As rdgrimes points out, you can watch Season 2 now, for money. It should become Prime eligible when S3 begins to air. In the meantime you can always watch S2 in the Syfy app, if you are a subscriber...

Well, I'm not going to spend $400 on new drives all at once. I'll buy a Game Drive for Xbox One SSD first and replace the Backup Plus Fast by-and-by. Even that will have to wait a couple of weeks...
