Kninjanin, ima wait for others to come along here, because I do not even know what is a torrent (except for the rainstorm, here in the Pacific raincoast!).
Torrent websites have good and interesting content.
Rooster gave good advice. I would be careful about downloading torrent material. You never know what might be mixed in.
