Sledge Hammer!

One explanation that has been suggested is that the nuclear warhead which detonated at the end of the first season was an experimental model that was designed to only destroy buildings and not humans. Hence why Captain Trunk appears to have survived the explosion in the final shot so presumably Sledge and Dori did too. The city was therefore rebuilt after the explosion, season 1 was spread over the 5 year period leading up to it and those season 2 episodes which make contemporary references are set after the explosion. Writer/producer Alan Spencer has given this theory lukewarm endorsement saying it is ‘as good as any’.
