As 2015 comes to an end, it's always fun to look back on the things that made the year so memorable. From pop culture, to the top news stories, to game-changing world events, 2015 has seen it all. One of the funnest things to look back on, though, is what everyone seems to be watching. And when we say "watching," what we really mean is "watching illegally."

The common term for it is "pirating," and it's almost funny that this taboo practice also carries with it some surprising prestige. To be the most pirated show is considered a badge of honor to some. But to others, not so much. Although producers are flattered by the popularity of their content, they're ultimately still hoping you'll actually pay to watch the show.

Regardless of what the show's creators may think, the numbers are in. A recent report by BitTorrent now shows us which shows had the most heavily-pirated episodes in 2015, and many on the list will surprise you.

So, which show takes the crown with the most pirated episode? Here is the top 10 countdown:

10. Suits

Coming in at number 10, with 2,600,000 illegal downloads is "Suits." This popular show features an unlikely duo: College dropout Mike Ross and New York City lawyer Harvey Specter. Odd circumstances lead Mike to find work at Harvey's prestigious law firm, even though he's never been to law school.

The show first aired in 2011 on the USA cable network, and has grown in popularity ever since. Currently, the show has an estimated 2,380,000 viewers, and is gearing up to air its sixth season.
