The Absurd Brilliance of “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”

Season 2 Episode 13

“Is you is, or is you ain’t my constituents?”

The Coen Brother’s classic O Brother, Where Art Thou? is an absolute classic that not only spins a tale of a hillbilly version of The Odyssey, it also represents the American South in a funny (not insulting) way.

In the Episode:

  • The portrayal of southern people: inspiring younger generations to explore our culture
