Probably none, it's probably best to go into it without trying to think about the films. The will graham character is sort of weird at first but I started to like him more in the second episode. Hannibal doesn't hasn't had tons of screen time yet but Mikkelsen is pretty good as him. Biggest gripe is that he has a weird accent and some times is hard to understand. He's pretty creepy though. Already been like 3 scenes where re enact short scenes from the movies almost verbatim which is cool.
