Re: SHX - Wonder Woman: Recon Interrupted - Abbie Maley

This looks good. I like the actress. I don't have a foot fetish, but I have always thought boot removal can be a sexy aspect of SHIP peril. Sometimes it is the little things that make a SHIP film special, and Damien excels at those aspects. I am going to have to check this one out.
