After years as “the place where shows go to die,” Fridays has once again become a hot TV night, especially for streaming services. Here’s a quick snapshot of what’s new and of interest starting Friday, March 12:
Kid 90 (Hulu). Back when she was a child star and right after, Soleil Moon Frye of Punky Brewster fame videotaped hundreds of hours of her teenage years in the ’90s. Think of it as what ‘tweens and teens did before everybody had a camera in their hands. The tapes have been thrown into a documentary blender in time to embarrass her famous friends at the time, including Balthazar Getty, David Arquette, Danica McKellar, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Brian Austin Green.
The One (Netflix). This eight episode series stars Hannah Ware in a sci-fi series set in the near future when a DNA test can be used to determine your soul mate. Based on the John Marrs novel.
