Answer your own quesiton, is the show aware of the download, and/or are they getting any royalties from it. It is a resounding no. So, yes it would be illegal.

Have you purchased the TV show online (from a legal website) ? If not: have you uploaded as well as downloaded the series ? If yes: do you live in the U.S. ?
