The present paper aims to approach Black Mirror’s episode “Hated in the Nation” over a set of possible questions. A natural function becomes extinct and the scientific discourse, which tends to move ahead with a rhythm that becomes unattainable for any kind of mediation, interferes with a technological substitution. New drone-bees fly over the British air and, although unsuspected for the society, surveille each of its habitant’s movements. In this context, a man infiltrates into the system and proposes an apparently innocent game which strips the gap between the natural instinct of the already extinct bees and human being’s death drive, confronting all of the participants with the effects of a phenomenon characteristic of our age: alienation to screen.
