Silvercar Makes Renting a Car Fast and Easy

Renting a car can be an archaic process, especially if you want to be in and out in a matter of minutes. Thank goodness that there’s Silvercar. The new car rental service puts not just ease into renting a car; it also gives renters an added touch of luxury.

“The idea of Silvercar was sparked by one too many frustrating experiences at the rental car counter,” said CEO Luke Schneider. “The founders were disgusted by the white minivan they had been ‘upgraded’ to for their cool guys golf weekend. With the fundamental realization that car rental hadn’t innovated in decades, and still couldn’t tell them something as basic as what kind of car they were getting, the concept of Silvercar was born.”

Are you wondering why Silvercar is more convenient than traditional car rental agencies? “Silvercar solves the two problems that have plagued car rental customers for decades: Never knowing what kind of car you’re going to get, and the hassle of lines, counters, up-sells and paperwork,” said Schneider. “With Silvercar you always know what car you’re going to get: a fully-loaded silver Audi A4 with a wi-fi hotspot, satellite radio and in-dash navigator included. The entire experience is orchestrated through our elegant, powerful mobile app with the help of our onsite concierge team.”

That sounds exactly like the kind of car rental we want next time we go on a weekend getaway. Using an app is so much easier than all those lines and paperwork. With locations in Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Phoenix and San Francisco, and plans to expand into more markets, we suspect that the old way of renting cars will soon be a thing of the past. “We’re calling this the summer of Silvercar,” said Schneider. “We’ve set new records every single month as our customers take to the cities, highways, beaches and other destinations this summer. We launched Fort Lauderdale and Chicago in May and June and those markets are doing great.”

You can now stream the original Shōgun miniseries — here’s how
You can now stream the original Shōgun from the '80s!
Yoko Shimada and Richard Chamberlain in Shogun.

After making a tremendous debut earlier this year, FX and Hulu's Shōgun is easily one of the top TV series of 2024. In addition to being critically acclaimed, Shōgun is such a massive hit that FX is already planning additional seasons to what was originally a standalone adaptation of James Clavell's 1975 novel. It was also one of Hulu's most-streamed series of the year, so it's understandable why FX wants to keep the show going.

This isn't the first time that Shōgun has taken audiences by storm. The original TV adaptation of Shōgun from 1980 was widely considered one of the greatest miniseries ever made. It also had the distinction of being the first and only U.S. production to be filmed entirely in Japan. At the time the new Shōgun premiered earlier this year, the original miniseries wasn't available to stream. But thanks to the new adaptation, fans can now find the 1980 incarnation of Shōgun on one of the major streaming services.

The White Lotus season 3: Everything we know
Get up to date on everything we know about The White Lotus season 3.
The cast of The White Lotus season 1.

When the first season of The White Lotus premiered in 2021, few could have suspected that it would become one of the best shows on HBO and Max. Even series creator Mike White considered The White Lotus to be a six-episode one-off story. But viewer response to this black comedy miniseries was so strong that White and HBO realized that they had a hit on their hands. That's why the series was quickly renewed, and it premiered on HBO and Max in 2022 just a little over a year after the first season.

The White Lotus season 3 was confirmed in November 2022, but unfortunately, the hiatus between seasons is going to be over two years. Each of the first two seasons featured an almost completely different cast of characters, although Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries reprised their characters in season 2 to establish some connections with the previous season. There aren't currently a lot of details known about the third season. Regardless, we're sharing everything we know about The White Lotus season 3, which includes most of the cast, the theme and setting, as well as when fans can expect the show to return.
