    As Primetimer's Joe Reid writes, we're having a very Soleil Moon Frye moment right now. Not only is she starring in the Peacock revival of Punky Brewster, the show that made her a child star in the late '80s, but she's also directed a well-reviewed new documentary built around camcorder footage she shot in the '90s of herself and a verible who's who of teen stars of the day. Kid 90 drops on Hulu today.
