    That happens because you have Parallels set us as the default app for .torrent files, so when TVShows tries to launch your torrent client it launches Parallels. And as you noticed, Parallels is not a torrent client so it doesn't recognise .torrent files ;)

    In order to change the default app for .torrent files, hit Cmd+i on a .torrent file, go to the "Open with" section, select the torrent client you want to use on the dropdown menu (if it doesn't appear, click "Other" and search for it in your Applications folder) and click the "Change all" button. Then, if you click any .torrent file it should open this app, and TVShows will also trigger it.
