    I am a total newb, so sorry if this has been covered. I just learned about torrents, and downloaded Hancock. Now I am wondering if there is a way to get it on my AppleTV vs watching it on my iMac. I am sure there are a number of variables with this, but if someone could point me in the right direction that would be great.

    Boxee (a free plugin for the apple tv) has a torrent client built in to it; you can ssh from your mac into your apple tv and copy the file you downloaded over to the apple tv, then play it with Boxee (unless it's a 720p MKV, in which case, the playback will likely suck because Boxee doesn't have access to the GPU).
