratch. However the show was cancelled after just four episodes- only ten contestants managed to stay in Eden for the whole year. Apparently things turn very dark...

2) Atypical, Netflix from Friday

Yet another new Netflix original series begins this Friday and we love the look of this one! It follows the story of 18 year old Sam who is autistic and in his last year of high school. He makes it his mission to get a girlfriend, something which he finds difficult as he finds it hard to pick up on social cues. This series tackles the realities of living with autism, but in a humorous and heart warming way. 'Atypical' is produced by Robia Rashid, who worked on 'How I Met Your Mother' and 'Bad Teacher'. 

3) Trust Me, BBC One, Tuesday at 9pm

This new four part psychological thriller series stars Jode Whitaker-  who's lined up to be the next Doctor Who. In this series however, she plays a nurse- who gets suspended after bringing neglect in her hospital to light. So, she swaps idenity with her mate who's moving to New Zealand. Problem is- her mate's a doctor, she's not, but she takes her place anyway in an A&E department. Mmm...you can see what will go wrong here...
