Yes, because we give a damn about law and morality, and because we understand that creators of works we want to see can't keep making those works if they don't get the payment they're entitled to (which in the case of TV series comes through ad revenues, which are dependent on people actually watching them on TV or legal, ad-supported streams). If there's a legal way to watch the show online, one that the creators will actually be compensated for, then by all means, provide a link for us. Otherwise, don't even bring it up.
"Law"; "morality".
These days, the lobbying groups for the entertainment industry are working hard - with SOPA, ACTA and similar laws - to censor the Internet. They don't care about 'law' and 'morality' - defined as respecting the rights of all others - as long as they maintain their profits.
The promoters of ACTA claiming to be 'moral' carries a heavy dose of irony.

Personally, I either watch on TV/listen on radio or buy the entertainment I want.
And I find myself not really caring that the so-called 'pirates' are cutting into the profits of such characters: what goes around, comes around.
