Yeah, Sisyphus is a bad guy, but that doesn't mean he isn't fun to watch. This crafty king is so wily that he outsmarts Death himself, and he actually manages to escape the Underworld... twice! Sure, Sisyphus deserves to be locked up for all his evil deeds, but sometimes watching a dude who's a step ahead of everybody else do his thing is irresistible.
In the end, Sisyphus totally gets what's coming to him and is doomed to roll a giant boulder up a hill for all eternity. Though he definitely earns his punishment, many people have found connection with his plight. It seems like a lot of folks have moments where they feel like whatever stuff they're doing is as tiresome and pointless as Sisyphus' endless task. Though it's not really a great feeling, it can be good sometimes to know that others get just as frustrated sometimes.
