    Where did you find this ungrammatical sentence?

    Always capitalise 'I' and the first word of a sentence.

    I would say:

    I can't understand everything he says.

    If by 'deep' you mean difficult to understand his vocabulary, I've listed several possible options in a rough order of likely usefulness.

    See also some other grammatical corrections I've made to your example sentence.

    Re: sentence : "some of his words is too deep"

    I think 'TV' should be capitalized and 'show' should be plural unless there is only one.
    'Deep' is a literal translation from the OP's native language.

    You can use show to talk of a series.
